As we watched in horror the flooding from Hurricane Irma devastate parts of Florida, after causing more than $10bn (£7.6bn) in damage across the Caribbean, a figure which is still rising, we must look at what we can do to protect our infrastructure, both private and commercial from such horrors.
A 2012 BBC report stated that more than five and a half million properties in England and Wales alone were deemed to be at risk from flooding and that you can make permanent changes to reduce flooding and making these alterations can reduce the time and cost of recovering from flooding but can it look decorative?
Here, at CPM we believe it can, as our Redi-Rock™ team has developed a flood wall that is doubled sided, with three aesthetically pleasing finishes, so looks great whichever side of the wall you are on and can be installed where space is scarce.
If you need a wall to look great when the flood water has receded as well as offering protection against flooding, then look no further, as our Redi-Rock™ flood walling is what you need.
So how does it work?
The flood walls are laid on a reinforced concrete strip foundation with starter bars into the hollow core. Wall reinforcement is then fixed as the blocks are laid. Once the wall has been completed, the core is filled with concrete to form the watertight barrier, protecting the surrounding areas from the flood water.
So what next?
