StormMeister® offers a wide range of innovative products and services dedicated to flood protection

StormMeister® Flood Protection was founded in 2010 by William M Snape with the aim of solving the problems presented by conventional flood doors, which can be difficult to operate and with limited effect.

Since that beginning, StormMeister® product research and development has resulted in a whole range of flood protection products that have helped all kinds of property owners to avert the threat of rising tides, increased rainfall and the effects of climate change. Many of the product innovations produced by StormMeister® utilise a patented Active Flood Seal™ design, which makes use of the pressure created by floodwater to create a watertight seal that protects against the threat of flooding. Active Flood Seals™ result in StormMeister® flood products being easy to operate as the flood seals eliminate the need for heavy locking mechanisms usually required by conventional flood products.
