Product and System Testing:
- Dry Testing: Every FloodSafe door installed is dry tested. This test determines whether compression of the gasket material produces a sufficient seal to flood proof that doorway. FloodSafe USA does not finalize your project until all your FloodSafe doors pass this dry test. FloodSafe USA works to achieve the tightest seal possible in your FloodSafe doors. While flood doors may allow some seepage during a flood event, the tighter we can make your seal, the less likely that will happen. In fact, most FloodSafe doors do not leak at all!
- Wet Testing: Consists of building a temporary moat around the FloodSafe USA application being tested (FloodSafe walls coatings, Floodsafe windows, or Floodsafe doors) and then producing a mock flood event by filling that moat up to the flood level expected. All FloodSafe USA systems have been extensively and repeatedly wet tested over sustained periods of time and proven 100% effective even in tests conducted years after the initial installation and primary testing period. Wet testing can be performed on any FloodSafe USA product or application we install for you for an additional fee. Simply indicate that you would like wet testing performed when you place your order.
- Flood Testing: The true test that you hope to pass is the actual flooding event that comes after we install your FloodSafe USA System. We are happy to report real success stories from our clients on our Testimonials Page. These are clients who have reported back to us that the system passed and they are relieved to have survived a flood without damage! We rejoice with you when this happens, and hope you will share your own story with our website visitors when the time comes. One of our clients installed the FloodSafe System just two weeks before a third flood event in their neighborhood. This video shows the home was protected before the cosmetic finishes were even in place.
