Snorkel Vent and Flood Door tests get under way

Snorkel Vent and Flood Door products have commenced independent testing! The testing is being carried out by Queen’s University, Belfast, a leading university in Environmental and Coastal Engineering with their own hydrology lab. The three main areas of testing to be carried out are static, wave and current, simulating conditions present during a flooding event. The Snorkel Vent and Flood Door easily passed the current flow tests of 1 m/s as requirement by PAS 1188:part 1. Queen’s then went on to subject the products to their maximum current of 2 m/s with ZERO leakage!!

All testing is due to be completed in January.
