Ark Flood Defence Network flood door system

Ark Flood Defence Network has developed an innovative flood door system which has achieved the essential ‘Zero’ leakage score in the PAS1188:1 2014 test for flood defence products using REHAU TOTAL70 outer frame profile.

The Ark Flood Defence door uses a high specification multi-point locking mechanism which creates a tight compression seal between the door sash and the frame, making it more watertight than a standard door – even when faced with water at a height of up to 600mm.

REHAU TOTAL70 outer frame profile

Door has the look of a conventional panel door but with the added security of flood protection.

  • available in a wide range of designs and colours
  • choice of different panel and glazing options 

Phil Woodhead, a Director at Ark Flood Defence

:  “As we have seen in recent years, flooding is a year round risk in the UK now.  Homeowners who fear that their properties are at risk are looking for solutions which can give them protection and peace of mind. Our new flood doors in a REHAU outer frame offer the security and reassurance they require and, as a result, present a really great new sales opportunity for trade installers.”

Ark Flood Defence supplies trade and commercial customers and offers trade customers the opportunity to become Network Partners.
