WaterWall Component Parts
Wall Rails & Panel Sealing ScrewsThe permanently fixed wall rails are available in two forms, either “reveal fix” which means fixing in between the reveals/brickwork of the doorway or “face fix” which means fixing onto the face of the brickwork. Each wall rail comes with a recess to accept a Wall Rail Compression Block (see Wall Rail Compression Blocks) and has a seal on the inner side to form the water tight seal when the WaterWall is deployed. The panel sealing screws protrude horizontally through the fixed wall rails and demountable posts to secure the Aluminium panels against the rubber seals on the inside of the rails/posts to prevent any flood water ingress.
Panel ExtrusionEach individual panel is 300mm high x 20mm thick and is supplied with rubber seals to prevent water ingress. As all WaterWall barriers are manufactured to order, the Aluminium panel is cut to the required length.
Demountable PostThe demountable post is required for WaterWall barriers that span in excess of 2500mm wide and above 600mm high. The component is deployed into a pre-installed, unobtrusive ground insert.
Ground Insert & Post CapThe 120mm diameter ground insert acts as a socket for WaterWall installations involving the requirement for a demountable post. When the barrier is not deployed, a lockable post cap seal is used to protect the ground insert.
Wall Rail Compression BlockThe compression block is inserted into a recess at the top of the fixed wall rails and is used to ensure adequate downward pressure is applied to each end of the barrier.
