This is a waterproof protective base for appliances that aims to flood-proof household appliances in the event of sudden flooding. It uses new materials that are lightweight and buoyant. The buoyancy enables the floating plate of the base to rise up according to the rising water level. The floating plate also pulls upwards with it an attached waterproof film that will protect the body of the appliance that is below the flood line.
