FLOOD DEFENCE BLOCK SYSTEM FDS-2

Developed to reduce environmental damage by using 100% recycled vehicle tyres, the FDS-2 is the ideal fast deploy flood defence system to supplement your permanent water defences.  Unlike sandbags the FDS-2 can be re-used time and again.

The ingenious self-interlocking design allows the block to be quickly deployed, assembled, diassembled, or reconfigured without specialist knowledge, or additional materials, and the natural flexibility allows for slight wall curvature if required.

The FDS-2 has many advantages over sandbag walls, requiring no fill materials it can deployed without delay. Made of dense polymer-binded rubber it is impervious to flood water so here is no toxic biohazard sandbag waste to dispose of afterwards.

The blocks join together easily like a child's building bricks, producing a virtually seamless fit. Disassembly (always wear PPE) is just as easy and the blocks can be washed down, and stored outside or inside, ready for the next emergency.

The modular design makes this an ideal defence material for most buildings and structures.  From whole perimeter walls to selective defence of access points, sensitive locations, and weak spots.

The FDS-2 is available to order in any colour or pattern to blend in with surroundings. It is fire safe, durable and very difficult to damage and has excellent thermal insulation qualities too. Defences can also be constructed double or even triple skinned with the addition of lateral strengthening.

Not only are we reducing UK vehicle tyre mountains, but we are happy to discuss Manufacture Under License options for governments, to reduce local tyre mountains - which may also allow the utilisation of set-aside environmental funding

Our design/engineer process is lean so we can respond quickly and cost efficiently to custom flood defence requirements - please contact us to discuss your specific flood problem and we will be happy to assist and advise.
