What are Flood Boards?
When there is a good chance that your property will be flooded or the rising water is pushing forward all the time, you want to know that you can protect your home or business with confidence! That’s why at Stormguard Floodplan we strongly recommend that if your property is at the risk of flooding then you consider the use of flood boards. There is a constant battle between whether sandbags or Flood Boards are the superior flood defence system. We believe that the Flood Boards are a much safer way to protect your home or business.
Sandbags and Flood Boards are both Flood Defences system but which is better?
Sandbags can be very useful in times of flooding for an easy solution to a flooding problem. In the long term a sandbag barrier is not efficient for keeping flood water away from a home. The sandbag is only a working flood defence when used alongside plastic sheets, as it is common for them to allow water to pass through. Sandbags are known to become contaminated with the bacteria that lives in dirty flood water, this can be dangerous when having to touch them or remove them once the flooding has stopped. There is the added ease of being able to put out sandbags when there is a flood warning.
What is a flood board?
A Flood Board is a flood protection system with a difference. The easy to use light weight PVC board is able to create a water tight seal for your doors and even for windows. The flood board material is moisture resistant which guarantees that no flood water can penetrate through. Once the Flood Board is in place then you can have peace of mind that flood water cannot get through to your home. Flood Boards are a great way to keep flood water away from your home. Once they have been set up they can be re-used any time your property is threatened by floods.
Deploying a flood board is simple. It’s easy to fit into position after a flood warning or heavy rain. All that needs to be done is for you to slide the Flood board into the nylon channels that are fixed to the door posts in a process that takes less than 30 seconds. Flood Boards can be bought and fitted yourself but that does not come with the Stormguard Floodplan security that it has been fitted correctly and professionally. At Stormguard Floodplan we measure, cut and finish the job on the day so there is no room for mistakes. The job is only complete when you the customer is happy with the result.
