Mobile flooding protection
FloodStop, the mobile flooding protection system for your home. Install it yourself and protect yourself from flooding, simply and safely.
FloodStop is an innovative, inflatable protective cushion made of high-tech material that seals windows and doors watertight and can withstand water levels of up to two meters. In the event of a flood, it can be installed in building opening embrasures easily and without any structural modifications. The special cushion can be used not only to seal doors and windows, it also offers ideal flooding protection for historic buildings with round or pointed arches.
A proven, internationally patented, high-quality Swiss product for private flooding protection that reliably seals off building openings of all kinds and shapes (partial protection possible). The perfect property protection against flooding.
FloodStop is an air-filled protective cushion that is manufactured individually for every building opening that needs to be sealed shut. It adapts to front doors, cellar doors, windows, garage doors, air shafts, or other openings, making it an ideal form of property protection against flooding. In the case of a flooding emergency, FloodStop can be inserted into building openings in just a few easy steps, and then filled with air to a maximum pressure of 0.8 bar. The air pressure firmly presses the cushion into the embrasures and creates a stable sealing effect. FloodStop protects against floods with a water level of up to 2.20 meters for at least 200 hours, which is more than a full week. If carefully maintained and stored, the cushions can be used over and over again.
Water intrusion, for example in cellars, can quickly cause damage totaling up to CHF 35,000
FLOODSTOP PRICE EXAMPLE
|1 × front door (partial protection)||CHF||950|
|1 × front door (full protection)||CHF||1’630|

If properly stored and maintained, the protective cushions can be used time and again and are amortized in a short time.
Front door / window
In the parterre area, it is usually not necessary to protect the doors and windows at full height if, according to all probability and experience, the flood does not expect a (catastrophic) level of more than 2 m. Here a partial protection is sufficient.
A partial protection is often sufficient
For partial protection, a terminated U-profile closes the open upper side of the FloodStop. The necessary stability upwards ensures lateral angles or vertical supports between the profile and the upper reveal. This protection also does not require any structural changes to the house.
Building openings below ground levels (basement windows, shafts and casemates) are the most vulnerable weak spots in a house during flooding. Here the FloodStop full protection is used, that means a dimensionally accurate protective pillow that closes the entire opening and prevents the entry of water and sludge.
Without protection it becomes expensive
A water damage in the basement caused rapid damages in immense amounts, according to the insurances in median values between EUR 15,000 and 35,000.
In addition the work of unpleasant and difficult elimination of mud masses. You do not have to do this if you make FloodStop your ally.
Cellar exit, cellar door
Here, the problem is comparable with the cellar window with the only difference that the opening is larger. A FloodStop over the entire door opening protects against water penetration up to a level of 2.20 m.
The immense water pressure, especially at high levels, is largely absorbed into the building walls by means of stable struts, which are fed into the FloodStop protective cushions, thus securing the seat of the cushions in the reveals. These struts also provide protection against possible flotsam.
Workshop, office, warehouse
Especially in commercial areas, flood damage is often catastrophic: destroyed goods and business records, rotten crude products, semi-finished and finished products and last but not least production or even work stoppages with the consequence of unfulfillable orders and the possible loss of important customers. Such damage can quickly take on a life-threatening extent and many insurance companies do not make a substitution for such elementary damage. The use of FloodStop can counteract this.
Whether in private or public property: buildings protected as historic buildings must not be altered or disfigured, not even by flutors or devices for absorbing dams. Here is the solution: FloodStop, because it does not require a structural change. After the flood the building looks as before: unchanged, not disfigured and following the legal requirements. We would be pleased to advise you individually and professionally.
FloodStop has gained extensive experience from many protected municipal buildings in Switzerland. Ask for a non-binding consultation. The investment sum is comparatively low and the savings are huge and this without structural changes!
Industry / Trade
Effective protection against flooding is indispensable in the industrial and commercial sectors. FloodStop also protects special buildings and surfaces individually and situation-related. Ask for our advice.
Cost / benefit
The acquisition costs for flood protection with FloodStop are deductible operating expenses. The cost / benefit ratio speaks for itself and acquisition subsidies through property insurers are possible. Please contact us.
Our quality standards ensure that your property is effectively protected against floods.
The pressure absorption capacity and the watertightness of each individual FloodStop is tested at the end of the production process in order to guarantee its functionality. Our production processes are subject to ongoing process control. We understand quality to mean high-quality products based on state-of-the-art technology together with customer-oriented service.
FloodStop is an internationally patented, high-quality Swiss product for flooding protection. It has been certified by the Hamburg University of Technology, the leading European university when it comes to flood protection and flood research, (Department Chair Prof. Dr. Ing. Erik Pasche) after thorough, rigorous practical tests without constraints.
FloodStop is made of extremely tear-resistant, polyurethane-coated double-wall textile, which is both airtight and watertight. Inside of the cushion, 28,000 nylon threads per square meter maintain its shape and stability. The guaranteed service life of the cushion after being inflated once is at least 200 hours. FloodStop protective cushions can be used over and over again for many years. A one-time purchase – long-term protection.
