THE FM APPROVED certification

FM APPROVED Flood control system

We know how important it is to choose the best flood protection system for you or for the organization you represent. This is why when it came time to select a certification for our Water-Gate barrier, we opted for the world renowned FM Approved certification, by FM Approvals.

Tested and FM Approved!

FM Approved, is the most recognized certification in the field of flood control systems. The rigor of the tests made on the components as well as the resistance tests make the FM Approved certification one of the most difficult to obtain. The tests were made in the experimental tank of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (located in Vicksburg, Mississippi U.S.A.) and was established in collaboration with the Association of State Flood Plain Managers (ASFPM), FM Approvals and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These three organizations have united their efforts to implement a national testing and certification program used on products fighting against floods. A number of tests were then performed to examine the speed of deployment, the resilience capacity, the sealing as well as the resistance to waves.

Our commitment to design and manufacture such a high-quality flood protection product enabled us to obtain this prestigious certification. The tests were made using a WL-3950 flood control system.

The Water-Gate barriers are part of the solution

With nearly twenty years of experience, we are more determined than ever to build our leading position and to create even more value for our customers.

System assessment and validation for emergency responders

The Water-Gate flood dam also falls into the FEMA 03OE-03-DAMS from the “U.S. department of Homeland Security”.  Specially in the hazmat Containment/Diversion category. Check out or WT models – specially designed as a underflow / overflow dam – spill containment.
