No need to put up the barriers with formal partnership announced

John Hunt, business development manager for VEKA Group said: “Flood Angel currently produces around 150 doors each week for the domestic and commercial markets. We’re pleased to have demonstrated the added benefits that VEKA profile will bring to these products, and look forward to working in partnership.”

UK Flood Barriers delivers commercial contracts and flood prevention measures for riverside and coastal areas. One such contract involved building and installing retractable flood barriers for a university hospital in New York.

John added: “The company has its own in-house flood tank facilities, and we’re exploring tests to assess VEKA’s French doors with a view to broadening the fenestration options available for homes and business properties in flood risk areas.”

With Ian McNiffe, VEKA Group’s technical service engineer (South) overseeing the tooling and software setup, the partners hope to produce initial ‘try out’ units within the next month.
