With seasons becoming wetter and rainfall records constantly being broken across the UK, Flood defence has never been more important.
Annual flood damage is costing in the region of £1.1 billion each year and with one in three commercial properties at risk of flooding (According to Aviva), protecting your business assets is vital.
Whilst the government is pledging £62m in flood funding to help protect communities in England, commercial properties, utility buildings and commercial housing all need effective flood defence to reduce the risk of flooding.
Bradbury Group’s M2MFL doors are designed to provide protection for isolated or vulnerable locations regularly at risk of flooding. Our flood defence doors are tested to PAS 1188-1:2014 and independently accredited to ensure they meet the standards set for defending your property against flooding.
This standard covers the specification for Building aperture products and applies to products which provide temporary seals when static flood water rises between 540 and 840mm. Alongside doors, other products covered in this category include flood barriers, air vent covers, sealant, and building products with automatic operation to prevent flooding.
Testing is carried out by BRE Group and involves assessment using static water, waves up to 0.1 metre high and currents up to 1.0 metre per second. Results are recorded based on how much water is leaked each hour for every square metre of gap.
Alongside certified flood protection, our M2MFL doors can also be manufactured to LPCB Accreditation with a security standard of between SR2 and SR4.
The bespoke nature of Bradbury Group’s doorsets means your building can be protected against flooding and security risks in the most vulnerable areas.
