DS6 flood cover performance enhanced.

We are continually developing new covers and improving the performance of their range.

Recently we have concluded further trials with their new DS6 flood cover.

Working with a specialist company, Point Engineering based in Hull, who test marine doors for ships, a specific test rig was designed which would replicate a flood surge. We have designed a unique system, attached to the composite frame, which allows the cover to move within the frame. This allows the release of pressure and water but maintains the cover within the confines of the frame.

SSC’s D400 DS6 – 600 x 600mm clear opening composite cover and frame was tested in increments of 0.5 Bar and actually was tested without failure up to 2.20 Bar. See the slomotion video below.
