Self Closing Flood Barrier (SCFB™)

No Power, No Manpower, No storage costs, virtually maintenance free, Invisible and Automatic.   The self closing barrier has been in operation since 1998 and has 100% success rate.  As we have seen many times in the past number of years, flooding occurs late at night or early morning. Many properties that may have had flood defence systems may not have installed them prior to the flood. The self closing barrier negates all these fears. The self closing flood barrier can be built flush with the ground or built into a wall. The SCFB™ has received numerous awards including the coveted Gold Award for Best Civil Technical Invention in the World.
