The Hydro-Brake® Flood flow control provides consistent, reliable large-scale flood protection at the watercourse level, preventing costly damage and disruption to people, businesses and essential infrastructure and services.

Capable of managing flows of up to 11,500 l/s, the Hydro-Brake® Flood enables engineers and local authorities to design site-specific flood alleviation that meets today’s requirements, while also future-proofing against increasing flood risks caused by climate change.

Benefits

Design schemes to protect homes, businesses and infrastructure from flood damage
Enables engineers to deliver large-scale flood protection projects at the watercourse level, effectively managing flood waters and preventing floods from reaching homes, business and critical downstream infrastructure such as roads and railways.

Design site-specific flood protection
Designed according to the specific requirements of the site, ensuring that each system is precision-engineered to deliver exactly the right level of flood protection. Hydro International works with clients to understand their requirements and to develop a flow control to provide precisely the level of protection required.

Future-proof flood alleviation
May be designed to allow for future variances in fluvial flows, meaning that riverine flood alleviation systems can be designed to meet future flood prevention requirements. During the design phase Hydro International can incorporate a facility for future adjustment to allow for climate change without necessitating new engineering or additional future construction works.

Low-maintenance flood prevention
With no moving parts and no power requirement, the Hydro-Brake® Flood flow control is designed to ensure consistent, reliable operation with minimal maintenance.

Often installed in remote locations, therefore periodic inspections are recommended to ensure that the system has not been compromised in any way.
