Basement flood ring but rectangular?

Hello,
I'd like to section off an area of about 5 foot by 5 foot with a short flood wall around my boiler and water heater. Then I would put a pump in that area. This is just a precautionary project.

I love the idea of the water heater basement flood ring.

Does anyone know of straight panels I could use to create a rectangular area instead of round?

Thanks

Sample ring pictures below.

I wouldn't call that thing a flood ring. It may stop some water but certainly not a flood. You would be much better off with a high water alarm. Why do you think that you may have a flood?

Yes, I'm looking to build a short wall around my boiler and water heater to contain any water that might spill out of those vessels in an emergency situation. I would then sit an auto sump in that location with a hose to a drain on the other side of the basement. This would be a precautionary measure before I remodel the basement. I've been told I can use pressure treated wood, thick plastic angle pieces and epoxy to build something. Thank you for your thoughts.

None of that is waterproof. It's a false sense of security.
