Cuirassier, flood barrier expert
Cuirassier was born in 2016 in France and is based near Poitiers.
Our mission: Design, Produce and Distribute this unique mobile flood barrier system.
The company’s activities are based on a patent portfolio policy developed by Luc Nguyen Van, founder of Cuirassier. Concerned about the climate and facing increasingly violent climatic events, Luc has been “on the lookout” for temporary protection for a long time. This solution was developed with the support of the UTC (Université de Technologie de Compiègne) where a whole team of engineers worked on and validated the principle of the flood protection module. It was then optimized by the design office of our industrial partner, who specialises in the automotive and aerospace sectors.
In 2016, the first patent was granted, and four others additional have been granted.
In 2021, Cuirassier was a CeremaLab award winner, a program that supports innovative SMEs and start-ups in the development of projects that impact territories.
In 2022, Cuirassier performs pre-tests at the ERDC (Engineer Research and Development Center) of the US Army Corp of Engineer.

In 2023, we are positioning ourselves to pass the American FM Approvals ANSI/FM2510 standard, which tests flood control equipment. This is the most rigorous standard to date on the world market. Established by the international insurance company FM Global, this standard is the reference for all insurers worldwide.
