Flood Protection Solutions has an enviable reputation and has grown into one of the UK’s leading flood companies offering both great products and great advice.
Following flooding of our Director’s home in 2007, he sought a solution to the problem and found the Water-Gate barrier, manufactured in Canada. The Water-Gate was purchased and sat unused for 5 years until 2012 when the village was again hit by flooding. This time the Water-Gate was deployed and saved our Director’s home as it has all subsequent occasions, from this Flood Protection Solutions was born.
The Water-Gate barrier is highly innovative and easily deployed, offering one of the fastest deployment of flood defences available.
The Water-Gate barrier is incredibly versatile and can be used for flood control, water diversion, pollution control and in-water works. Access to emergency vehicles and other barriers is not compromised as the barrier can be driven over. The Water-Gate can be shaped around corners and on uneven surfaces, offering flexible protection, and can be joined to create and length.
Our top consultants now conduct research with organisations such as Cranfield University and work across several environmental fields. We offer a range of products and services, including: flood risk assessments, flood consultancy, research, along with water pumps, metal barriers and sorbent booms.

"After 4 floods in 16 years, the Water-Gate barrier was used in November and December 2012. The relief when it prevented what would have been a 5th and 6th flood was enormous. The best part is the piece of mind that follows." - Pam, Nottinghamshire
