The Free-standing Flood Control Barrier
ShieldPRO 3TX & 5TX, the crown jewel of the series, is a free-standing flood control barrier, catered for rapid response applications to deal with flash floods along roads and highways, designed for easy assembly on-site, even while flood waters are flowing.
PlaxiGUARD ShieldPRO has significant advantages over existing designs of free-standing flood barriers in the market; it is significantly cheaper per barrier unit, and of comparable weight, whose stackability allows for far easier transportation and storage. In addition, other flood barriers often require a connector piece or clamp to effectively connect the individual barrier units, whereas the ShieldPRO’s water-tight interlocking design sidesteps this issue altogether, ensuring no leakage past the barrier wall, with no external tool being needed. Of particular use is how if parallel rows of ShieldPRO are employed, they can form a makeshift water channel to redirect flood water from the affected area.
In terms of design validity, ShieldPRO has undergone displacement, pressure load, and hydrostatic tests to ascertain the stability and durability of the design, with great results. In addition, its award-winning design alongside extensive patents that cover 9 countries, makes the PlaxiGUARD ShieldPRO model an already viable product, ready for commercial use.
