Self-operated flood barriers for infrastructure and property protection
Summary:
A Cyprus based SME of professional engineers and architects, has developed an innovative flood prevention product for property and infrastructure protection. This innovative product can be either pre-installed or portable.
The portable version can be installed across a road allowing unobstructed passage of vehicles up to the moment when the road becomes unusable due to flood.
The company is seeking potential partners worldwide for commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
This Cyprus SME is owned and managed by professional engineers and architects and has a long experience in the construction industry and particularly in measures to limit the risk of flood damage and flood prevention.

The SME also has a long experience in research activities and has participated in a number of national and international research projects and is active in the field of innovation in general.

The company has developed a unique patented product which is self-operated, requiring no power, no human intervention, offering 24 hours / 7 days passive protection. It is bottom hinged and requires little if any excavation in front of the opening to be protected.

The flood barrier is very versatile and can be manufactured according to customer specifications (made-to-measure) and with the surface texture and colours selected by the customer.

The barriers are very versatile and are supplied in a modular form and are easy and simple to install.

The product can be used on
· Building Entrances
· Rivers/ Canals
· Coastal Promenade
· Crests of Underground Ramps

All materials are non-ferrous giving the product long durability and low maintenance needs.

The company is now looking to expand its overseas client base by offering its technical knowledge and product and it therefore seeks suitable agents or distributors worldwide.

Advantages and Innovations:
The flood barriers are designed and built tailor made to fit the specific client requirements.

They are designed by professional engineers, in accordance with the latest standards applicable at the particular location.

The barriers are fabricated using high quality non-ferrous materials, cut to size using CNC technology, ensuring a perfect, watertight fit.

The main advantages of this patented self-operated product are:
· The product is bottom hinged requiring minimum if any excavation
· It turns to upright position before flood level reaches grade level, thus requiring no side walls or thresholds
· When the gate is upright, the recess in the ground is fenced by a safety gate, which also serves as an arrest mechanism for debris impact
· Can be build according to the dimensions and other requirements of the client
· Requires minimum maintenance
· Can be used in different locations and applications

The portable version is currently the only passive portable flood barrier in the world. Contrary to other portable flood barriers, they allow traffic to pass over the barriers after the barriers are installed.
