Pivot Flood Gates

FLOOD GATES

Our Pivot Flood Gates

Convenience and rapid operation make FCI’s pivot flood control gates the ideal flash flood defense or chemical spill containment barrier.

The precision gas lift mechanism enables the gate to be effortlessly raised and lowered and the single point locking system clamps the pivot gate in place at the turn of a lever.

Automated or semi-automatic flood pivot gates can be triggered by fire alarm, smoke detectors, heat detectors or water detectors or push button controlled for daily use.

Pivot Flood Gates for Protection

Specifically designed as flood protection for loading bays and wide openings, the pivot flood gate supports are custom manufactured to clear any existing obstacles, roller shutters, crash bars etc, and the raised flood gate is safely positioned to the side of the opening leaving the access totally free.

Patented gaskets are designed to resist clogging and to reform after prolonged periods of compression making the system ideal for long term and semi-permanent flood defense installation.  These flood control gates are available for flood protection heights between 7.8” and 23.6” as standard and higher or custom systems are possible dependent on span requirements and location.

Dual Pivot Flood Gates

A single pivot flood gate can protect openings in flood defenses up to 14ft wide and dual flood gates can be linked with a removable central support for wider apertures.  A manual slot-in version of the system is also available for use in locations with insufficient space at the side of the opening to install a pivot flood gate.
