Swire Properties

Sometimes you need help in a flash. Swire Properties recently contacted Flood Risk America, a flood protection and flood risk management company, about protecting its buildings from potential damage. The large commercial real estate firm in downtown Miami was particularly worried about keeping water out during flash flood events.

After Flood Risk America conducted a flood risk analysis, they noted that glass openings were part of the facility to be protected. FRA Flood Compression Panels were recommended to seal the openings. Swire installed the panels just weeks before a flash flood occurred around one of its buildings and its facilities remained dry!


The lightweight, custom-made FRA Flood Compression Panels create a sealed barrier around the opening with the use of a compression bar. The bar allows for the panel to firmly seal against the glass without the use of side anchors. Crafted from high-strength aluminum, the compression beam is easy to handle and more cost-effective than most steel shoring beams. The panel system can be installed within minutes to quickly protect facilities from flooding from excessive rain fall.

At 30 to 40 percent less expensive than conventional flood panels, FRA Flood Panels are a more economical way to protect assets. In addition, the panels exceed FEMA guidelines, comply with National Flood Insurance Program requirements as well as all applicable flood plain regulations.
