Lakeside were pleased to have an opportunity to showcase the watertight Lakeside Flood Barrier in action.
The flood barrier was installed to the Northern Ireland Rivers Agency test tank facility to demonstrate its effectiveness, both in terms of its watertight sealing mechanism and ability to be easily deployed within seconds in the event of a flood alert.
Lakeside Operatives demonstrated how easily and quickly the barriers can be slotted into the pre-installed, watertight frame within seconds.
The test also proved the system to work with zero leakage.
Lakeside Flood Solutions are working with the NI Rivers Agency as part of the Homeowner Flood Protection Grant Scheme, a government scheme which is designed to encourage residential homeowners who have been flooded before and/or are lockated within known flood prone areas, to adopt flood resistant measures.
