All Weather Industries (AWI), an Irish-owned flood protection company founded in 2017 has recently partnered with Scottsdale Corporation to launch the Dam Easy Flood Barriers in the Philippines.
First launched by AWI in Ireland in September, 2017, Dam Easy, according to AWI CEO and co-founder Brian Mooney is “an off-the-shelf, easy to install quality flood protection barrier.”
“Dam Easy is a unique patented Irish design, being the first barrier with a unique pneumatic seal requiring no tools or fixings or sealant to install. These barriers which are made of recyclable, high performance and impact-resistant ABS plastic have gone through rigorous certification in Germany,” Mooney added.
Initially launched in Ireland and the U.K., Dam Easy Flood Barriers are now sold in 28 countries through 21 distribution partners worldwide and is also available online.
“Ireland is prone to floods just as neighboring countries in Europe also are. The product is designed to help householders and is better than the traditional sandbag method of preventing floods,” added Dam Easy Asia Pacific President Greg Shenton.
The innovative Dam Easy Flood Barrier has been a finalist for both the Flood Resilient and Innovation in Flood Protection Awards at the Global Flood Expo London in 2017.
All barriers are individually tank tested and have gone the rigorous certification process by EVH in Germany. Packed in reusable bags, they can be easily installed to their full width in a span of four minutes.
Scottsdale Corporation manages and operates the sole distribution of this amazing flood solution in the Philippines. Scottsdale Corporation President Cheriza Manalang recalls how she discovered Dam Easy.
“Several years ago, during heavy rains that flooded Metro Manila, our whole house in Taytay was under water. Until then, I thought our place was flood-free and then it happened. Then last year, my husband and I came across a viral video in Facebook which was about Dam Easy Flood Barrier.”
With the thought of protecting their own home from flood, Cheriza and her husband then realized that well, many Filipinos will also benefit from a product that truly lives up to its company’s mission of “Flood Protection Made Easy.”
From households, the growing clientele that availed of the protection provided by Dam Easy Flood Barriers also included business establishments that suffer considerable losses as a result of flooding.
With the rainy season just around the corner, the Philippines is once again bracing for days of flooding in many areas including Metro Manila. With the availability of Dam Easy Flood Barriers, worrying about the devastating effects of flooding may soon be a thing of the past.
