The FDS-2 can be finished in wide range of flat or mottled colours and will interlock both vertically and horizontally and built as vertical or brick courses

FLOOD DEFENCE FOR GOVERNMENTS


National and centralised flood response centres are increasingly the norm as civic authorities stuggle to cope with both the financial impact of flooding, and scale of defence resources required. Add to that the significant added costs of cleaning up from and disposing of hundreds of tons of contaminated biohazard sandbag, and it's no wonder that deployable, recoverable and reusable defences are the preferred option.

Octagon's FDS-2 flood defence block, a self-interlocking modular and reusable flood defence, provides such a resource - perfect for regional or strategic stockpiles from where it can be quickly deployed by truck, ISO container, or skylift to at-risk locations.

Most of us are familiar with using a child's building brick, making the construction of flood defence walls with the FDS-2 a simple process that can be achieved utilising local

population resources under minimal supervision. This allows trained flood response teams to erect defences faster and cover much wider areas.

The FDS-2 is ideally suited to defending urban environments - as part of outer perimeter defences - to protect a complete central business district or town centre, or, as a final defence wall around critical infrastructure or command and control centres. The versatility and ease of use of this flood defence block cannot be overstated.

If that wasn't enough, the FDS-2 has two more significant advantages - it does not absorb or degrade in flood water so it can be recovered, cleaned down and stored ready for re-use, PLUS it is made from 100% recycled car tyres (30 car tyres go into each flood defence block), thereby reducing an otherwise damaging environmental hazard.

As well as the standard 'tyre black' finish the FDS-2 is available in a wide range of colours and patterns if required, and when not being deployed for floods can also be
The versatile FDS-2 can be configured in many ways to avoid street furniture, pedestrian islands and other urban challenges

used for general impact protection walls, temporary kerbs, roadblocks, and bundings.

Because our blocks are made from recycled vehicle tyres, the fulfillment of overseas government contracts may also be possible using Manufacture Under License arrangements.  This may provide the additional benefit of being able to qualify for and utilise set-aside environmental funding, and the reduction of local tyre mountains. We offer purchase, lease and rental options.

Our design engineers are very experienced in creating tailored solutions for specific problems and can usually turn around a solution in days rather than months - so even if the outstanding FDS-2 is not the answer to your problem please get in touch and tell us about your flood defence problem - we thive on challenges!
