Utilities Flood Protection
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.
