Andel FloodWall is a modular, low-cost, perimeter flood defence system designed to give long-term peace of mind to homes and businesses at threat from local flood incidents. Robust, cost-effective and easy to install, Andel FloodWall is constructed from 100% non- porous, post-industrial plastic waste, with steel reinforcement for added strength.
Andel FloodWall is the cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative for perimeter flood defence and is suited to commercial, residential, new build and retrofit installations.
Andel FloodWall has been designed and tested to meet the requirements of PAS 1188-2:2014 for flood defence purposes.
Andel FloodWall is a modular design which allows for easy transportation and can be quickly assembled on site in a similar way to conventional perimeter fencing.
The sections and posts are constructed from nonporous, durable, 100% post-industrial recycled plastic waste with steel reinforced rods running through each section to provide added strength.
The sections have an aesthetically sympathetic wood grain finish to blend into any environment.
All section joints are sealed during construction with an industrial, waterproof hybrid polymer. The height of the flood wall is calculated based on a flood risk assessment and can increase in height by 200mm increments.
Andel FloodWall can be installed onto an existing and suitable hard surface where further work would need to be carried out to ensure the system meets the required standard.
Alternatively the hybrid polymer sealed flood wall system is fitted into a specially constructed, substantial foundation of reinforced concrete. The foundation runs below ground, out of sight, for the full length of the flood wall – providing a robust and effective weight-bearing defence against floodwater.
In a flood event, the greatest force is exerted where the wall meets the ground. Unlike some other products on the market, special care and development has been undertaken to ensure that the Andel FloodWall will withstand the full force of floodwater in a flood event.
The flood wall’s steel-reinforced posts fit into a steel base plate which is bolted deep into the reinforced concrete foundation with chemical M16 stainless steel anchors that bond with the concrete providing a level of strength that will resist the weight of floodwater in the most severe of floods.
Andel FloodWall is an innovative design that has been specially adapted for the flood defence market from Andel’s market-leading ReBund. ReBund is a tried and tested containment product that has been installed nationwide for thousands of electrical distributors and oil storage site operators, protecting assets and the environment for over a decade.
