WK Model FP-I

Removable inflatable gasket flood barrier

Similar to the removable lipseal flood barrier, these barriers also have a flush bottom sill but they can withstand water pressure from either direction. The lightweight aluminum panel can be supplied in single or multiple configurations, and offers a watertight seal to the full height of the barrier. The inflatable seals are easily inflated using a hand or foot pump, portable compressed air, bottled gas, or shop air. In most applications, the inflation equipment is pre-piped onto the panel and hidden behind a security panel. If security is not a concern, the barriers are supplied with a standard automotive style valve stem and pressure gauge. Most barriers are supplied with single gaskets, however dual gaskets are available for critical applications. Care should be taken to maintain a clean sealing surface so as to not damage the gasket.
