Alteau Flood Barriers
Free-standing water barrier for flood control, available in various lengths and heights
ALTEAU FLOOD BARRIERS
Designed primarily for use by the Emergency Services, this is a free-standing water-barrier for flood control, creating water reservoirs, damming streams and containing chemical spills.Suitable for sustained use at major incidents. Easily stored, transported, deployed and recovered:
Each section is simply positioned and unrolled
Inflation is by the weight of the flood-water itself (which also provides additional stability)
Automatically deflates with the falling water, and can be simply hosed down for reuse or return to storage
Can be used on various surfaces, including gently undulating surfaces. Available in various sizes, and as straights and 90o corners. Multiple sections can be joined simply with the integral Velcro fasteners, to create lengths of several hundred metres or to provide an enclosed area.
Key Features / Benefits:
Versatile: Can be used on grass, gravel, concrete, tarmac, paving etc, and the fabric can mould itself to most gently undulating surfaces.
~ straight lengths, from 4m up to 15m
~ 90o corner-sections
~ 4 heights, from 0.35m up to 1.0m
~ 2 weights:
- Standard: 610g PVC with 300g PVC fins
- Lightweight: 300g PVC with Polypropylene fins

Easily Deployed: Can be simply unrolled in minutes. No attachments or on-site construction is needed for the majority of situations. The flood-water itself provides additional stability (and there is the option to attach heavy-duty pegs for further security if needed).
Self-Inflating: Inflated simply by the weight of the flood-water itself - no external power source or pre-inflation is required.
Extendable / Customisable: Multiple sections can be joined simply with the integral Velcro fasteners, to create lengths of several hundred metres or to provide an enclosed area (eg 4 corners and 6 x 10m sections will provide a 200m2 enclosure)
Reusable: Automatically deflates with the falling water, and can be simply hosed down and rolled up for reuse or return to storage.
Environmental Impact: No affect on the environment, and leaves no permanent damage to the site.
