Sydney: Blobel barrier protects underground garage from flooding

An unexpected sight awaited the residents of the Moreton by the Park housing complex in Redfern, Australia, as they looked out of their windows on the morning of 8 March this year: the streets of this Sydney suburb were knee-deep in rainwater. And yet none of them had any cause to worry about their cars, the lift shafts or other sensitive fixtures in the building’s underground garage. Installed at the entrance to the garage more than a year previously, the BL/HWS-K Blobel flood barrier ahad – not for the first time – proved its reliability by automatically moving into position to prevent the basement level in this block of flats from flooding.

In fact, Blobel has installed six other barriers around Redfern Park – and at the entrance to the catacombs of Redfern Stadium – to safeguard against flooding.
