The double-chamber hose flutschutz is designed for use as transportable emergency equipment for defensive protection against unexpected floods.
When filled with water, it forms a tight barrier against the surface and against houses and other buildings. The double-chamber hose flutschutz is manufactured in separate segments of different lengths, and can be set up as a barrier of any length along a body of water or any other area which is at risk of being flooded. Any changes in direction can be dealt with by laying the hose in one or more curves.
When used as an emergency system, the double-chamber hose flutschutz is suitable for a maximum water retention height of 0.60 metres. However, a safety margin of an additional 0.30 metres is incorporated in the construction.
The practical suitability of the double-chamber hose flutschutz has been tested and certified by the TÜV-Nord (German Association for Technical Inspection).
