This high quality, removable barrier answers pleas from builders and homeowners for help in protecting doors, windows and building contents from water ingress in flood-prone areas. When water from heavy rains accumulates, the Flood Barrier Shield effectively blocks up to three feet or more of flood waters from permeating door openings.

The marine grade aluminum shield requires no tools for insertion into pre-mounted vertical channels attached to either the door frame or adjacent walls. This flood barrier complies with FEMA and FIA Guidelines (See Note below*)

When installing, push down on top of plate to ensure compression of rubber strip at the bottom of the plate and tighten screws. For taller plates this may require more than one person to install properly. Barrier has a convenient cut-out grip handle for simple maneuvering and installation (**see note below).

The key to the shield's impermeability is the use of a high quality closed cell sponge (CCS) neoprene rubber, which ensures a water-tight seal. The rubber lines the aluminum channel brackets and the bottom of the shield. The neoprene also compensates for gaps at the threshold.

Unless installed on smooth, straight surface, we highly recommend installing a saddle on the floor upon which the bottom of the flood shield will seal onto. This includes concrete surfaces as concrete is porous and can allow water to seep in under the seal. We recommend the Z663 Saddle (Pictured in the side profile of the "Product Specs" tab) although any flat utility saddle will get the job done.
