Khalifa Hospital

Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi is the main tertiary care hospital in the United Arab Emirates, with a 560-bed capacity that is fully occupied most of the time.

Recently, was consulted on multiple flood solutions to protect a key entrance to the facility. The hospital ultimately chose FloodBreak Automatic Floodgates: a passive solution that lifts automatically without electricity or power, making it an ideal solution for critical facilities. A supplemental hydraulic system also allowed the client to deploy the barrier ahead of an oncoming flooding event. The hospital was successfully protected from 2 feet of water, allowing this essential facility to continue operations for the community during the flood.
