The Super Flood Log flood barrier is a modular system designed to withstand high velocity water loads and to be highly resistant to heavy impact forces (hydrostatic flood and hydrodynamic loads calculated per ASCE 7-10 with 8 FT/S maximum water velocity). Tested to protect at higher flood heights, it is particularly applicable to flash flood and hurricane prone locations in both small and large installations. It has a long and proven history as an effective flood barrier in all flood-prone areas of the world, and is one of the systems preferred by most of the larger insurance companies and governments.
The Super Flood Log passed rigorous certification testing to perform in floods up to six feet, higher than required by International Building Code based on standards set by the Federal Emergency Management Association and FM Global, the world’s largest business and property insurer.
The system itself can be installed either across specific openings or as a perimeter defense. The system comprises of “C” shaped support posts and hollow aluminum beams, the ends of which mount (slide) down between the jaws of each post. These beams stack on edge with each other with a tongue and groove connection. The bottom beam of each span is fitted with a large rubber seal that makes contact with the foundation surface thereby achieving a water tight seal. No fixture points are required, making an extremely aesthetic system when not installed. The end posts of a linear installation can also be mounted internally within the wall structure making it even more unobtrusive.
This system can be supplied in almost any configuration from closed circles and rectangles to linear “straight”’ runs of any length and a maximum height of approximately 9 feet. It can also be engineered to accommodate slopes of 20 degrees, and be supplied a stepped format for greater gradients. Each application will be engineered to suit its site-specific conditions optimizing the system’s reaction time and effectiveness.
It offers one of the lowest reaction times of flood control systems on the market. Super Flood Log is the premier system for manually installed flood barriers due to its easy storage and installation.
