As climate change intensifies, the threat of flooding has become a pressing concern for homes and businesses worldwide. Over the years, advancements in flood defence technologies have played a vital role in mitigating the devastating impacts of flooding. From traditional sandbags methods to recent cutting-edge solutions, we’ve explored in this blog the evolution of flood defences – including how they have progressed to the high-tech modern flood protection systems offered by Stormguard Floodplan.

Traditional Methods

In times gone by, homeowners and communities used rudimentary methods such as sandbags and makeshift levees to protect their properties from flooding. However, with the increasingly occurring floods that climate change brings, these methods had limited effectiveness, showing an inability to withstand the force of severe floods.
