Inner-city areas, ports and industrial districts, road and rail crossings are just a few examples of places where permanent structures are often a hindrance because they restrict visibility and the movement of traffic. If flooding occurs only occasionally in such places, our demountable flood protection systems can be used instead of the more elaborate, more costly permanent solutions.
ThyssenKrupp Bautechnik offers the TKR aluminium stop log system for such applications. On request, flood gates and doors, and the mobile Aqua-Stop dam system can also be supplied. Our temporary systems are:
TKR aluminium stop log system
Depending on local conditions and flood situation, temporary aluminum systems are used which protect the dike up to a height of 2.40 m above the dike top.
The retrofittable elements consist of aluminum supports with a 10% incline as well as intermediate beams which can be braced against one another horizontally and vertically. The aluminum profiles are easy to handle and install, require little storage space and offer high stability and tightness.
TKR aluminum stop log system
The aluminum stop log system consists of only a few standard parts and can be used as a protective wall, for dike openings and for building protection. The logs and supports are made from aluminum profiles. Vertical bracing of the logs is by means of wedges made of impact-resistant plastic, while horizontal bracing is by means of screw lock units. Special purpose-designed seals of EPDM material ensure the tightness of the system. The EPDM material is weathering-resistant, robust and resistant to aggressive chemicals.
Strip foundations, sheet walls, piles or other suitable foundations can be used. Loads are transferred into the foundations via anchor plates and stainless steel bolts. For direct mounting on steel sheet pile walls, special connecting structures are available.
- Simple design
- Robust construction for high reliability
- Easy installation
- No special tooling necessary
- Long life
- Low maintenance, care and storage requirements
- Highly resistant EPDM seal
- Logs and supports made of corrosion-resistant aluminum
- Connecting elements made of stainless steel
Fold-up flood protection system
Our fold-up flood protection system is used as a complement to steel sheet pile walls to temporarily raise the flood line or close off roads. The advantage is that it is already located directly on-site and is ready for use immediately.
Stop panel system
A special version of the TKR aluminum stop log system is the stop panel system. Stop panel systems provide fast, reliable and economic flood protection.
Stop panels are fabricated from stop logs and are inserted into the support structure as a complete wall panel and then braced for sealing. They are also suitable as inspection closures for locks, weirs and inlets.
Stop panels can also take the form of large-area walls of aluminum or steel and are brought from their storage position into their protection position with the lifting gear provided. Larger surface areas can thus be assembled quickly and with little effort. Stop panels are preferably stored in the direct vicinity or integrated directly in the flood protection system.
Smaller stop panel systems, which are usually installed manually, are available in various designs for doors, windows and gateways. The panels are manufactured individually for a particular opening.
Enormous property damage is caused by flooding inside buildings. A reliable protection system which takes into account the specific requirements of the building is therefore essential.
We offer proven flood protection doors and gates in various styles for watertight closure of openings in buildings and flood protection systems:
- One and two-leaf doors
- Sliding doors
- Tilting, swivel and miter gates
- TKR aluminum stop log and stop panel systems for window and door openings
The materials used are steel or aluminum with various corrosion protection and design possibilities. In addition to manual operation, electric or hydraulic operators can also be supplied. Door type, design and outer appearance are selected on a project to project basis, allowing us to exactly meet our clients’ needs and wishes.
