Floodlock Water Activated Door Seal Booster Strips 3 x 60cm Pack of 3

Product Code: 33819

Floodlock strips absorb liquid and swell to seal out floodwater. An effective, lightweight and easy to use alternative to sandbags. Trap 3cm of the strips between door and frame with the rest facing out. Once wet with water from floods, sewage or tap, the exposed strip rapidly expands into a waterproof gel-filled sealer. Flood water pressure pushes this into gaps around the door to seal it fully. Remains effective even when punctured by multi point locks until the flood water drains away or the door is opened. Use more strips up the side of the door to protect against deeper floods. Patented 2mm cloth absorbs and locks in up to 2Ltr of water. 5 year shelf life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Alternative to Sandbags Floodlock Door Protection Strips worked a treat in recent flash floods when we could not get sandbags. It did not stop the water coming in through air bricks or the toilet but it kept surface water out doors, the water level in the home was a few inches lower than up the doors. The multilever lock bolts on our UPVC doors cut through the strips when I locked the door. Much better than sandbags I think, certainly much lighter!. Hope not to have to use them again but will keep a couple of packs near our family first aid kit and put them in the door as soon as the Environment Agency warns us of any possible floods. 24 Feb 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by not for upvc doors got these after a recent flood alert. they are recommended on flood forums but do not seem to be suitable for upvc doors as they would block the lower locking mechanism - hence they would only protect the bottom 6 inches in a flood. They also affect the overall seal on upvc doors when the door is shut as they push the door away from the frame. Have not yet had opportunity to test their effectiveness - thankfully! Probably work well on other kinds of doors 6 Feb 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great product I recently bought a pack of these strip from a retailer and they are great, if you have a need to quickly defend a door, and don't want to go to the expense of building a sandbag wall or use one of the many alternative sandbags, these are great and you can keep it in a drawer. 9 Apr 2013
