These are intended to provide temporary flood-risk reduction. These barriers are generally setup just prior to a flood event and are generally taken down immediately after the flood threat has passed. Setup of these barriers does not require any permanent fixtures to which the barrier is attached. Flood warning times prior to the flood event must be long enough in order for these barriers to be setup and become flood worthy. Perimeter barriers are basically of two general types depending upon the method of making the barriers stable to resist the forces of flood water. These methods are generally water filled or sand filled in order to provide product weight and stability and using the weight of the flood water itself on the barrier to anchor the product and provide the needed stability. Depending on the product, they can generally be deployed in a large variety of conditions. These products are usually the flood-proofing system.

These are intended to close openings in flood-proofing systems. They are generally categorized as closing window and door openings of buildings. They are usually a part of a permanently-installed flood-proofing system. They are removed from their closure position after the flood event passes in order to be able to freely use the opening that the product closed. These products are part of a flood-proofing system.

Flood Mitigation Valves
These are generally used in sewer and drain systems to prevent the flow of flood water through these systems and into the building or structure desiring flood-risk reduction. These devices are permanently installed and do not function until flood water reaches sufficient depths that will allow the water to flow into the building via the sewer or drain system. These devices are part of a flood proofing system.
There are currently no certified flood mitigation valves. We are actively seeking semi-permanent barriers than can meet the rigorous standards required to receive FM approval. If you’re a manufacturing looking to receive certification, please learn about our application process here.
Flood Mitigation Pumps
These are used for the removal of unwanted water. Types of flood mitigation pumps include but are not limited to submersible (e.g., a sump pump) and self-priming pumps. Flood mitigation pumps shall be utilized in one of the following applications: as part of an open automatic barrier system, installed in a building and used for removal of unwanted water, and/or as a portable emergency device used for removal of unwanted water from a building.

Penetration Sealing Devices
Sealant products are generally used to coat material that is not completely resistant to the passage of water when exposed to floods. The sealant material is applied in order to make the material waterproof in terms of the passage of water through the material. These products are permanently applied. They are part of a flood-proofing system.
There are currently no certified penetration sealing devices. We are actively seeking semi-permanent barriers than can meet the rigorous standards required to receive FM approval. If you’re a manufacturing looking to receive certification, please learn about our application process here.
A permanent, passive flood barrier constructed of reinforced glass material that is set and sealed within a structural frame. The frame is then installed and sealed within the structural opening. Flood glazing barriers may be configured as single panels (i.e. windows) or as multiple panels in a modular series to form a wall structure of the desired length. Flood glazing may also be installed within another permanent barrier structure such as a flood wall. Flood glazing may be used for opening barrier and/or perimeter barrier applications.
There are currently no certified flood glazing products. We are actively seeking semi-permanent barriers than can meet the rigorous standards required to receive FM approval. If you’re a manufacturing looking to receive certification, please learn about our application process here.
