Delta Membranes Systems has launched a new Flood Resilience brochure, a valuable resource for home owners, architects, specifiers, planners, engineers and specialist contractors.

The brochure explains construction measures available to prevent or minimize flood water entering buildings and damaging fabric during a flood event. It also provides guidelines for reducing potential consequences where buildings are located in an area at risk of flooding.

How can Resistance and Resilience help?

Whilst protecting a home from being flooded is not cheap, taking steps to protect a home from flooding may enable people to continue living in their home after a flood event and obtain insurance at a more affordable price.

Resistance and resilience measures can avoid the need to claim on insurance if flooding occurs, or reduce the value of any claim made. Insurers will take flood resilience measures into account when providing insurance to large commercial and public sector customers. For homeowners, specialist insurers will take account of resistance and resilience measures that are installed to reduce the effects of flooding.

What is a flood risk?

Flood risk takes into consideration the harm that a flood actually causes. It is a combination of the probability (likelihood or chance) of an event happening and the consequences (impact) if it were to occur.

Being flooded is a devastating experience. Having to move out of a home and into alternative accommodation for months, sometimes years, has far-reaching and long-term consequences.

Delta's new brochure explores assessment of flood water entering into buildings, BS 85500:2015, Solutions and Delta’s Flood Resilient, Resilience and Recoverability Principles.

Flood Resiliency is not a single solution, concept or perspective but a range of measures that aims to change the way that building takes place.

Tried and tested waterproofing solutions

Delta Membrane Systems has extensive knowledge of water ingress and how it naturally performs in below ground structures. The company has committed to learning about all aspects of flooding and its impact.  The consequences of floods vary greatly depending on the location and extent of flooding and the vulnerability and value of the environments they affect. The consequences of floods vary (depending) on their location, duration, depth and speed.
