FPS Flood Barriers South Africa

Protect your property with a flood barrier

The Nautilus 200 and 400 flood barrier systems from Flood Protection Solutions Ltd are robust watertight aluminium flood barriers which can be quickly and safely deployed before a flood. Once the flood has passed, they are easily dismantled and stored away, ready for the next event.

The flood barriers are designed, engineered and manufactured in the U.K. They are shipped worldwide and supplied to South Africa.

They can span wide distances and are well suited for hostile environments.

The innovative and patented demountable aluminium flood barriers have been developed for both residential and commercial properties and have been installed on over 2000 properties internationally.

The barriers have been rigorously tested to comply with BSI Standard PAS1188 on allowable leakage rates for demountable and building aperture flood defence barriers.

Using our in-house design team, the barriers can be made to bespoke dimensions.
The barrier system makes use of two permanently-fixed vertical side channels fitted either side of the opening to be protected. They are easy to install.

Large Spans

For large spans, the Nautilus system makes use of pre-installed unobtrusive ground fixtures to allow the Patented Twist and Lock post system (Patent No. 2371068) to be put in place. The aluminium flood boards can then be dropped into position, creating an effective flood barrier for the required span.

Who we work with


The flood barriers are available in either ‘Reveal Fix’ or ‘Face Fix’, depending on the aperture and location.

  • ‘Reveal Fix’ means the rails are fixed in between the reveals (brickwork) of the doorway
  • ‘Face Fix’ means the rails are fixed onto the outer face of the brickwork. (Please allow an extra 200mm over the aperture width)

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.
