Both units are stored at Point-of-Use, thus providing deployment and retraction in minutes, with minimal manpower or equipment required.   The Side-Deployed Flex-Wall®  can be customized to a wide variety of openings and widths, as well as accounting for significant Design Flood Elevations and surge.  All parts and equipment are stored at the point-of-use for maximum efficiency in an extreme weather event.
