Optional Extras & Accessories
Whilst the standard components of the WaterWall and WaterDoor System provide everything you need to protect the openings of your property/premises from the threat of flooding, Caro Flood Defence Systems offer a number of optional extras and accessories to aid in the appearance and safe-keeping of your flood protection product.
To make the components as unobtrusive as possible, Caro Flood Defence Systems offer the facility to powder coat to any RAL colour not only the Wall Rails, but also the Aluminium Panels if desired.
Packers for Wall Rails
Packers are available for fixed wall rails to accommodate the positioning of existing door/patio door thresholds thereby allowing the barrier to stand proud of the opening. These are available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm options.
All equipment from Caro Flood Defence Systems can be supplied with security fixings to enable the flood barrier to be left in situ without the concern of the equipment being stolen.
Covers for Wall Rails
Manufactured in Aluminium, the Covers are designed to protect the permanently-fixed Wall Rails and to hide the rails from view when the barrier is not in use. The covers can also be powder coated in any RAL colour to match the surroundings.
As well as the WaterWall and WaterDoor, you may wish to consider some further products when protecting your property/premises from the threat of flooding.
Please note: the following items are not manufactured by Caro Flood Defence Systems.
Anti-Flood Airbricks allow unrestricted airflow underneath the property, but under flood conditions, they are automatically shut off by the rising waters. Unlike sandbags and covers, no flood warning or pre-flood intervention is required allowing the end-user to 'Fit and Forget'.
There are a variety of cost-effective Airbrick Covers available in the marketplace, but all are designed for the same purpose - to prevent the ingress of rising floodwater. During a flood, standard airbricks can allow thousands of litres of water into a property within a matter of minutes.
CT1 is a sealant that will successfully bond Metal including Aluminium. The clear, odourless and UV resistant adhesive has been used in many WaterWall and WaterDoor installations and is recommended by Caro Flood Defence Systems for the fixing of its Wall Rails to the brickwork/masonry.
