Dikes and Dams Be Damned!

Living in areas earmarked by nature with seasonal floods is no cakewalk. But with The Wall for Flood Control concept, it can be! It requires no manual operation or power source. It uses the buoyant force of water to deploy. As water levels increase, the wall retracts up forming a barrier. Conversely when the water level drops, the wall too lowers into a platform for pedestrians.

The safe-lock prevents to move each partition separately, when the wall is used against flooding.

If you need to use each partition, the safe-lock has to be unlocked. When it’s unlocked, the green light comes up which means the safe-lock was unlocked. The red light shows us that it is locked.
