The NOAQ Boxwall is a mobile freestanding flood barrier, intended for temporary use to protect buildings and other objects from flood water. It consists of elements "boxes" that are snapped together to form a protective chain - a box wall. It is self-anchored, as it is automatically stabilized by the weight of the flood water itself. A boxwall can also be used to redirect fast flowing water in a flash flood situation. A third application is making a temporary basin - a "boxpool".
Actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing).
The solution is used successfully in a structurally operational environment. The user can and wants to recommend the solution to others.
The NOAQ Boxwall has been tested both outdoors and in a hydraulic laboratory. It has shown to be stable and has performed well. It has been on the market for almost 10 years and has been used successfully to save property in real flood situations.

How does it work?

A boxwall is made by snapping together a number of individual elements, "boxes". Each box has a horizontal part laying on the ground on the flood side. The weight of the flood water entering on top of the horizontal part press the device against the ground, and the barrier is hereby anchored reliably. A couple of rubber soles on the underside provide the necessary friction. The boxwall can even be overtopped without tipping or sliding.
