New Flood Test Tank Facility

Initially built in 2009, UKFB’s Test Tank facility has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment.

UKFB Test Tank

The Test Tank is the UK’s only privately owned, BSI approved Research & Development testing facility.

The refurbishments have included the most noticeable addition of the Flood House, which allows visitors to experience flood conditions from inside the house. The Flood House is protected with Flood Defender Doors, Anti-Flood Airbricks, a Non-Return Valve and Sump & Pump system.

In addition to the Flood House, visitors can see the Self Activating Flood Barrier and an industrial Flood Gate working in live conditions.

The Tank is designed to test a range of products up to a depth of one metre, and is available to use by flood mitigation manufacturers to test their products to BSI Kitemark standards.

In addition, adjacent to the Tank Room we have a new Innovation Gallery. The Gallery has been set up to showcase flood protection products, both domestic & commercial, and case studies of our projects. Steel Security Fire & Flood Doors can be seen in the gallery.
