The MOVABLE BARRIER FLOODWALL SYSTEM™ (MBFS) is a custom designed series of concrete floodwalls placed underground inside a trenched concrete U channel. A variety of powered systems raises the floodwall above grade to prevent flooding. After the flood the flood walls are lowered back underground where the system remains “invisible”. The scope of the system ranges from a closure unit to miles of flood protection. Based on Finite Element Analysis the systems can be designed against hydrostatic, hydrodynamic and impact loading up to a Category 5 hurricane.
