It is essential that people understand the risks that flooding poses to property and personal safety and that they are well informed against any future risk of flooding.
Flood schemes have protected an extra 177,000 properties in the last four years, another £2.3 billion being spent over the next six years to reduce the flood risk to 300,000 more properties.
This information is taken directly from the Environment Agency’s ‘Flood Aware’ campaign dated 4th November 2015.
At MACO our R&D department in Austria along with our Innovation team in the UK have been collating data and facts for some time on the UK’s flood risk and have used the evidence as a catalyst to develop a secure and completely weathertight solution for commercial and residential properties.
Taking elements from our existing Multi Matic tilt turn system and incorporating it with the CTS Combined door lock we have been able to produce a highly effective system offering additional perimeter locking around the threshold and hinge side of the door ensuring water egress is prevented.
Successfully tested to PAS1188-1:2014 Flood protection products and Building aperture products.
The really great benefit of the flood door solution from MACO is in its use of existing product lines meaning anyone who is already using MACO CTS combined door locks and Multi Matic tilt turn can offer this solution from stock.
The patented i.S Security mushrooms used hold the perimeter firmly in place; however that does not mean that the door is now too stiff to activate. In fact completely the opposite making this also an ideal offering for the less abled and elderly with perhaps a weaker hand grip.
