When there is a significant opening in need of flood protection or requires vehicular access, a flood gate can provide a strong and complete flood defence whilst only requiring a single person to deploy.
These defences can be incorporated directly into new defence walls or installed as secondary fixed flood gates onto existing structures. The product is designed to withstand a significant static head of water as well as any other forces it is likely to encounter, such as impact debris and wave motions.
To ensure compliance with customer and design specifications and to verify the integrity of the structure securing the product, each gate comes with a full set of design calculations from a chartered structural engineer.
As you can see, the gate can be finished in a variety of styles to blend in with the existing aesthetic of the site. They are available as single or double swinging and can be fitted with hydraulics for ease of opening and closing.
