Velox

Civil Intervention

The Velox is a rapid deployment, roll-out dam that uses the floodwater to unfold itself, and to create an effective barrier against floods.

Features

This mobile barrier uses the pressure of the upcoming water to stabilize itself and to stay into position. A 15 m long Velox of 1m in height is deployed in just a few seconds, and replaces 1 500 sandbags (equivalent of 25 tons). Different types of this barrier can be connected to each other to rapidly protect large areas from flooding.
