The Aquacast Flood Defence System is an innovative interlocking retaining wall system for use in flood defence and riverbank reinforcement.
Simple and quick to install Can be used as a temporary or permanent structure Ideal for rapid water and river bank reinforcement to combat floods and land slides Easily constructed into curves to accommodate bends in a river
By overlapping at half block lengths in alternate directions the reverse slots provide a rigid format with a uniformly pitched centrally located aperture. These cavities can be filled with various materials to form permanent or temporary constructions. Steel pilings can be used through the centre of each cast to add additional reinforcement and strength when required. The blocks can be used below the water level rising above water level as needed. Further blocks can be added to or taken away from the original structure at a later date if required.

Installation of the Aquacast concrete flood defence system
It is advised that prior to the installation of a permanent structure or any structure above 1 metres tall a site survey and ground density analysis should be carried out by a structural engineer. It maybe required to apply a foundation material depending on the basic conditions of the ground and advice can be made on additional reinforcing material for the structure.
The wall system can be used with various water retaining membranes and materials to ensure water is retained. The system is flexible and can be used with a number of different jointing systems.
In addition to our extensive product range we are able to offer a full installation service and can manage the whole process for you, from the initial design plan through to installation and aftercare. This means you can have one point of contact to manage your whole project for you from start to finish. We manage all the logistics and deliver you a completed project, on time and within budget.
Our installation team have years of experience and we are confident that we can offer both a competitive package and a level of service that surpasses your expectations.

Examples of the Aquacast in use
Ideal for fast response emergencies requiring strength and durability, the blocks are quick to install and can create a temporary or permanent structure.
Ideally the construction is back filled to ensure its integrity, or scalpings can be used to accommodate drainage making the blocks an excellent option for flood risk assessment and management.

Poundfield Precast Ltd manufactured a set of 36 unique and irregular precast concrete panels for our project on the Grade I Listed Menai Suspension Bridge. Each of the panels were of excellent quality and manufactured to our tight tolerance of +/- 3mm. The team at Poundfield are easy to do business with and the communication throughout the project has been very collaborative.

As a US designer and supplier of Highway Safety Equipment its important to work with someone you trust when building and supplying product in an overseas market. Working with Poundfield and in particular Tim Evans and Michael Roddy gave us that. This was critical on the high profile project we worked on during the worst of covid when travel was limited, They were very transparent and easy to work with including correcting the problems that comes with every project.

Have worked closely with Tim and the team on several projects. Very efficient, capable business with good products and service.

After flash flooding in August 2020, we desperately needed drainage channels that could carry the water away and allow us to rebuild the road. Having been very pleased with our previous use of Poundfield products, we naturally turned to them, and they quickly offered us a perfect solution at a very fair price, which have worked brilliantly over this very wet winter.

The quality of the precast cantilever walls units delivered to site was second to none and consistent for the 355no units produced. The delivery time scale was really tight, however Poundfield actually delivered all 355 units ahead of schedule. Communication and the level of customer service afforded was also fantastic. I will personally recommend Pound field for your precast solutions.
