Frederick Crowther required a robust solution that delivered business continuity and protected valuable machinery from flooding.
Previous flooding meant a minimum of 1400mm high protection to the factory loading bays was required.
The loading bays needed a simple to install barrier system and firm ground conditions due to heavy vehicles.
A range of apertures from single doors to loading bays required flood protection.
Frederick Crowther & Sons was flooded in Calderdale in the 2015 Boxing Day floods. The company has large industrial building with multiple loading bays and apertures.
The Flood Company was asked to design and install a manual, cost effective flood defence solution to protect the building.
The key driver for installing flood protection was to deliver business continuity and avoid the cost of damaged stock and machinery, loss of income from downtime and prevent disruption to a production line.
The Flood Company cast a new concrete plinths along the loading bays and inserted metal plates to create a flat and robust threshold for the barriers to sit on and seal.
The Flood Company installed our Buffalo HD Flood Barrier system to 1400mm high, which uses aluminium logs that are manually positioned across the opening prior to a flood alert. A number of demountable posts are required to create a flood wall in the loading bays.
