The original idea behind the OGEL construction system was as a flood defence, and this is still one of its many uses.
The thing with flood barriers is that most of the time you don’t need one but when you do, it’s got to be: quick to assemble, easy to use in difficult conditions and it’s got to do its job, otherwise the results could be devastating.
Our system solves all three of these problems in the two different ways it can be deployed.
The OGEL flood defence system is designed to be fixed and semi-permanent, for the small amount of time you need it.
The beauty of our system is that we put waste plastic to work as a fast-build flood defence barrier, in essence solving a problem with a problem.
