NOAQ Boxwall BW102 – Flood Protection AB

Sponsored Article by NOAQ Flood Protection AB

The NOAQ Boxwall is a freestanding temporary flood barrier. It is designed specifically for the urban environment, with even surfaces like asphalt streets, but it works as well on lawns, etc.

A NOAQ Boxwall BW102 can dam 1 meter of water and is self-anchoring, as it is automatically ballasted by the weight of the floodwater. The higher the water rises, the harder is the barrier pressed against the ground. Utilizing the weight of the water, the barrier itself doesn’t need to be heavy. The BW102 ”boxes” weigh only 15.2 kg each and the barrier, not more than
17 kg per meter. This makes it easy to use, and fast to deploy. Two people can build 100 linear meters of boxwall in an hour.

A Boxwall is built by snapping the boxes together. No tools are needed. Gradual curves are made by connecting the boxes at a slight angle.

There is also a lower Boxwall model, the BW52, which can hold back 50 cm of water (see separate fact sheet).

The boxes can be stacked, which means they require very little space for storage and transport. They are loaded in stackable cases, with 32 boxes (29 m) in each case. A 40’ container can take 16 such cases or in total 460 meters of Boxwall.
