HAWCE Site Visit – Flood Defence
M3 Floodtec provide flood protection for Infrastructure, Industrial, Commercial and Residential properties. We aim to protect all potential areas of water ingress both above and below ground. Operating throughout the UK and Globally from our base in Droitwich with a suite of registered designs and patent protected flood defence products that are independently tested by the BSI and proven to be flood resistant. All our products are specifically designed to keep flood water out of properties and away from critical infrastructure.
BSI Approved Testing and Demonstrations Facility
As a leader in our field, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation to address the needs of an ever-changing environment. Fundamental to this programme of development is our ability to access state of the art testing facilities for both domestic and commercial flood resilience products.
Our Worcestershire head office is home to a BSI approved Research & Development testing facility that is available to flood resilience manufacturers to test their products to BSI BS 851188 standard.
The introduction of the new British Standard BS 851188 sets goals that suppliers must reach, and more customers are now insisting on BSI KitemarkTM Certified products. Our commitment to being able to supply certified products is absolute and backed by investment in a state-of-the-art test facility in Droitwich.
This facility can test product to the new standard as well as demonstrating to Clients what can be achieved in regard to property flood protection. https://www.m3floodtec.com/flood-test-facility
Our target is to be able to offer the test facility to existing and new manufacturers to validate products prior to formal accreditation and is now used by BSI to utilise the tank as their prime test facility to undertake formal kitemark certification.
