There are two types of wall barrier system which are permanent and mobile wall. Permanent flood wall barrier are widely applied in the water prone area. However, the permanent structure may need a huge space and higher cost. For mobile flood wall barrier, it helps avoiding flood from entering the houses and premises especially during flash flood in urban area where the space is limited to build a permanent flood wall.

This flood wall barrier has advantages and disadvantages depending on the place of installation, type of material used and size of the wall itself.
