Are you at risk from flooding?
The environment agency estimates around 5.2 million properties in England, or one in six properties, are at risk of flooding. More than 5 million people live and work in 2.4 million properties that are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, one million of which are also at risk of surface water flooding. A further 2.8 million properties are susceptible to surface water flooding alone.
The environment Agency website provide free guidance on your local Flood Map. Alternatively, the government’s Long Term Flood Risk Assessment page provide basic indication on the likelihood that a place could be flooded in the future.

A company you can trust
All of our installers have undergone rigorous training designed and accredited by Flood Professionals, a BSI certified supplier. This means that the survey and installation of our flood defences will be to the highest standards. Please call us on 0191 516 6911 for some advice.
Property owner or occupier will be briefed throughout the installation process and made aware of measures to maintain products’ condition to their maximum. Our products are discrete and only visible with the first signs of flood. You can choose from the following range: –
- Flood defences such as anti-flood air bricks
- Flood doors such as Flood Angel single and double door flood barriers
- Sewage defences such as Flood Angel non-return valves (NRV) fitted for domestic waste pipes
- Flood Angel water stop which is a solution used to coat brick work
Airbricks, brickwork and pointing are all key areas for consideration when flood protecting a property.
