Zero International, headquartered in Bronx, N.Y., has introduced
a new, removable barrier that helps protect doors and household
contents from water ingress in flood-prone areas.
According to a company news release, when water from heavy rains
accumulates on porches or patios, Zero's #2070 Flood Barrier Shield
blocks up to a foot or more of flood waters from permeating door
openings and complies with standards of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) and Federal Insurance Administration
for use on doors in flood-prone areas.
Available in vertical sections of 10, 20 and 30 inches, the barrier
shield requires no tools for insertion into a pair of pre-mounted
vertical channels attached to either the door frame or adjacent
walls. The Flood Barrier Shield is a lightweight, flat sheet of
aluminum with closed cell sponge neoprene rubber engineered to
create a watertight seal.
