• HydroBeam Protection for Properties
HydroBeam® Flood Protection for Property

Custom-made, watertight protection for buildings and facilities

The Challenge

The climate is changing and large impermeable surfaces are being created by development. Rivers and creeks overflow their banks more frequently, quickly and with more destructive power. Industrial production facilities have to be secured so that flood water does not reach them, but also so that hazardous substances do not reach the waters. Fire-fighting water barriers also prevent the runoff of substances hazardous to water. Protection of properties, assets and the environment has top priority.

The Way 

Houses, factories and commercial buildings can be effectively safeguarded with mobile protection. It is not enough to rely on the old sandbag methods when riverbanks and mobile flood protection units fail. Planning ahead to protect your property with HydroBeam® protection measures will allow faster reaction times. When self-protection measures are maximised the damage and excessive clean-up costs are minimised.

The Solution 

The HydroBeam® mobile flood protection fits to the building structure providing a water-tight seal. Steinhardt GmbH provides custom-designed stop logs, dam panels and dam boards with integrated guide tracks. They are tailor-made to the site to ensure water-tightness. The frames can be permanently covered (windows, doors, gates and driveways). The stop logs, dam panels and dam boards are neatly stored ready for use. Leakage rates are well below the limits set by DIN 19569-4 with the Steinhardt HydroBeam® sealing system. You define your degree of protection.
