Watergate Flood Solutions
We manufacture composite and upvc domestic flood defence doors.
We are the first company to secure a British Standard Institute (BSI) PAS1188-1-2014 kitemark for both composite and upvc flood defence doors.
Our products are currently being specified across the north of England to specifically help address the aftermath of Storm Desmond which in the winter of 2016 devastated large swaths of the Lake District, North Yorkshire, Northumberland and Durham.
We operate a full manufacturing facility, at which our specialist craftsmen assemble the highest quality products to meet the bespoke needs of our customers.
All our flood prevention doors carry BSI kitemarks which means they are vigorously independently tested at a BSI facility in Hertfordshire and our manufacturing plant is assessed for the quality of the production of the product which is continued on a regular basis, typically once or twice a year.
The doors are subjected to BSI testing as defined in BSI PAS 1188-1:2014 which represent typical conditions that might be experienced during a flood in the UK. This includes testing the product for leakage under static water levels of 600MM above aperture threshold levels, waves of up to 100mm high and parallel currents of up to 1.0m/s.
We are very proud of our industrial heritage in the North East. We have a long tradition of engineering and we work very hard as a local business to contribute to the regional economy, through developing top class engineering skills. Applying this expertise to the water industry, of which we have in-depth knowledge, has enabled us to produce a UK leading product.
We adhere to VEKA standards. VEKA has led the world in the environmentally responsible use of PVC-U for many years. VEKA is committed to minimising the impact at every stage of a door`s life including manufacturing, fabrication, energy efficiency in the home and recycling.
