Floodstop: the flexible flood barrier system

Introducing the Emtez FloodStop system – a modular flood barrier system for protection from flooding.

The FloodStop flood barrier can be rapidly deployed by one or two persons. Any length of barrier can be assembled by connecting up the modular units with the connection key.

Half the modular units will automatically fill with the rising flood waters, the other half are pre-filled with water ensuring a secure and robust system FloodStop is available in different heights to fit your needs - 0.5m, 0.65m, 0.9m.


The ideal solution for: Perfect for household, business, commercial and utility flood protection. FloodStop can be as temporary and as a permanent solution.


How does the Emtez FloodStop flood barrier work?

Assemblies consist of modular units secured by connection keys. Multi-hubs can be added to make  acute turns or connect to walls. The pre-filled units create a ballast, securing the assembly in place. The modular design allows for a wide range of configurations of flood barriers. Each component is gasket sealed to help prevent unwanted seepage. Self filling units fill up with the flood water and self empty when the flood water precedes, making them light enough to be carried away.

Suitable Terrain:

  • Recommended: Typical hard standings such as roads, pavements, pathways etc. (In an emergency, FloodStop barriers can be used on grass or soil, depending on undulations).
  • Not recommended: for use on gravel.
