Caro FDS Collaborate with Local Architect to Subtly Protect Family Home

Caro Flood Defence Systems once again demonstrated their flexibility and years of expertise by providing “bespoke” flood solutions for a high end single family dwelling on the banks of a river in Buckinghamshire.As part of the planning consent, and to generally safeguard the property, Caro Flood Defence Systems were commissioned to provide flood barriers to five openings ranging from just under one metre wide up to four-and-a-half metres wide. 
 
Caro, one of the UK’s leading Flood Defence manufacturers, collaborated with a local Architectural Practice to ensure that the design was as unobtrusive as possible so as not to diminish from the grandeur of this stunning property.  As part of this process, the ground inserts for the Caro Waterwall were adapted to suit limited floor depths, whilst the floor and surrounds were designed in such a way, that all components could be hidden from view when the flood defences are not required.

Innovation is an attitude

Made In Britain is a phrase that is often used to define the consumer requirement in the UK, but as time has ebbed on Made In China seems to have quietly and unconsciously replaced it.

Here at the Caro Group we are proud of our manufacturing history dating back to 1827; including the provision of an exhibit for the Great Exhibition in 1851. The Caro Group are constantly changing and adapting to the manufacturing environment which has allowed us to thrive in a time when the industry in general, is struggling.

Caroflow Limited has recently launched an enhanced version of its WaterWall and WaterDoor demountable Flood Defence barrier, which has been created with the aid of customer feedback in our design offices.  This innovative new barrier allows total flood protection for both residential and industrial properties, with small and large scale options. The barrier is currently being approved by the British Standards Institute, allowing Caroflow to move forward with expert market knowledge and provide a first class UK designed product in a market worth £6Billion. 

Caro Systems are likewise renowned for the quality of their paving slab support systems, but moving boldly forward they have launched a new adjustable system for both paving and decking, allowing them to further establish themselves in the market. 

Maybrey Precision Castings are also forging ahead with innovative manufacturing, in the Die and Sand Cast product market.  Manufacturing in the UK has been hit badly by the migration of casting to Eastern Europe. However, Maybreys have managed to stay in the top 10 medium sized foundries in the UK by investing in cutting edge environmental and reclamation plant, allowing them not only to cut costs, but also to retain work by adhering the company to ever increasing environmental legislation.

The Caro Group of Companies have the benefit of a structured support group which drives forward product design by allowing all the companies to draw on years of expertise in areas such as design, marketing, sales and finance to allow the pioneering attitude that exists in the group to flourish.

With innovation in the UK at an all time high, the group has moulded every aspect of creativity and ingenuity to get to the forefront of the manufacturing market in the UK and our forward thinking attitude will assure that we stay there.

Flexible flood protection for electricity sub-station

A recent installation at a major Electrical sub-station, in West London, has further shown the flexibility and scope that Caro Flood’s WaterWall Defence Barrier can bring to such unique projects.

The client had required a barrier that could completely surround the large external electrical equipment on site, without preventing access into the fenced off enclosure and all components could be stored away when not needed. Caro Flood’s WaterWall was a perfect solution, but with few right-angles in sight, the resulting design was pretty unique and included a very long run of panels!
 
As with all Caro Flood projects, compound angles were calculated and a bespoke solution designed with multiple non-standard angles; before production was started with delivery to site within two weeks.
 
The location, which is right beside a river, has been affected by flooding in the past and the station is under continual threat. The clients had to get something in place as soon as possible and, after in-depth research, they decided on the Caro Flood Defence Systems WaterWall and WaterDoor products because of its reliability and convenient storage.
 
GRK Flood Defences were the sub-contracted installers to the Main Contractors on site. A major supplier and provider of Flood Defence products, GRK Flood have supplied Caro WaterWall and WaterDoor to many residential and commercial properties throughout the UK.
 
A combination of experienced installers and WaterWall’s simple design, meant installation was quick and the sub-station fully protected from future flooding within one week of arriving on site.
