Side-Deployed Flex-Wall®

What is the Side-Deployed Flex-Wall®?

Flex-Wall® is a high strength flexible wall that can be deployed rapidly for flood protection of buildings, equipment, doorways, power stations, and other critical infrastructure. It is constructed from textile based materials and metal posts that reside in a small container and are manually deployed. The Flex-Wall® can be long to surround buildings or short to close-off doorways. The design is scalable to accommodate a range of water heights and layouts.

How it Works

The Flex-Wall® and all its components are stored in a covered trench at the point-of-use. Deployment is achieved by removing the trench container cover, placing the support posts into their holders, and then easily securing the fabric wall to the posts. Smaller walls are easily deployed by a single person.

Product Attributes:

  • All components are stored at its point-of-use (no scrambling for parts in an emergency)
  • Small volume container – unobtrusive & low visual impact
  • Design is scalable to water levels from Riverine to Hurricane flooding with wave impact
  • Deploy/retract small walls in minutes by a single person with minimal training
  • Can have doorways in walls that remain open until the last minute
  • Can deploy in high winds
  • Rugged construction and damping characteristics withstand debris impact
  • Can adapt to uneven ground
  • Can have corners
  • Can seal against existing facades without building modification


  • Open tamperproof covers
  • Deploy posts if wall is long (lift and place into receivers)
  • Raise the flexible wall and hook on posts
  • Capture ends of wall and compress gaskets
  • Reverse procedure to stow the system
