The challenge

Flood pro­tec­tion gen­er­al­ly refers to man-made struc­tures and facil­i­ties. In this con­text, flood reten­tion struc­tures and pold­ers are high­ly com­plex struc­tures for retain­ing flood water. They include not just exten­sive earth­works but also tech­ni­cal equipment.

  • for the flood­ing of pold­ers (Fig. 1)
  • for the drain­ing of pold­ers (Fig. 2)
  • for break­ing up rock­slides (Fig. 3)
  • for the reten­tion of allu­vial debris and rub­ble (Fig. 4)
  • for con­stant flow rates drain­ing the FRB (Fig. 5, 7, 9, 10)
  • for brak­ing the flow (Fig. 6)
  • for set­ting over­flow lev­els (Fig. 1)
  • for guid­ing amphib­ians (Fig. 8)

The con­struc­tion and the tech­ni­cal com­po­nents have to be com­pat­i­ble and form a coher­ent unit. The dimen­sion­ing of tech­ni­cal equip­ment has to be future-proofed, safe and durable.

The products

Stein­hardt GmbH has been suc­cess­ful­ly deliv­er­ing flood pro­tec­tion projects for many years. We help with engi­neer­ing and we won´t let you go under. Our tech­ni­cal equip­ment is made from stain­less steel. It is sol­id, durable and oper­ates, wher­ev­er pos­si­ble, with­out elec­tric­i­ty.  This means that instal­la­tion far away from human habi­ta­tion is a viable option. Stein­hardt GmbH designs and man­u­fac­tures facil­i­ties and equip­ment for four main points of focus.

  • Flood­wa­ter retention,
  • in alpine regions,
  • in urban areas,
  • in rur­al areas.
