DESCRIPTION
2.1
These barriers are used to temporarily close openings in building walls when the danger
of flood water infiltration is anticipated.
2.2
The FB33 and DoorDam barriers are used for pedestrian openings up to 3 ft (0.91 m) in
width. These barriers are placed in pre-installed brackets in the doorway and are secured
in place by an expanding jackscrew mechanism and auxiliary clamps. The DoorDam is a
lighter weight design that is sold for consumer use. The FB33 is a heavier, commercial
and industrial design. Both types of barrier can be manually placed or removed by a
single person without the need for any materials handling equipment.
2.3
The FB11/FB22 barriers are used for larger openings, up to 13 ft (3.96 m) in width. They
also require the pre-installation of mounting frame in the opening. These are lift-out
barriers of sufficient mass that powered materials handling equipment, such as a lift truck
Page 2 of 13
FM APPROVALS
3040412
or crane, are required for installation. After insertion in the frame, the barrier is latched
into place and its inflatable gasket is pneumatically pressurized to seal against the sides
and bottom of the opening.
2.4
The FB44 barrier can also be used for openings up to 13 ft (3.96 m) in width. It also
requires the pre-installation of mounting bracket. In addition, it is hinged to one side of
the mounting frame and can remain permanently in place, in the open position. When
needed, it can be swung shut, latched to the opposite jamb, and sealed by the same type
of inflatable gasket as the FB11/FB22 barriers. Powered material handling equipment is
only required for the initial installation. When in place, it can be easily moved between
the open and closed positions by a single individual.
2.5
All barriers are suitable to prevent water intrusion up to a 3 ft (0.91 m) depth. However,
the building wall should be evaluated to verify that it can also withstand the resulting
hydrostatic load.
2.6
The attached manufacturer’s brochures provide further information on the configuration
of these barriers.
III
EXAMINATIONS AND TESTS
3.1
All evaluations were to the criteria of the referenced sections of Approval Standard 2510.
3.2
Per Section 4.1.1, Examination, the manufacturer provided sample barriers and
components for examination and testing as described for each following evaluation. All
test samples were reviewed against the manufacturer’s drawings and specifications and
judged to be adequately representative of their designs.
3.2
Per Section 4.1.2, Hydrostatic Test Strength, the entire pressure containing envelope of
the inflatable gaskets for the FB11/FB22 and FB44 barriers were tested in an installed
FB44 barrier in a 13 ft (3.96) wide opening. The components of the assembly included
the seal, the pressure gauge, the valve, and the interconnecting fittings and tubing. Since
the maximum rated pressure of this assembly is 30 psi (2.07 bar) the 150 percent required
pressure was 45 psi (3.10 bar). This pressure was applied with air and held for 5 minutes
with no leakage or other evidence of failure. Subsequent to this test, all components
remained intact and functional.
3.3
A System Leakage Test, per Section 4.1.3 was not performed as it was trivial and
redundant to the Hydrostatic Test Strength evaluation for this product, since it requires a
test pressure of 1.2 times rating, as opposed to the 1.5 times requirement of the latter test.
3.4
A Barrier Membrane Water Leakage test per Section 4.1.4 was not required, since these
barriers do not use membranes to prevent leakage. Instead, they use metal structures and
perimeter gaskets.
3.5
Component Durability – Cycling was performed per Section 4.1.5. The tested
components included the jackscrew assembly for the FB33 and DoorDam and the tank
valve for the FB11/FB22 and FB44. These items exhibited no decreased function after
500 cycles of operation.
Page 3 of 13
FM APPROVALS
3040412
3.6
Impact and Wear Resistance testing per Section 4.1.6 was not required as these
assemblies contain no components relevant to these tests.
3.7
The Abrasion Resistance test of Section 4.1.7 was likewise not required since these
assemblies contain no membranes.
3.8
The Vibration Resistance test of Section 4.1.8 was successfully conducted on the
component judged vulnerable to failure under vibration. The J-Brace and Compression
Clip assembly for the FB 33 and DoorDam and the Ball Knob assembly for the
FB11/FB22 and FB44. All components remained fastened during the vibration sequence
and exhibited no loss of function subsequent to this test.
3.9
A Salt Spray Corrosion – Residue Build-Up test was conducted per Section 4.1.9.
Samples included the J-Brace and Compression Clip assembly for the FB 33 and
DoorDam and the Latch Assembly for the FB11/FB22 and FB44. All components
remained fully functional after this exposure.
3.10
The J-Brace and Compression Clip assembly for the FB33 and DoorDam were subjected
to the Environmental Corrosion Resistance test of Section 4.1.10. This assembly
remained fully functional after this exposure.
3.11
The Hail Resistance test of Section 4.1.11 was not required since no membranes are used
in these assemblies.
3.12
The Tensile Strength, Ultimate Elongation, and Tensile Set tests of section 4.1.12 were
conducted on the two sealing materials used in these assemblies. Table 3.12, below,
presents the successful average data.

An Ultraviolet Light and Water Test was conducted per Section 4.1.13. Samples of the
FB11/FB22 and FB44 Seal Skin and FB33 and DoorDam Gasket materials were tested.
Neither material displayed any cracking or crazing as a result of this exposure.
Page 4 of 13

3040412
3.14
An Air Oven Aging Test was conducted per Section 4.1.14. A sample of the Ball Knob
used on the FB11/FB22 barriers was tested. No cracking or crazing was noted
subsequent to this test.
3.15
An Accelerated Aging Test was conducted per Section 4.1.15. Samples of the
FB11/FB22 Seal Skin and FB33 and DoorDam Gasket materials were tested. The
successful average data is shown in Table 3.12, above.
3.16
A Compression Set Test was conducted per Section 4.1.16. Only the FB33 and
DoorDam gasket material was tested because the inflatable gasket material used for the
FB11/22 and FB44 is not under compression when inflated. Compression set averaged
3.2 percent, well under the 15 percent allowable maximum.
3.17
The Extreme Temperature Operation test of Section 4.1.17 was judged to be irrelevant to
the designs of these barriers, since no unfolding of membranes or similar actions are
required to install these barriers.
3.18
The Cap / Valve Locking/Supervision evaluation of Section 4.1.18 was also considered to
be irrelevant to these designs.
3.19
The Tear and Puncture Resistance Test of Section 4.1.19 was also not required, since
these barriers do not employ a sealing membrane.
3.20
The Biological / Degradation Resistance Testing of Section 4.1.20 was also inappropriate
for these barriers, since their few elastomeric components are synthetic materials not
readily sensitive to biological attack.
3.21
The entirety of Section 4.2, Temporary Perimeter Flood Barriers, does not pertain to
these building opening barriers.
3.22
Section 4.3, Opening Barriers, was addressed by testing per its subsections, as described
below.
3.23
Section 4.3.1, Initial Deployment, was evaluated for all barriers. Table

Appendix 1
Approval Guide Listing
The following opening barriers provide protection against riverine flooding up to depths of 3 ft (0.9
m).
DoorDam Removable Flood Panel with compression gasket. For openings up to 3 ft (0.9 m) in
width. Expandable by hand crank to fit multiple openings over a 4 in. (100 mm) range. Can be
installed in three different configurations. A Style 1 installation uses J-Braces and CompressionClips on otherwise unmodified building openings with a recess on the water side of the opening a
minimum of 1 in. (25 mm) wide and with a minimum of 2 in. (50 mm ) deep on either side of
opening. A Style 2 installation uses a Z profile jamb bracket on either side of the opening to
reinforce the corners of the opening and to create the recess wherein the panel is installed. A
Style 3 installation also uses the Z brackets, but mounts them on the face of the wall outside the
opening, requiring a minimum of 1 in. (25 mm) of wall on either side of the opening to support the
panel. All three styles use the J-Braces and Compression-Clips to compress the gasket against
the bottom of the opening.
FB33 Removable Flood Panel with compression gasket. For openings up to 3 ft (0.9 m) in width.
Expandable by hand crank to fit multiple openings over a 4 in. (100 mm) range. The FB33 is
similar to the DoorDam, but offers a heavier construction. Requires pre-installation of jamb
brackets either inside of the opening or on the water side of the wall, with a minimum of 1 in. (25
mm) overlap of the wall on either side of the opening. A variety of bracket arrangements are
available. J-Braces and Compression-Clips are used to compress the gasket against the bottom
of the opening
FB11/FB22 Aluminum Lift-Out Panel with inflatable seals. For openings up to 13 ft (3.96 m)
width. Requires pre-installation of frame, either inside of the opening or on the water side wall
face. Requires a pressurized gas supply to inflate seal. Must be removed and stored to return
opening to service.

Installation When Frame
Will Be Cast In Place
Barrier subframe is placed into the
form of the wall to be cast.
After the concrete has cured, the form
is removed leaving the subframe flush
with the new wall.
The barrier is now ready to be attached
to the subframe according to the
instruction manual.
If the opening that the panel will protect
has not been poured yet, the frame for
the panel can be integrated with the wall
during the pour. This provides an
aesthetically appealing frame that is flush
with the jamb.
If the opening is preexisting, you can
choose a jamb mount frame that mounts
between the existing jambs, or a face
mount jamb that mounts on the wall to
either side of the opening. Both of these
designs are available with a recessed sill
(as an option) that is cut into the
existing floor to prevent a tripping
hazzard.

The FB44 Hinged Flood Barrier provides maximum protection by simply closing a gate! The barrier is
always in place, always ready to go! In the event of a flood condition, simply close the gate, lock the
latch and inflate the seals. The dual redundant
seals provide excellent protection.
For large width openings, dual FB44’s with
attached center mullion provide fast
protection. Simply close the first gate (with
center mullion attached) and seal and secure
the mullion to the ground. After the center
mullion is secured the second gate is closed
and latched. Then inflate the seals. That’s it,
