Quick, light and economical

The EUR101 Steel barrier is the latest member of the Geodesign Barriers’ product range. Designed to meet the needs of large scale flooding operations. The system consists of a metal support, a metal sheet and a plastic membrane. The metal supports are held together by the steel sheet that is locked onto the support. This makes the system quicker, lighter and more economical than those of its competitors.

How it works

The barrier is self anchoring due to its angle and the ground friction, helped by the metal collars underneath the bottom beam. The more acute angle of the EUR101 enhances the anchoring force and makes the EUR101 one of the most firmly anchored systems on the market.

Quick to deploy. Low storage volume.

The EUR101 flood defence system consists of only five different parts. This makes it easy and quick to set up. 15 persons can easily deploy 1000 m in one hour. The simplicity of the construction also reduces the storage volume. 1000 m of EUR101 Steel barrier can be stored in 60m3.

Manufactured in high strength quality steel

The EUR101 is made of new, high strength low alloy steel for cold forming, produced by SSAB. The steel 420LADZ275, gets its high strength from the addition of very small quantities of alloying elements, making it twice as strong as standard steel.

EUR101 Test – Inspecta report

Inspecta is the leading provider of inspection, testing, certification and technical consultancy services in Northern Europe. Geodesign contracted Inspecta to verify a test of the new EUR101 Steel barrier. The purpose was to see if the barrier could withstand the pressure of extreme flooding scenarios. Inspecta’s report concluded that the EUR101 Steel barrier is well suited for the most extreme flooding conditions and that overtopping or moving water does not affect the stability of EUR101 Steel Barrier.

The test was carried out on 28 September, 2015 in Västervik, Sweden.
