What is PFR?
PFR is made up of two elements: Resistance and Resilience
Keep it out!
Air Vent Protection
Let it in!
Flood Resilient Walls
Water Resilient Flooring
Tiled floors and skirting boards are also easier to clean compared to carpet and laminate which usually need replacing after a flood event.
Flood Resilient Design
• Cupboards constructed from stainless steel or other resilient materials
• Use of wall mounted cupboards
• Removable kickboards
• Appliances such as ovens can be installed above flood level.
These same principles can be carried throughout to other rooms in the property.
Personal or Valuable items
The storage of valuable or personal items should be carefully considered throughout the ground floor. Can items be stored on the first floor away from danger or on shelves or bookcases above the flood level?
