Rijlaarsdam Design Holding BV


The project

Corne Rijlaarsdam has designed a system to prevent flood damage. The installation can bet set up in any length and thanks to the integrated struts, a comprehensive and fully dependable flood barrier using panels can be erected within a very short space of time. All components are kept under lock and key. The composite panels recess inside the wall and are durable and stronger than aluminium.


A product that helps to solve the problem with flooding rivers. A solution which is well designed, with a lot of attention given to details, that usually are missing from this kind of products. The committee had some notes on the technical drawings however, it hopes that some improvements will be done during tests.


The Dutchdam (foldable water system) amazed us all because of its clever and strong design and because of simple installing system: the water will not beat the Dutch!
