GRAND FORKS, North Dakota, December 6, 2018 / PR Newswire / — PS Flood Barriers™, a division of PS Industries™ Incorporated, recently added a new HydroDefense™ Flood Plank Wall System (FP-535) to its line of flood protection barriers. Specifically engineered to protect extra-large openings such as loading docks, storefronts, retaining walls and full-building perimeters, this watertight flood wall system is custom-built using PS Flood Barriers’ proprietary flood planks, also known as stop logs, to address distinct flood vulnerabilities.
Part of the well-respected PS Flood Barriers’ line of products, the HydroDefense Flood Plank Wall System is made of extruded aluminum planks and durable seals that have been fully tested to withstand the advance of floodwaters. The components have been engineered to stack together to form a structural watertight wall, and its T-lock seal mechanically locks in place. Completely customizable, the HydroDefense Flood Plank Wall System utilizes a unique spin down latch that enables the wall to be set up to varying water protection heights.
The HydroDefense Flood Plank Wall System features minimal components and simple installation, helping to prevent mistakes and delays in crisis situations. It utilizes flood planks of symmetrical shape that allows for quick assembly because planks fit either way. When not in use, the HydroDefense Flood Plank Wall System is stored away from the opening.
“When you’ve experienced a catastrophic flood first-hand like we have here in our hometown of Grand Forks, you know how important flood protection can be,” says Terry Smith, PS Flood Barriers National Sales Manager. “Large openings can be especially difficult to protect, which is why we’ve taken all the best parts of our existing flood wall to create something even better. For municipalities, college campuses or companies with large facilities, HydroDefense is the right defense.”
