“We are pleased to share the outstanding water performance testing results of our opening barrier applications, having our Flood Barriers conform to the highest standards of quality, technical integrity and performance. The FM Approvals accreditation is a testament to our hard work and commitment to excellence in flood risk mitigation and prevention domain,” said Steve Gill, CEO at Flood Risk America.
The FRA Flood Panel barrier is comprised of a moveable panel constructed of lightweight composite material. The panel is bolted to the edges of the protected opening and/or ground surface. The panel is also fitted with a closed cell neoprene (CCN) foam gasket along the outer sealed edges which, when compressed, will create a watertight seal.
