Avoiding The Risks Of Flood Damage
Simply put, flood damage will have devastating effects on your home or business. Dealing with the aftermath of a flood is more than just ‘cleaning up’. Flood water can cause significant damage to equipment, which can result in the loss of stock, valuable business electronics, loss of income etc., all of which significantly harm your business’ bottom line.
Protecting your home or business from the effects of flood damage is cost effective in protecting not just the property but the contents, some of which may be irreplaceable. If you want to protect your property from the horrific damage caused by flood water, our team of experts are on hand to help and advise.

How Do StormMeister® Flood Doors Work?
Our Active Flood Seals™ provide protection from flood water in three steps,
which results in the hydrodynamic power of floodwater itself being used to
create the flood seal.
Firstly, our doors don’t have the complex locking mechanisms that can be
found on other flood protection products.
StormMeister® flood doors utilise multi chamber structures, where flood
water enters the chambers and it is the pressure of flood water acting on
the chamber walls that forms the flood seal.
By using the pressure of flood water, the seals are only stressed during flood situations unlike compression seals that cannot differentiate between a flood situation and normal everyday locking. StormMeister® seals therefore have a lifespan considerably longer than compression seals.
Why Should You Choose Our Flood Defence Products?
Conventional flood protection technology is often difficult to operate and relies on handle force transmitting pressure to compression seals. This means that conventional flood doors need to be tightly locked which puts not just the seals but the locking mechanisms themselves under undue stress. However, thanks to our StormMeister® Active Flood Seal™, our flood defence doors are no more difficult to operate than ordinary doors.
At our purpose built research and development facility, we continually test for performance, ease of use, installer friendliness, and overall reliability. Our commitment to research and development is one of the reasons you should choose to purchase StormMeister® flood protection products. We are also a company committed to protection of the environment particularly in the sourcing of timber for our timber based flood protection products.
Timber is a fantastic building material; however it is only as sustainable as its place of origin. We use ethically sourced timber from traceable places of origin, for example the Akwa Iborn State logging camp in Nigeria where most of the work is carried out manually by locals; note the lack of machinery in the below photograph.
