Testing HiBar flood protector

Initial proof of concept was provided by a working model protecting a one metre by one-and-a-half metre area against an 18 inch simulated flood.

The first full sized prototype was installed in a custom-made testing tank in a sand & gravel quarry north of Hereford, and underwent extensive testing, simulating floods of varying intensities and speeds whilst at the same time offering many potential users to witness it in action. Some were confident enough to stand in the middle whilst the barrier erected itself around them!

It is intended to obtaining BSI Kitemark or similar 3rd party accreditation in due course, but in the meantime HiBar has secured agreement of the Environment Agency to install the next prototype at their Lea Marston (Settlement Lakes) facility in Warwickshire.
