OUR EXPERTISE IS DEDICATED TO THE PROTECTION
OF PEOPLE AND PROPERTY
In situations where large open areas require protection against flooding or high water pressure, the flood barrier is designed with intermediate supporting posts.
These supporting post are designed to take account of the different pressures and ground conditions.
The dimensions of each section will be determined by your specific requirements in relation to storage capacities and design criteria.
Profiles sections are defined according to specific design criteria (length to protect/pressure, see our stress diagram for our 4 different profiles). Sometimes a compromise may have to be found between financial and technical considerations. The cost of flood barriers may vary according to the number of supporting posts required, longer planks may allow for less supporting posts resulting in a cheaper option.
Due consideration should also be given to type of anchorage support.
Finally our engineers would take into consideration the technical definition of the supporting posts, ground conditions and together with the civil engineering company, dimensions of stubs, foundation and concrete are agreed.
