IFCS - On-site surveys

By: Irish Flood Control Systems  05/12/2011
Keywords: flood, Flooding

The IFCS site-survey evaluates how most effectively to protect your property against flooding. We consider and identify:

  • The possibility of diverting water before it reaches your walls
  • How best to seal the principal openings
  • Any preparatory work required to improve the imperviousness of walls
  • The state of existing seals around door and window frames
  • The most suitable means of sealing air-bricks and other vents
  • Possible measures to improve flood resilience inside the house

Of vital importance are your own preferences, your access requirements during flood situations and confidence to handle and fit different styles of barrier. We will take these into account in our report, which will include recommendations.

For a community group, IFCS can advise on larger scale projects which can protect groups of houses and larger areas against flooding. These include community alarm systems, permanent works and demountable flood defences.

The fee for an IFCS survey, which includes a comprehensive report, is dependent upon the scale and location of your property. Please call us for details.

IFCS - Surveys

We will liaise with local authorities and planners where necessary to propose a workable, effective solution. We consider historical data, flood risk, points of ingress, ergonomic needs and innovative approaches. A comprehensive survey by IFCS professionals is the best way to assess your flood defence needs.


IFCS - Alternatives to sandbags

Absorbeez water absorbent materials are new and combine advanced technology with experience, to produce high capacity water absorbent bags and sheets that are super handy. Simply unscrew the FloodWater Bag nozzle and drain the polymer-activated water onto the ground, where it will dissipate in a matter of days. The nature of their expansion means FloodBags pack tightly against one another to form a flood wall.

Emergency Kits can be upgraded with: additional, or bespoke door barriers; standalone Ventguards; greater quantities of WallShield, perimeter sealant and Emergency Gel. IFCS has developed a comprehensive Emergency Kit which addresses the need for a "whole house" solution in the most cost effective manner possible.
