Stop high floods with one push on the button! Up to 10 meters high quay wall
This Block-It wall comes up with one push on the button. The whole area behind is protected against high floods. This concrete wall is provided with an intelligent independent operating system.
Every knows the life expectancy of high tech concrete substance is more than 100 years! And … this wall is also suitable in areas with flood threats as ports and along coastlines.
Do you want 1 meter high? Fine. If the area needs 5 or even 10 meters high, that’s no problem. This wall is perfect for river sites in urban areas. And when it’s down: it’s fully integrated in the road.
The Block-iT wall is a permanently mounted, computer-controlled, fully automatic temporary water barrier of high strength concrete to solve recurrent flooding in a sustainable manner by placing a concrete floor on the housing with a built-in hydraulic height-adjustable wall. And when it’s down and integrated in the streets, cars and trucks can drive over it without any problem.
Fail prove – alternative operating systems
Even if the electricity fails, Block-It is provided with 3 alternative ways to let go the wall upwards or downwards.
Climate change and rising sea levels require different damming techniques. Not only for the public space, but also for providing water resistance to buildings and risk running underground facilities (subway, tunnel, basement, utilities, etc.). This wall protects your area against all flooding.
It is a permanently mounted, computer controlled, fully automatic temporary water barrier made of high strength concrete to solve recurrent flooding in a sustainable manner. One into the ground mounted concrete house with built in hydraulically in height adjustable walls. Available in linkable modules of variable lengths up to 130 meters and 10 meters high in one piece.
The hydraulic system is secured by three accumulators for safe operation during power outages. Including a separate mechanical system which can be operated by hand safe operation during power and hydraulic outages and accumulator failure. Frostbite is prevented, however, in polar regions a de-icing system used. Closing functioning with self-cleaning system and therefore silt and (fine) sand no chance, no
matter above or below water. Operation can be carried out by a pulse signal, given by a number of signal generators of several varieties.
