WK Model FP-C

Removable compression gasket flood barriers – the most protection available in a removable model

When flooding can occur from either direction, or when absolute protection is required, compression gasket barriers should be used. The gasket on the removable panel is compressed against the barrier frame using either rotating dogs or drop bolts. This compression creates a 100% watertight seal in both directions. This model requires a raised knife-edge to compress the gasket, so most barriers have a raised bottom sill (typically 1.5″). Recessed sills with removable flush sill plates are available to comply with ADA requirements. Ease of installation, low maintenance, and the security of the seal make this barrier a popular choice. These barriers are particularly suited for large openings or openings subject to higher pressure loads.
