Grand Forks, North Dakota – The PS DOORS Flood Plank System and Pedestrian Flood Door have achieved Level 2 Platinum status through the National Flood Barrier Testing and Certification Program. The Association of State Flood Plain Managers (ASFPM) in partnership with FM Approvals and the US Army Corps of Engineers /National Flood Proofing Committee (NFPC) have tested and approved the PS DOORS products to carry their prestigious FM Approved Label.
The FM Approved mark is backed by scientific research and testing and informs customers that flood barriers are effective and safe to use in their industrial environments. Companies around the world rely on FM Approved products to protect their properties from loss.
PS DOORS, established in 1974, is an industry leader in design and custom manufacturing of flood barriers, industrial doors and safety products. The Pedestrian Flood Door and Flood Plank System were designed to satisfy flood protection needs around the world. From start to finish, each design utilized certified welders, engineers, 3-D CAD professionals and fully integrated ERP manufacturing software to build reliable flood barriers to meet the FM Approved requirements.
The Pedestrian Flood Door is one of the most progressive products in the flood protection market today. This door is a normal use pedestrian walkway that also acts as a flood protection door. As long as the door is closed and latched, your facility is protected from flooding up to 36" of water.
The Flood Plank System is an economical and effective way to provide water protection to your commercial or residential structure. Flood planks are quickly deployed and activated at time of need. This system is FM Approved for maximum water heights of 3’ high and 10’ wide. Planks are conveniently stored away from your opening when flooding conditions are not present; ensuring your structure is not permanently altered.
"When flooding happens, the ability to react quickly and protect infrastructure is critical," said Terry Smith, PS DOORS National Sales Manager. "PS DOORS' flood protection products can preserve your facility from dangerous and costly flooding by ensuring important equipment, generators and critical assets are dry."
