PS Flood Barriers™ Introduces New Hydro1™ Flood Doors With The Lowest Leakage Rate In The Industry

The new Hydro1™ line of flood doors serve as both passive flood-protection barriers and normal-use pedestrian/egress doors. Always in place, Hydro1 products are engineered to provide 24-hour passive flood-protection (no human intervention is required to deploy them) while still providing convenient access. Hydro1 Flood Doors feature the lowest leakage rate in the industry, with independent-party-witnessed factory testing to 3′ and 20′ water protection heights (and 50% less leakage than the ANSI/FM 2510 Section 4.3.3 standard; hardware included).

Unlike repurposed hollow metal flood doors that feature gaskets on walking surfaces, the Hydro1 is a purpose-built flood door with a unique one-piece perimeter gasket that creates a dependable, water-tight seal without risking damage from users. They are ADA compliant and professionally engineered to meet current flood codes.

The Hydro1 lineup currently features Pedestrian and Mechanical Room room flood doors. Both of these are available in single and paired configurations.

“Hydro1 Flood Doors are the install-them-and-let-them-do-their-job flood solution that property owners have been waiting for,” says Terry Smith, National Sales Manager for PS Flood Barriers. “Not only do they provide everyday functionality, they provide the lowest leakage rate in the industry. For us, that’s something to be proud of.”
