The objective of this project was to provide a technical guide on the use of the main types of temporary and demountable flood protection systems that are currently available. These are systems, which are self-supporting or free standing, not products which are fitted to existing structures or buildings. The latter are covered in the publication “Preparing for floods”.

The principal output is the R&D Interim Guidance on Use. This provides information on types of flood protection systems available and guidance and considerations regarding their use.
