Save Time and Money on Aquatic Works - Flood Protection Solutions

Posted 06. 03. 2019

Traditionally, In-Water-Works have been time consuming, with hundreds of sandbags, or sheet piling required. The Water-Gate changes this. It is used around the World as a temporary cofferdam enabling works to be completed quickly and easily – and best of all, the system is 100% reusable too, meaning in can be used on a variety of projects.

Water-Gate flexible cofferdams can be used to allow maintenance of waterways, including creating a dry working area for hydro and ecological works.

It uses the weight of the water to hold the water back. The water lifts the top of the barrier whilst at the same time weighing the base down, forming a seal. By utilising this unique self-opening method, it reduces the time, effort and number of people required to install it, making this a truly rapid water diversion barrier.


It is highly portable and takes up limited storage space. The system is highly effective in strength, stability, function, ease of deployment and storage when compared with other flood defence products on the market such as sandbags, water filled barriers, booms etc. It is very versatile and can be used on flat or uneven surfaces.

Water-Gates can be used on a variety of projects:

  • Repairing structures
  • Underpinning
  • Reinforcing river supports
  • Re-pointing
  • Ecological works
  • Renovating banks
  • Draining feeder canals
  • De-silting works

The system can be used in conjunction with an Overflow Diverter Tunnel to replace over-pumping for in-water works.

The barrier has been used in water with flows of up to 1m/s!

Supplied with Generic RAMS and Engineering Calculations, make Water-Gate your 1st choice in 2019.
