Many businesses need to take flood defence measures as flooding is becoming an increasingly problematic issue, with essential assets; such as sub-stations, external plant and machinery; needing protection from the damage water can cause. For sites that store oil and other hazardous materials within these assets, apart from water getting in, there’s also the risk of these substances getting out, causing pollution to the surrounding environment and leaving businesses open to fines.
Our newly patented flood defence system, JBAR®, provides a permanent solution to stopping flood water in its tracks and can help prevent spills from entering surrounding ground and watercourses.
About JBAR® flood defence
JBAR® is a unique, patented, flood defence system designed to protect key assets, such as utility compounds, sub-stations, external plant and associated structures. Developed initially to deal with oil containment, JBAR®, featuring an integrated sump, is a dual purpose product, which can retain and/or withstand fluids from either side.
Highly flexible, JBAR® is available in various, lengths, heights and shape configurations, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Specification is based on our Flood Risk Assessment, a process which will determine flood risk now and up to 60 years in the future.
JBAR® flood defence benefits:
- JBAR® can be easily modified on-site to suit unforeseen conditions
- JBAR® is a modular system that can be adapted in length and heights
- JBAR® is fabricated from non-conductive material in short lengths, making it ideal for the protection of sub-statins and other electrical installations
- JBAR® can be used for both flood defence and spill containment
Adler & Allan’s expert team will install JBAR®, designed to fix to a concrete slab or masonry curb (but can work without a solid base where required), as well as completing any other civil engineering works required on-site, such as trench excavation.
To provide complete protection, JBAR® flood defences can be used in conjunction with Adler & Allan’s protective coatings and linings delivering a long-term solution to hazardous spill containment.
Our polyurea spray lining is the toughest and most durable protective coating available, providing an effective way of preventing deterioration and extending the life of a range of structures by forming a waterproof and chemical barrier.
