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.

FloodStop
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.

Applications

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.
