How to erect a WaterWall
Step 1When the barrier is not deployed, the opening remains unobstructed allowing full access as and when required.
Step 2When the threat of flooding becomes apparent, commence the deployment process by unfastening ground insert dust caps with the 6mm allen key provided.
Step 3Once the caps have been loosened across the entire barrier length, lift the caps out to prepare each insert for deployment of demountable post.
Step 4Before inserting the demountable post, please ensure that the insert and its immediate surroundings are free from any debris.
Step 5Insert demountable post into ground insert.
Step 6Twist demountable post 90-degrees into position to accept Panel Extrusion. Note - there is no need to tighten them in place at this stage.
Step 7Continue this process along the entire barrier length until all posts are deployed.
Step 8Begin inserting the first panel into the rails, ensuring that you start with the rubber sealing bottom panel first (these panels have seals on both top and bottom).
Step 9Continue the process of inserting all bottom panels along the entire barrier length.
Step 10Complete the installation by inserting all other panels until you arrive at the top panel (the only panels without rubber seals).
Step 11Tighten demountable posts by applying a 10mm socket wrench to the threaded bar located centrally in the top of each demountable post and then swivel the top locking block so that it is positioned over the top of the panels.
Step 12Partially tighten the horizontal compression screws either by hand or using the 6mm Allen key provided, so that panels begin to depress against the rubber seal on the inside of the channels.
Step 13Partially tighten the vertical compression screws on the top locking block by hand or using the 8mm Allen key provided, which will depress the rubber seal on the bottom aluminium panel to the floor.
Step 14Insert fixed end rail compression blocks and partially tighten by hand or using the 8mm Allen key.
Step 15The horizontal screws can now be fully tightened followed by the tightening of top locking and end rail compression blocks using the necessary Allen key.
