Glass Flood Barriers

Glass Flood BarriersMAG4 Provides robust watertight glass flood barriers that enhance the visual appeal of the area. MAG4 flood barriers utilise a combination of specially designed high strength structural glass and narrow profile frames that are designed to withstand the static and impact loads of the specific location in question. It is specially designed to be watertight and impact resistant. Please change to say ‘Our flood barrier glazing allows for flood protection heights up to 2.5 metres high, and each individual glass panel can be up to 3 metres wide.

The result is a virtually clear glass barrier with no loss of visual amenity that can be used as a direct first line flood defence without the need for sacrificial panels or additional deflection devices or even external buffers.

Our glass barriers can be used as individual viewing panels incorporated into other types of flood defences, or as a complete free standing barrier spanning any length and following virtually any geographical contour.

Tamper proof and concealed fixings are used throughout the system to reduce the possibility of vandalism. Safety factors have been built into all water pressure calculations and the unique design to avoid the possibility of catastrophic system failure.

It meets and exceeds the protection characteristics of both the more common solid aluminium flood barriers and the few glass barriers currently available.
