CUSTOM-DESIGNED WAVE BUMPER

Within two years, WAVE BUMPER has enlarged its standard range to offer, in addition to products for protection against marine submersion, a whole range of products to protect homes from hurricanes and flooding.

We can all recall natural catastrophes which have led to considerable destruction. Whether it be storms, hurricanes or floods, everyone wants to be able to protect themselves from these hazards.

This range was designed after Hurricane Irma hit the French Caribbean islands of Saint Barthélemy and Saint Martin in September 2017, causing around one hundred deaths and considerable damage. So, we designed a range of protection units which can be attached directly to buildings. They transform the house into a sturdy seawall during the period of the cyclone, while remaining removable. Over the past year they have been directly integrated in the reconstruction work of villas on the island of Saint Barthélemy.

Since then, we have extended our range to also include custom-designed protection against flooding, cofferdams.

These solutions are for public and private establishments found in risk areas (beach establishments, private properties, coastal buildings, etc.).

To define the right solution for a site which is particularly sensitive, our engineers carry out a series of hydrodynamic and mechanical studies. After this work, we define the dimensions and composition of the elements to be manufactured to protect the building in question. These studies take into account transportation, anchoring and storage constraints for each element.

FrontBlade®

The solution for protecting large windows and doorways in buildings

The FrontBlade® solution is specifically developed to protect the windows and doorways in buildings directly exposed to the risk of marine submersion and cyclone hazards.

This innovation consists of a series of modules designed and manufactured individually, which are placed against the facade of the building. The modules transform the building into a sturdy seawall during the period of the cyclone, while remaining removable and re-usable.

During an event which creates submersion waves, the FrontBlades® absorb and diminish the power of the waves. Just like BumperBlade® technology, the patented curve from WAVE BUMPER returns the mass of water towards the ocean to diminish the power of the next wave.

They can constitute a full shield concealing all the building’s openings (bay windows, doors, windows, etc.).

Technical features
  • Structure in composite materials
  • Attached to the building
  • Resistance to impacts from floating debris
  • Possible mounting of the FrontBlade® elements together
  • Modules with shape memory
  • A low ground surface footprint
  • Easy storage (stackable elements)
  • Possible customization (color, slogan, logo, etc.)
  • Delivered with an instruction manual

FlatFront®

Specific technology for protection of your windows

The FlatFront® solution is designed to protect the windows of buildings indirectly exposed to the risk of marine submersion and cyclone hazards.

It is what is called second line protection, which means that it is adapted to windows which are not directly facing the swell, or for protection of smaller windows.

Their convex shape enables them to be attached to a vertical surface without needing to be attached to the ground.

Technical features
  • Structure in composite materials
  • Attached to the building
  • Resistance to impacts from floating debris
  • Possible mounting of the FlatFront® elements together
  • Modules with shape memory
  • Easy storage (stackable elements)
  • Possible customization (color, slogan, logo, etc.)
  • Delivered with an instruction manual

STORAGE METHODS

Our engineers conceive storage solutions for each of our elements according to your problems. Transportation by truck or container is also optimized.
