#4 | Flood protection by diversion
Flash Flood – Torrential floods: protect a facade, the entrance to a street, divert the flow to a neutral zone
It is often more effective, simpler and cheaper to install a flexible flood barrier along an entire facade rather than several individual door barriers, watertight doors, built-in gates or sandbags.
The Water-Gate anti-flood dam does not require any site preparation, additional equipment or fixed installation likely to harm the appearance of the site.

Water-Gate flood protection fits any kind of terrain: mounds, ditches, pavements, stairs, garage entry ramps, etc. The terrain does not have to be flat.
Water-Gate can pass over obstacles. The pressure of the water on the fabric forces it to cling to the object, thus avoiding leaks.
The Water-Gate flood barrier can be curved at any point and in any direction.
