UK Flood Barriers Ltd

Property Protection & Resilience Systems and PLP Surveys

Since being established in 2007, UK Flood Barriers has grown to become the UK’s leading specialist flood contractor, project managing contracts across domestic property schemes for both public and private sector organisations.

Working closely with end clients, such as the Environment Agency (as a framework approved supplier), local authorities and main scheme contractors, as well as individual homeowners, we provide a full ‘end to end’ service managing all stages of the project delivery process including planning, survey, product specification, installation, client/customer communication and maintenance.

All of our surveyors and installers are certified Flood Professionals, meaning they are certified to survey and install to the requirements of BSI Flood Protection Installation Kitemark™ (KM642489).

Every team member is fully conversant with construction methods used in all types of buildings from Grade 1 listed to modern design. Therefore, regardless of property type, our highly experienced and qualified team has the knowledge and expertise to carry out a full and comprehensive Property Level flood mitigation survey. The survey is crucial in determining all the key points of water ingress across an entire property as well as identifying the most effective products to provide flood protection.

UK Flood Barriers always recommends the installation of BSI Kitemark  flood protection products (or manufacturers’ equivalent standard). Our team of certified installers is highly experienced in ensuring every home is protected with an individually tailored flood defence product package.

We also place great emphasis on customer aftercare.  Comprehensive product deployment and maintenance training is undertaken with the customer by the certified installer, whilst a dedicated head office customer service team is available to answer any questions customers may have.

Testing Facilities

Our Worcestershire head office is home to the UK’s only privately owned, BSI approved Research & Development testing facility. This allows us to push the boundaries of flood defence, support new product development, achieve Kitemark Certification (product Kitemark – PAS 1188-1:2014) and adopt ‘best practice’ installation techniques.

The Test Tank features the Flood House, which allows visitors to experience flood conditions from inside the house, which is protected with Flood Defender Doors, Anti-Flood Airbricks, a Non-Return Valve and Sump & Pump system.

The Test Tank facility is also available for use by external organisations who wish to test their products.
