Geodesign barriers: the best protection against floods
Geodesign barriers have been designed for flood relief operations in the most challenging conditions imaginable. Since 1995, a growing number of flood engineers, emergency managers, urban planners and military personnel have contributed to the improvement of the Geodesign barriers, making them the products they are today, i.e., effective and efficient against floods. The use of Geodesign barriers does not require sand, water, pre-installation or tools.
In case of flooding, a quick response with Geodesign flood barriers and pumps is crucial to ensure effective protection against water damage. Critical infrastructure, such as power substations, wastewater treatment plans, hospitals, and major roads and highways, need priority flood protection to keep them functioning. Using efficient flood pumps and Geodesign flood barriers to provide reliable protection is therefore a good way to avoid major disasters.
