The PlaxiGUARD series are flood control barriers built with different specifications to suit various use-cases and flood scenarios, aiming to save lives and livelihoods.
Designed to provide both rapid response and semi-permanent installation options, each PlaxiGUARD model is cater-made with significant differences in both make, installation method, and overall design to best address a different aspect of flood mitigation. 
With flash floods and flooding caused by torrential rains in flood-prone areas being the main target, securing a method to quickly redirect or block incoming floodwater from overwhelming chokepoints such as heavily-trafficked roads or buildings at risk (such as those with a basement) becomes a priority. That’s what the PlaxiGUARD series is: Securing the ability to quickly and effectively mitigate any flood scenario, to prevent property damage and save lives.

THE SHIELDPRO 3TX & 5TX

The Free-standing Flood Control Barrier

ShieldPRO 3TX & 5TX, the crown jewel of the series, a free-standing flood control barrier, catered for rapid response applications to deal with flash floods along roads and highways, designed for easy assembly on-site, even while flood waters are flowing.

PlaxiGUARD ShieldPRO has significant advantages over existing designs of free-standing flood barriers in the market; it is significantly cheaper per barrier unit, and of comparable weight, whose stackability allows for far easier transportation and storage. In addition, other flood barriers often require a connector piece or clamp to effectively connect the individual barrier units together, whereas the ShieldPRO’s water-tight interlocking design sidesteps this issue altogether, ensuring no leakage past the barrier wall, with no external tool being needed. Of particular use is how if parallel rows of ShieldPRO are employed, they can form a makeshift water channel to redirect flood water from the affected area.
In terms of design validity, ShieldPRO has undergone displacement, pressure load, and hydrostatic tests to ascertain the stability and durability of the design, with great results. In addition, its award-winning design alongside extensive patents that cover 9 countries, makes the PlaxiGUARD ShieldPRO model an already viable product, ready for commercial-use.

 

KEY FEATURES

1. Made from durable plastic, the ShieldPRO will not easily give way due to impact. Another benefit in the design and material that we use, is that the ShieldPRO will flex upon pressure but still remain sturdy enough for it not to break.

 

2. It’s simple but effective interlocking design was made to provide support between each module and give superior strength in battling strong current. Uses its patented U-shape locking mechanism to effectively erect a wall against the flood waters.

3. No additional implement or tools are needed to connect the units together, just use your hands.

 

4. There are specially-shaped curved connector units that allow the barrier to be installed around bends and curves and not just straight lines.

5. Infinitely stackable, reducing storage space which improves transportability and deployment- critical as an emergency response to flash flooding.

 

6. Grounded U-Lock, a permanent lock that is installed in the ground that the ShieldPRO can attach to for extra support, useful for areas identified as flood-prone.
Instead of a permanent installation, concrete ballast anchors can be attached between connections of each ShieldPRO unit to achieve a similar effect.
