Elemental Flood Barrier

Efficient design for Elemental Flood Protection.

The Elemental is designed with practicality in mind, catering to dam heights of 0.41m and 0.61m. Flash floods can be disruptive, but with the Elemental's two-part metal design, setting up lengthy flood barriers becomes straightforward and timely. For storage concerns, it's worth noting that up to 1 km of the Elemental can fit neatly into a 20 ft container.

Elemental Flood Barrier: AdvancedFlood Protectionwith Simplicityat its Core

Elemental is meticulously crafted to offer robust protection against floodwaters rising up to 61 cm. It showcases a streamlined design comprising just two components: a durable metal support and a metal sheet. Unlike its counterpart in the Geodesign product series, there's no need to unfold supports; simply position them.

This efficient design facilitates rapid installation over extended lengths, ensuring timely flood prevention. Beyond merely acting as a barrier against rising water, Elemental is adept at managing the rush of water during events like flash floods – a common occurrence in urban areas due to water accumulation on streets.

But the utility of Elemental doesn't stop at flood protection. Its versatile design allows for the creation of reservoirs for various liquids. Owing to its adaptive nature, it can be molded into diverse shapes and sizes for temporary containment needs. Furthermore, Elemental promises convenience in storage: 50 meters of the system occupies just 1 m^2, and a 1km barrier can be neatly packed into a standard 20 ft container.
