Water-Gate Cross Section

Use the weight of water to hold it back!

Depending on the model, the weight exerted by the water is up to four times more in the vertical than horizontal, thus ensuring the security of the barrier on the ground. It has been designed and tested to work on surfaces including gravel, grass, asphalt, etc.

Create a containment dam in record time, wherever you need.

The WL Water-Gate barrier can be used on land to control or divert fire water runoff. The barrier can effectively divert, contain or control polluted water or chemical spills.

The barrier can be used to divert foul water away from a watercourse.

The WL model is our most popular water barrier. It is very hardwearing and designed for regular use with fast deployment. It has built in weights along the leading edge as ballast, and once rolled out is ready for use. The WL barrier is used by Councils, Water Companies, the Environment Agency, residents and anyone with infrastructure to protect.

Uses include:

  • Emergency Protection
  • Controlling Chemical Spills
  • Diverting Pollution
  • Controlling Fire Water Runoff

In Action

What our clients say

“The Water-Gates performed effectively in trials and they would have helped to enable polluted water to be transported away from the risk area. The Water-Gates are ideal for this type of project and would have minimised any further risks of pollution if used in anger.”
