conditions and requires no specialist operation. They have also been designed to look like a regular composite door to help maintain the kerb appeal of the property.


Flood doors are also one of the most cost effective tried and tested method of protecting a property and preventing the costly damage floods can cause, and will therefore help local authorities to future- proof their properties and their tenants’ belongings. Flood doors are also designed to be re-usable; if a flood occurs, it doesn’t need to be replaced when the water subsides, it simply needs to be serviced by a qualified door technician to ensure that any pollutants from the water are removed, and that the seals, locks and the installation are in working order should the waters rise again.


Meeting the standards When it comes to choosing a flood defence door, the starting point is to make sure it has been tested to PAS 1188-1:2014, the UK standard for flood protection products. All products tested to PAS 1188 are subject to an initial ‘type’ test and the


facility that manufactures the product is also assessed for quality at the start of the process.


Summary


Flooding is a growing concern for many homeowners in the UK and is potentially devastating for those affected, not only in terms of damage to the building but the risk to life. With a number of studies identifying millions of homes at risk, there is a need to start future- proofing properties now. One of the most effective ways of doing this is by specifying a suitable flood defence door, which will mean it has PAS 1188 certification – the benefits of a 68 mm double rebated door, both in terms of ease of installation and performance are already widely understood. Flood doors are a cost-effective, tried and trusted method of protecting a property from flooding and the damage it creates, and will therefore help local authorities and developers to future-proof their properties.

Lindrick Eco Build, which specialises in energy efficient off-site housebuilding, has used Norbord’s CaberDek and SterlingOSB Zero on a project in Doncaster, Yorkshire. The new house has been built for a couple who are approaching retirement and wanted to embrace


the joys of life in a sustainable home. The SterlingOSB Zero timber frame kit enabled the structure of the house to be developed off-site, while CaberDek ensured that construction on-site continued – even with the bad British weather thanks to its weather-resistant properties which provide protection from dirt and rain for up to 42 days.
