Swing-Hinged Flood Gates


Our Swing-Hinged Flood Gates

Our swing-hinge flood gates are ideal for openings where there is a step or ramp.  The aluminum construction results in a lightweight and easy to use gate that provides full flood protection.

These flood gates are designed for extreme weather durability to give a lifetime of service; the custom gaskets are designed to reform after prolonged compression, the gates are lockable and have anti-theft and vandal resistant features.

Swing-Hinged Flood Gates

Swing-hinge flood gates provide either flooding protection or chemical containment in bunded areas.  The gates are securely sealed with 2 or 3 lever type locking handles.  The precision engineered hinges allow the gates to open the full 180° and this can be further extended to 270° with modification.

With the use of a removable centre support the swing-hinged flood protection gates can be paired to provide protection for wider openings.
