Utilities Flood Protection

Barrier Force - Utilities Flood Protection photo

In the event of significant weather events (tropical storms, northeasters, inland flooding), protecting critical utilities is a major concern. Barrier Force™ has successfully protected gas and electric substations, distribution centers, and generation facilities from the risk of rising floodwater and coastal storm threats, hardening these facilities to protect against weather events.

Engineered using four- or six-foot barriers, the Barrier Force™ utilities flood protection system works in conjunction with a specialized Barrier Force™ rapid protection gate, which was designed to give utilities easy access to the protected site for regular operations and rapid closure upon the risk or threat of flooding.
