Floods and leaks can have devastating effects on homes and offices. So recently at Spill Control Centre we have added products that will help with combatting these problems.
Every year in the UK, 5 million people are at risk of flooding whether that be from surface water flooding or flooding caused by waterways, such as rivers overflowing. To combat this people use sandbags as a first line of defence which can help up to a certain point.
As an alternative, at Spill Control Centre, we have launched the OSMO flood barrier, which is available in 2 sizes: 1.5m x 210mm and 3.0m x 210mm. OSMO flood barriers are made with non-toxic and non-hazardous materials which are 50% reclaimed. They have excellent absorbency and can be stacked just like sandbags and even moulded around obstacles, such as ledges and doors. They are the ideal product for the entrance to a home or business. When in place they inflate within minutes of coming in to contact with water. When fully inflated they will create a strong, watertight and leakproof barrier. See the video below on how they work.
The other half of our new range is leak protection equipment and we have some great products for dealing with leaky roofs and pipes.
We have Roof Drip Diverters available in 6 sizes, with 3 of these sizes provided as a kit containing all you need to get up and running straight away. Roof drip diverters are made with yellow lightweight vinyl coated fabric. They are easy to install to ceilings with rubber straps or bungee cords, which need to be bought separately if you aren’t buying a kit.
When attached to the ceiling you can attach a 7.6m drainage hose (purchased separately unless buying a kit) and divert any leak from your roof down the hose to a nearby drainage system. As well as diverting drips and leaks it also keeps your office or home safe from slip hazards and protects equipment and belongings from damage.
We also have products that wrap around pipes which are leaking oil, chemicals and gases. We have the Quick Wrap Pipe Repair Bandage which is available in 4 sizes and doesn’t need any mixing or measuring, just place in water for 10 seconds and within 10 minutes it will have set.
The Strap it Leak Stopper will seal leaks under pressure, which avoids the need for a system shutdown. It’s easily secured with Velcro and can be used multiple times!
