Flood Panel is a solid removable flood barrier system ideal for single or double door applications. It is engineered to withstand hurricane forces and floodwater hydrostatic impacts. Each panel is specifically engineered to the full “designed flood elevation” (height required), and is edged with a rubber gasket. The panels themselves are connected to the floor and sides of each opening or each other by preinstalled anchors and through-bolts.
Panels with a span greater than 4 feet can be supported by either a 45-degree brace or a Mid-Span Support Post®, a proprietary design of Flood Panel, if necessary.
Design heights can range from from 12 inches to over 7 feet. Custom designs are available that include large panels with no braces.

Flood Panel and Post System™
Panel and Post System is a proprietary system designed by Flood Panel LLC. It is similar to the standard Flood Panel, but the panels are mounted on removable vertical posts.
Puddle Panel is designed to be a quick reaction system capable of withstanding low flooding. It is highly effective in keeping water from entering doorways and is quick and easy to install.
Hinged Flood Gate
Hinged Flood Gates are similar to our other barriers except they are permanently installed at the opening location. They can be customized to suit any opening in either a single or double leaf configuration.
Pedestrian Flood Door (Man Door)
Flood Doors look and work like a normal pedestrian door that has been internally reinforced and has a sealing mechanism within the frame providing a leak free seal when closed.
Flood Log is a modular system designed to withstand high velocity water loads and heavy impact forces. It has a proven history as an effective barrier, particularly in hurricane prone locations.
Automatic Flood Barriers
Automatic Flood Barriers are hinged flotation devices which are laid flat within the opening to be defended. They have a proven track record for sites like hospitals and federal buildings.
