SCFB – Self Closing Flood Barrier

De SCFB® (Self Closing Flood Barrier) is the most efficient flood protection system. Since 1998 this passive flood barrier protects buildings, infrastructure and communities from the dangers of flash floods and rising tides.



The success of this urban flood dike can be attributed to the simple yet ingenious concept of using the approaching waters to fight the floods.  The force of the floodwater automatically raises the barrier and protects the hinterland.
