Lift-Hinged Flood Gates


Our Lift-Hinged Flood Gates Products

Flood Control International’s design of lift-hinge flood gates utilizes a unique ‘raise-swing-lower’ mechanism and does not require recessed ground channels, raised ground beams or ramps.  This makes the floodgates ideal for vehicle entrances and especially suitable for forklift or wheelchair access.

Even the widest flood gate designs can be operated by one person using the smooth winding lift action and the single point locking mechanism.  The aluminum construction also provides a far higher level of operator safety than heavy steel flood gate products.

Lift-Hinged Flood Gate Integration

These floodgates are available as single or double leaf and they can be integrated with a stop log system for wide openings in flood defenses.  Lift-hinge flood gate products are suitable for use in unmanned locations as they are fully lockable and come complete with anti-theft and vandal resistant features.

The components are manufactured from construction grade steel, stainless steel and aluminum and are virtually maintenance free.

Lift-Hinged Flood Gates

Lift-Hinged Flood Gates Durablity

The FCI flood gate range is designed for extreme weather durability to give a lifetime of service and with EPDM gaskets that reform even after prolonged periods of compression: the gates can, if required, be left closed indefinitely.  Where there is a need for floodgates greater than 14ft wide, we will manufacture the gates in steel to any size.
