Flood Plank System
Floodproofing.com has partnered with Flood Control America to bring these innovative products to the industry.
Invisible Flood Control Wall™
The Invisible Flood Control Wall system is composed of gasketed aluminum planks and steel posts which are quickly mountable and watertight. It is erected when ﬂooding is imminent and then easily disassembled and stored, leaving an unobstructed view of the area with no protrusions.The IFCW has extruded aluminum planks that simply stack between the steel supports with a gasket on the “dry” side. During a ﬂood event, the planks ﬁll with water, adding strength and load capacity to the whole system while helping to protect against impact loads. The IFCW is manufactured and sourced in the United States, has been analyzed and accepted for use by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and is in use on hundreds of installations across the U.S. and Canada.
Intermediate support design means heights of 20'+ are possible.
Base plates minimally visible with no protrusions.
Support posts anchored to reinforced foundation.
Custom corner angles, jogs, step-ups, multi-heights and lengths.
Minimal storage space and an optional pallets and containers available.
Due to its stackable design, the IFCW can be deployed in multi-height increments depending on the situation. If the property is expecting minimal ﬂooding or facing time constraints, a lower-height wall could be installed for that instance.
