To sustain a higher level of flood protection, acroprops may be specified by the AWMA engineering team. Acroprops are typically used for industrial, commercial or community flood mitigation to support the centre posts of demountable flood barrier systems, strengthening the structure to reduce overturning loads. As pictured, FloodFree acroprops assist in supporting the barrier wall to prevent leakage during extreme flood events. They are quickly and easily fastened to permanent concrete footings and placed at angles to the flood barrier. Attached by a pin, they can be adjusted to preload the barrier for structural reinforcement in emergency situations.
