How to Avoid One of the Most Expensive Losses to a Facility
Vulnerability Assessments Save Clients' Facilities
Palm Beach, Florida , March 7, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Consequences of flooding on elevators and valuable assets can devastate a facility’s ability to function and can also cause loss of business and interruption to both the clients and owners. In some cases, flooding has rendered elevators and essential equipment in control rooms inoperable. “We have been contacted by many owners, expressing their frustrations because their facilities could not function due to essential equipment being placed in basements, sub-basements, or ground floor levels that flooded,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada.
Flood Risk America and its sister company, Flood Risk Canada came up with Vulnerability Assessments. The Vulnerability Assessments provide information and recommendations to improve the functionality of critical facilities by preventing flood exposure of elevators and valuable assets. These assessments describe how essential equipment must be protected from flooding to allow a critical facility to perform its primary function during and after a flood event. “We want to help our clients better understand and identify vulnerabilities within their facility. By using our comprehensive flood mitigation approach, I feel we can help many people from this devastating loss,” said Stephen Gill, CEO.

Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada will not only provide the assessment, but they have unique products designed to mitigate the problem. The Flood Panel uses patented flood seal technology to protect elevators and control room doors against rising floodwater. The Flood Sensory System, which is mounted in both the elevator shafts and control rooms, will not only send your elevator to the next highest level, but you will also be notified of potential flooding via their central monitoring station.
