When heavy rain and floods occur, citizens’ safety is placed at risk. Many residents in flooded areas are forced to evacuate, leaving homes and other property prone to the destructive powers of the elements. For a country that experiences calamities of this kind year in and year out, we should be experts at disaster management by now.
Several factors, however, get in the way of employing effective solutions. Rapid and unabated urbanization without rhyme or reason or even the slightest indication of urban planning has been deemed responsible for the state of chaos that aggravates the crisis when disaster strikes. Irresponsible property developers have been known to build projects over existing canals and creeks, thus blocking the flow of water within the city. And, of course, the recalcitrant informal settlers who treat the city’s waterways as their public toilet and dumping grounds continue to contribute to the constant flooding.
But wait! Perhaps there is hope! Even if flooding occurs, maybe there is a way to cope with it.
Flood Control Asia RS may have found the most effective solution to the flooding woes. Consider some of its flagship products that address flooding concerns.
Flood Control Asia RS provides state-of-the-art flood prevention products guaranteed to give protection not only to your properties and businesses, but more importantly, to your loved ones.
As there is no particular flood barrier system that can solve all flooding scenarios, Flood Control Asia RS provides a wide array of flood barrier products and flood protection systems.
1. RS INERO™ MOBILE FLOOD BARRIERS
These mobile flood barriers are both durable and easy to install, making them the most fitting defense systems for emergency situations. The RS Inero™ Mobile Flood Barriers differ from the other flood protection systems since it does not need permanent installation. These temporary flood protection barriers can be propped up when needed and removed when the flooding incident is over. Made from marine-grade aluminum alloy, these flood water barricades are extremely durable and lightweight, and are perfect for emergency response.
2. RS DEMOUNTABLE FLOOD BARRIER
RS Demountable Flood Barriers can be tailored to fit various structural forms like arcs, sharp corners, 90-degree turns, and slopes as steep as 20 degrees. They can protect structures from flood as high as four meters. Moreover, they can be rigged to ground plates and anchors so they can resist the strong push of floodwater pressure.
Once the flood panels have been assembled, their seals can be tightened through the compression clamps; thus, preventing the possibility of leaks.
Most importantly, RS Demountable Flood Barriers are made to last. They are aluminum panels, which make them resistant to all forms of corrosive substances. They are extremely durable, and can resist blunt forces caused by floating debris.
3. RS LIFT-HINGED FLOOD GATE
The Lift-Hinged Floodgate can be secured through a single-point locking mechanism, which is concealed in a tamper-proof metal cover. This makes it a suitable and 100% safe residential floodgate. The lift-hinged type is not designed to be a floodgate for homes only, it can also be used for vehicle entrances and for industrial areas.
4. RS AUTOMATIC FLIP-UP FLOOD BARRIER
Flip-Up Flood Barriers offer permanent protection and are fully recessed into the ground. Automated Flip-Up Flood Barriers can accommodate entry points as wide as 12 meters (with maximum flood height of two meters).
Since they are automatic flood barriers, they can spring into action when there’s any threat of flood. They can also be operated remotely through a push button mechanism that has a reliable backup in case of power blackout.
Flip-Up Flood Barriers are suitable protection for historic and scenic sites, where total flood protection must not alter the environment’s aesthetics.
