The Buffalo® Anti-flood Airbrick Features & Benefits

An airbrick is a special type of brick manufactured with holes in to allow the circulation of air under buildings with suspended floors.

The act of circulating air prevents moisture building up as a result of cold or damp air in voids or empty spaces, which can cause timbers and other materials to rot. Airbricks are built into most properties and buildings that have suspended floors, usually close to the ground.

However, while these holes allow air to circulate, they also let in water. Up to 500 litres of water a minute can enter a property through a single airbrick, which can cause a building to flood in a matter of minutes.

That’s where the Buffalo Anti-flood Airbrick comes in.

The Buffalo Anti-Flood Airbrick is innovatively designed in the same shape as a standard airbrick, and in normal conditions will allow air to flow through and ventilate the space underneath the floor, as intended.

Inside the Buffalo Anti-flood Airbrick is an innovative floating seal which automatically closes the vent when flood water approaches. A valve is lifted by the pressure of the water, creating a flood seal in the vent and preventing water from entering the property.

The seal will re-open once the water has receded, allowing ventilation to the sub-floor of the building once again.

The Buffalo Anti-flood Airbrick is a passive flood protection product, which means no human intervention is required to prevent the property from flooding.

As well as the innovative automatic valve, the UK manufactured Buffalo Anti-flood Airbrick…

  • Has a unique stepped front grille to reduce wind and driven rain.
  • Meets British Flood Protection Products Standards
  • Allows twice the airflow of other anti-flood airbricks
  • Has an integral grip allowing multiple airbricks to be stacked together
  • The brick has a removable grille, allowing easy access for maintenance and inspection purposes
  • It complies with all relevant building regulations.
  • It can be installed in old or new build properties
  • Colours: Terracotta, Buff, Black, White, Engineering Blue, Neutral (Opaque)
