This Dutch company is a young and innovative company specialized in flood defence.
They offer an innovative flood defence which is the solution to avoid heavy and expensive sandbags. Their flood defence, - mobile dam - can be installed in an easy and quick way by only two people in 30 minutes. The dam is composed of sustainable material which is to be bloated with water from the problem area. This way, dams can be increased up to 50 cm or a barricade is created in just several minutes.
The dam should be rolled out and filled with water using the pump, which is included in the dam. After the dam is full and stable, the flood defender can be closed by screwing the caps on the filling holes.
The dam should be used in the following situations, as tested in accordance with the PAS standard 1188-2:
• Water depth is no more than 50 cm.
• The maximum flow rate of the water, parallel to the flood defender, is 1 m/s at a maximum water depth of 41.6 cm.
• The maximum wave height is 10 cm and the water depth is no more than 40 cm.
Once a flood is under control, the dam can be drained, by using the pump, and rolled up after use. This dam can be used for large-scale projects in an easy transportable package, containing 5 meters of flood defence. Furthermore, this dam is made from EPDM.
EPDM (roofing material) has a number of characteristics, which are essential for water barriers. To begin with, it can resist enormous fluctuations in temperature and it is has 400% elasticity at temperatures between - 35°C up to as much as 120°C. Furthermore, it is resistant to UV and ozone, influences and agents, acids and lyes. Characteristics which guarantees a long product life. Research from the NIBE (Dutch Institute for Constructional Biology and Ecology) has also proven that EPDM has the lowest environmental impact and low environmental costs.
Research has shown that this material underpins the norms of DIN (Deutsche Industrie Norm) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials)and is environmentally friendly as well. Additionally, the company guarantees a lifespan of the dam of over 40 years.
The dam is absolutely easy and safe to use. In times of flooding, adequacy and efficiency in waterlogging is vital as it reduces the risk of a endangering population.
At this moment, the company sells the dam in The Netherlands. However they have the ambition to expand globally.The dam is mainly sold in business to business environment. In the Netherlands, the dam can be purchased through the website; abroad it is sold through importers and distributors. Selling to businesses generates the most profit, whereas individual sales is low.
In order to make sure less homes and lives are destroyed in a flood, they are looking for a business partner who shares their believes and can distribute (distribution services agreement) their dam.
In order to create a sustainable barricade against water this Dutch mobile dam:
• Can roll out for 100 meters in around 60 minutes with only two persons and a water pump,
• Is maintenance-free for 40 years (except for the filler plugs and drainage plugs),
• Is composed of EPDM, a synthetic rubber which is manufactured by polymerization of ethylene, propylene and a di monomer,
• Comes with a ten-year guarantee on welding seams,
• Is tested at TU Delft (Technical University) in the Netherlands with positive results.
This Dutch company is always open for new advantages and ways to improve in flood defences. Meaning that they are looking forward and strive for more perfection in their dam and in a partnership.
The company believes in the potential of the dam and they know the need of a more innovative, time efficient and cost reducing flood defence. Therefore they seek for a partner that can distribute, is financially stable and is familiar in doing business and the market in which this product operates.
Their ideal partner:
• Can purchase a certain amount of square metres per month,
• Has a network in the field of water/ flood defences.
The innovative dam is TÜV certified. Being tested in the worst weather conditions, the dam has proven itself which resulted in the PAS 1188-2:2009.
