M3 Flood Test 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 mitigation products - our Worcestershire head office is home to the UK’s first ever privately owned BSI approved Research & Development testing facility.

State-of-the-art Flood Test Tank

The specialist ‘tank’ is designed to test a range of flood mitigation products up to a water depth of 900m.

The Test Tank features a Self Activating Barrier (SAB), an industrial Flood Gate and the Flood House.

Flood Test Facility

The Flood House

The Flood House allows visitors to experience flood conditions from inside a purpose built house, protected by a range of M3 Floodtec products.

Specialist Testing

When projects dictate, our engineers work with specialist external organisations to implement rigorous testing programmes.

Working with French energy company EDF, we implemented testing of our SAB to demonstrate effectiveness in post-earthquake flood conditions.

Testing was undertaken at Bristol University’s Earthquake Engineering Research Centre where a 15 tonne, Six Axis Earthquake simulator was utilised to test functionality following S1 & S2 category quake.

Results showed the SAB was essentially rigid at frequencies within normal seismic test range of 0-35Hz. Testing was witnessed by representatives of EDF and University of Bristol.

M3 Flood Test Facility

The Test Tank facility is available to use by flood mitigation manufacturers to test their products to BSI Kitemark standards.

The Test Tank & Flood House is also open to visits from industry stakeholders, homeowners, community flood groups and the media. Anyone interested in visiting should give us a call on 01905 676467 to discuss.
