Using the TBS Garage Door that has proven its effectiveness for many years, TBS has developed the AquaLOCK® System for garage doors that now offers building owners twice the reassurance: Protection against flooding and heavy rain, as well as protection against burglars.
Tests by the highly respected IFT Institute in Rosenheim are carried out using purified water. However, because floodwater is always dirty, the particles of dirt reinforce the water protection effect as they close off the tiny channels that water can still find its way into.
So in practice, "flood-resistant"* means that out of the thousands of liters that threaten your building, only a tiny fraction of – at most – 10 liters per hour can trickle through.
During a flood, over 6,000 liters of water can press against your garage in a very short space of time. A normal garage door does not stand a chance – the entire weight of the water will flood the interior.
The AquaLOCK® System for garage doors and access doors, on the other hand, can hold 99.9% of the water at bay, allowing no more than 24 liters in 24h to enter the garage – which is a volume that can be easily mopped up. Often, in practice, even less water than this actually enters your garage! The AquaLOCK® garage door, depending on the door height, is flood-resistant up to 1.6 m, and the AquaLOCK® access door is flood-resistant up to 2 m.
So that your AquaLOCK® garage door can perfectly fulfill its task, it must be fitted with millimeter accuracy to your garage. Precise measuring is therefore the first task that our experienced on-site fitters carry out – the basis for a detailed and reliable service.
Your AquaLOCK® Garage Door is tailored precisely to your garage and your building; the high-quality materials and colors are yours to choose.
We make components, frame constructions and stop rails on request, for example from high-quality stainless steel. This is a tremendously important difference from other suppliers, and one that makes a crucial difference in terms of lifespan.
We can also produce virtually every garage door in 200 different RAL colors.
Of course, we can also adapt the fascia panels and side frames to suit, as well as the door frame and side pieces to the overall design.
Thanks to the special sealing system, AquaLOCK® Garage Doors are significantly more secure than most normal garage doors.> Find out more about AquaLOCK® Break-In Protection
„In recent years, the damage done by heavy rain has gotten worse and worse. So we decided to finally secure our garage against flooding the right way and we had a garage door installed with the AquaLOCK® System.
It was all done within a day, and since then, our garage has been dry!"
