Tachibana Engineering (HK) Ltd. supplied floodgates to Hong Kong as early as 2008 to protect electrical switch rooms which have high risk of flooding. All of our floodgates installed have survived Super-Typhoons “Hato” in 2017 and “Mangkhut” in 2018.
Our floodgate is of a removable hand held design, made to measure to ensure the highest degree of water tightness. The flood panel is rigid and yet light weight to allow manual handling without the use of tools. It can be set up easily prior to the arrival of a storm at a short time.
Applications are electrical switch rooms, car park entrance, door entrance, public lift entrance, etc.
