Deploys and retracts in minutes with minimal people and training with no heavy equipment. Businesses get to stay open longer and recover faster.
Eliminates the need for off-site storage and fees. All parts and equipment are stored at the point-of-protection for maximum efficiency in an emergency.
Can be sized to fit any opening or threat. Designs are scalable to water levels from riverine to hurricane flooding with wave impact.
Layered Kevlar® structural webbing with coated fabric water retention layer. The textile based materials can adapt to uneven ground, have corners, seal against existing facades without building modification, and allow for maximum debris impact.
Our Flood Protection products protect your critical assets while providing the flexibility to keep the property open until the last possible moment before an event occurs, and provide the fastest recovery time.
Due to climate change, storm intensity has increased thus resulting in rising sea levels, threatening critical infrastructure and high-value real-estate. As these effects increase in magnitude over time flood mitigation equipment will be required to prevent damage to critical infrastructure including commercial buildings, transit systems, and utilities. Smart Vent + ILC Dover has a unique line of dry flood protection products that have been developed to offer significant advantages over other systems.
Our solutions are based on flexible materials (coated fabrics, webbings, textiles), combined with metal and composite materials. The use of flexible materials enables protective devices that can be packed into very small volumes and stored at their point of use (as with roll-up security doors or automotive airbags). This in turn facilitates extremely rapid response to deploy protection in an emergency. Our technology can also be tailored to meet special applications and our of staff Engineers & Certified Floodplain Managers can help you select the right solution for your needs.
Unlike stop log type rigid solutions, our Stored at the Point-of-Use Flex-Wall® and Flex-Gate® systems are quickly deployable and protect against flood levels from a few feet to over 30 feet. Smart Vent + ILC Dover flood barrier systems are being installed by New York City Transit (NYCT) and a Major Electrical Utility to address subway and power generation facility flood protection needs.
