Geodesign Barriers

Don’t let a watercourse rain on your parade. Trust our Geodesign Barriers to keep you above the shoreline and get your project delivered on time.

Introducing the Geodesign Barrier

Our self-anchoring Swedish Geodesign Barrier is the system of choice for delivering works underwater. Building on the barrier’s 25-year history of protecting communities from flooding, we’ve adapted this proven technology to create a portable frame dam that can take the risk out of temporary works. The Geodesign Barrier is a simple but effective portable dam solution which uses the weight of the water to create a water-tight seal. Available in a range of interlinking sizes the Geodesign Barrier can easily be set out to almost any shape, allowing simple adaption to your site requirements.

And it’s not just the reliable and robust nature of the Geodesign Barrier that makes it so appealing. We continuously develop and improve the barrier, investing in engineering and design which ensures that the barrier, when expertly installed by our highly trained team, can act as a temporary dam on virtually any surface – and in any configuration – without compromising safety.
