Barriers prevent floods, waves

Flood and wave action protection for homes and businesses in the Cayman Islands has been taken to a new level.

Removable barrier systems are stored away until the time of need and then re-mounted to the building using pre-existing fasteners.

Active Traders, supplier and installer of storm protection systems in Cayman for five years, has teamed up with Flood Barrier Inc., from Florida to offer a number of flood and wave action protection systems for businesses, condos and homes, states a press release.

With more than 13 years experience developing flood barriers, Flood Barrier Inc. systems are in use throughout North and South America, the Caribbean and the European Union.

‘Active Traders has always provided the most comprehensive range of hurricane defence systems,’ commented, Mark Delapenha at Active Traders. ‘This new product provides the maximum protection possible, not just against wind, but also flood and wave action, therefore it is an absolute must for any business or condominium.’

The Rigidam system uses high strength aluminium components and watertight seals to protect buildings from flood water up to a water level of 7’6′. This system would be perfect for businesses in low-lying and flood prone areas within the Cayman Islands.

The system uses patented technology to use the weight and form of the water itself to form a waterproof barrier. This incredible lightweight, modular system can protect against rough seas and storm surge of up to 5’6′ along a building of any length.

Residents of the Cayman Islands that would like to learn more about this exciting technology can call Active Traders on 769 5922 or visit
