At the annual awards dinner for the 2013 Inspire Business Awards, J&J Carter was presented the Innovation Excellence Award for, among others, its Eco-Dam flood defense product.
J&J Carter Ltd., founded in 1988, specializes in the design and building of tensile structures. The company has diversified into other fields of technical textiles and manufactures products such as environmental coverings, oil booms, Bio-Gas and flood barriers.
The Eco Dam is a temporary, removable, reusable and recyclable flood defense product that is intended to protect a group of properties or a business site from impending flood risk. The Eco Dam can also be used as a temporary cofferdam on construction sites to use in the reconstruction of waterways and rivers.
Manufactured from high tensile PVC coated polyester, Eco Dam’s specially patented design prevents rolling. The overlapping modular design enables extended protection in line and can be arranged to form shaped defense areas thus affording protection to an area of land or building.
