The Pedestrian Flood Door is one of the most progressive products in the flood protection market today. This pedestrian door is designed specifically to handle flooding conditions. As long as the door is closed and latched, your facility is protected from flooding.
The Mechanical Room Flood Door is a normal use pedestrian door that also acts as a flood protection door specifically for your mechanical room. Constructed of mild or stainless steel, this door is always in place. When flooding occurs, it works to protect valuable mechanical room infrastructure from costly flooding.

This system is FM Approved for maximum water heights of 3’ high and 10’ wide. Planks are conveniently stored away from your opening when flooding conditions are not present; ensuring your structure is not permanently altered.
