The AquaWand (englisch)
AquaWand is the latest development in mobile flood protection
When not in use it is kept on site in a concrete channel, which is part of the sidewalk, sea-wall or the like. When needed, it is erected in an extremely short time, to ne folded back into the channel, after the flood is over.
The pre-installed mobile AquaWand120 flood protection wall has been tested and approved at the water laboratory of TUHH (TuTech Zentrum für Klimafolgenforschung KLIFF / Climate Impact Research Centre). The research results are:
- Rigged and ready for use in a few minutes, with minimum personnel
- AquaWand successfully stands all impact tests
- Despite the high impact load, AquaWand did not fail
- Leak tests proved the leak rate to be negligible
- No material fatigue after 100 rig cycles
AquaWand – New Economic Efficiency
- No logistics costs
- No storge costs
- Low personnel costs
- Enhanced commercial efficiency through the added drainage effect
Final analysis: efficiently priced with almost no subsequent costs.
AquaWand – New Efficacy
No more than 2 tools, 2 men and 2 hours are needed to rig 200 meters of AquaWall (no load vehicles, lift trucks or any other auxiliary devices).
- AquaWand – immediately available and quick to rig.
- Simple rigging: No special tools needed, no loose parts, nor any storage and transportation logistics.
- All elements are at hand on site and immediately available when needed.
AquaWall is the most efficient mobile flood control system available in the market place.
AquaWand – New Safety!
The 400 kg flotsam bundle hits the flexible AquaWall at a speed of approx. 10 km/h.
- High system stability
- High impact resistance and force absorption capability through flexible wire meshes, steel ropes and post belts alongside the entire wall length
- Leak-proof water-tight connection between tarpaulin and concrete duct.
- Post-to-posst safety belts
- Protection against penetrating water from the soil to the concrete duct
- Small post distance
- Fast to rig in all weathers
AquaWall is redundantly rigged – all components are positively interconnected – a unique feature no other mobile flood control system can provide.
Corner – wall connection – drain – (pump sump)
- 1. Corner with reinforcement – available up to 90°
- 2. Connection in wall with cover plate
- 2. Connection „while in use“, with AquaWand inserted
- 3. Connection ON wall with cover plate
- 4. The pump is positioned in the drain, pumping rain water, ground water and leak water via the AquaWand into the flood
Sturdy corners, elegant wall connections and ever-dry feet because of smart drainage solution are standard with AquaWand.
