Title (EN) LIQUID BARRIER ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTOR THEREFOR
(FR) ENSEMBLE BARRIERE AU LIQUIDE ET CONNECTEUR CORRESPONDANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a liquid barrier assembly (1) for the prevention of flow of liquid from one area to an adjacent area. The assembly (1) comprises at least two barriers (2,3) each comprising a substantially rigid container and a front wall (5) against which, in use, liquid is intended to be incident. Adjacent barriers (2,3) are linked by a connector (12) which comprises a first relatively rigid portion (13) and a second relatively deformable portion (15). The portions (13, 15) are received in respective recesses defined in neighbouring side walls of adjacent barriers (2,3). The second portion (15) is deformed upon juxtaposition of adjacent barriers (2,3) in a predetermined manner so as to form an effective water-tight seal between the barriers (2,3). The arrangement is particularly suitable for flood defence barriers.
(FR)La présente invention porte sur un ensemble barrière au liquide (1) destiné prévenir l'écoulement de liquide d'une zone vers une zone adjacente. L'ensemble (1) comprend au moins deux barrières (2,3) comprenant chacune un réceptacle sensiblement rigide et une paroi avant (5) contre laquelle, en utilisation, le liquide est censé être incident. Des barrières adjacentes (2,3) sont raccordées par un connecteur (12) qui comprend une première partie relativement rigide (13) et une seconde partie relativement déformable (15). Les parties (13, 15) sont accueillies dans des évidements respectifs formés dans des parois latérales voisines des barrières adjacentes (2,3). La seconde partie (15) est déformée lors de la juxtaposition des barrières adjacentes (2,3) d'une manière prédéterminée de façon à former un joint efficace étanche à l'eau entre les barrières (2,3). L'agencement est notamment approprié à des barrières de protection contre les inondations.
