HydroDefense® Flood Plank™
HydroDefense® Flood Planks™ provide flood protection in vertical increments of six inches. They are used by stacking planks on top of one another to build a watertight barrier in front of your opening. These lift out flood planks are available in various horizontal lengths to meet your opening requirements, acting as stop logs that keep flood waters at bay. They’re ideal for protecting walk doors, retaining walls, driveways and storefronts. This product is designed and tested to meet ANSI 2510 and FM 2510 approval standards.
HydroDefense Flood Planks are stored away from your opening, making them the perfect solution when you need protection in place only at the time of flooding. To keep your HydroDefense Flood Plank XL long lasting and well-organized, check out our HydroDefense® Storage Solutions.

There is a gasket on the bottom of the bottom plank that seals down to an embedded sill (in the concrete). Though it is always recommended, if conditions are ideal with a completely flat and smooth surface to seal to with no variations, joints or cracks, then the sill may be omitted.
