Air bricks are low level vents located around your home to prevent the sub-floor void from rotting. Unfortunately, they are one of the major weaknesses for water to enter your property in a flood.

Air brick flood covers allow you to maintain necessary air flow to your property, ensuring you do not suffer from damp rot. Anti-flood air bricks can restrict the air flow to your property because they have a device inside the brick which is activated in a flood event. These devices (flaps or balls) restrict the air flow that normal air bricks provide.

Air brick flood covers require a permanent frame to be installed around air bricks. The red flood cover is removeable and can be installed in seconds. The extra strength clips pull the cover into the frame, and the seal protects the air brick from flooding.

Air Brick Flood Cover Advantages

  • Air brick covers are easy to install, and do not require any expertise or concrete. This makes them more cost effective and quicker to install, particularly if you are retro fitting to a property.
  • Air brick covers comply with Environment Agency guidelines on protecting your property from flooding.
  • Air brick flood covers are quicker to install than alternatives, such as sand bags.
  • Bright red cover to remind you to remove the cover once the flood risk has subsided.

The Buffalo Air Brick Flood Cover comes in a terracotta frame, with a bright red removeable cover. The seal is located inside the cover.
