Devon Flood Protection & Prevention

Geodesign Barriers of Exeter, Devon offer a simple and effective solution to flooding.  Geodesign Barriers can look back on 10 years of successful flood fights since the start of 1995. Used widely throughtout Europe to great effect, it is designed to be used where more permanent defences are not economically viable or aesthetically pleasing.  Built specifically to follow any shift in angle and level, it offers a flexible alternative for any areas flood protection scheme.

Geodesign Barriers has a simple and robust design consisting of strong supports, made of galvanised high quality steel. Add aluminium sheets and cover the 45 degree angled barrier with reinforced plastic membrane. Due to the angle, the forces from the water make the barrier completely self-anchoring. No tools or ground work preparation needed - suitable for any ground.

This simple but effective technique is suitable for private properties as well as businesses or larger residential areas. The barrier can be erected in water if needed. Pumps are required to take care of any seepage from behind the barrier and any drains inside the barrier must be blocked to avoid water from coming through.

'The rule has been changed forever.  The old consesus that nothing can be done has been replaced by a knowledge that something can be done'
