Deployables

DESCRIPTION:
Structures and elements that are placed and sited in advance of a storm event to provide flood protection barrier at their specific location. Some deployables are stored and have to be manually spaced and set up by a team of workers in the event of a flood. Others are embedded into the environment and mechanically operated to automatically provide flood protection in the event of a large storm.
