WaterDoor Case Studies

Case Study 1 - Lincolnshire

Following a “high tide” incident previously, the East Lindsey District Council had to find the best and most convenient method of protecting their tenants in the large, on beach, Concession building on the sea front.
 
Both the Caro WaterWall and WaterDoor products fitted this need, allowing for full access, both out front as well as at the rear, during the busy season for the kiosks. If needed the barriers could be erected within minutes.
 
Once this busy season had finished it meant that the Concession holders were able to erect their barriers and leave them up through the winter, if they so desired, in the knowledge that they would not be affected should another flood event happen whilst they weren’t there.

Case Study 2 - Cumbria

The Residents Committee of these private apartments in Cumbria, investigated a number of options when searching for a barrier that would protect them in the, extremely likely, event of another river breach.
 
Using the skills and resources of a local Builder’s Merchant, with a specialist Flood Defences Dept., they determined that the Caro WaterDoor (and WaterWall)  barriers would give them all they needed by way of peace of mind in a fully demountable system.
 
As it was a case that all the flats affected were at ground level and that these flats wanted to continue to enjoy their easy access to the gardens and thereby the nearby river, they had to be assured that the system chosen would be removable and not detract from their enjoyment.
 
Caro WaterDoor and WaterWall fitted all these needs.
 
Using pre-fabricated assemblies, the barriers were able to be positioned and installed quickly and accurately.
