SLUICE GATES are designed to be wall-mounted or in recesses of rectangular channels whose depth and width ranges from 300 to 1000mm. They are manufactured in two standard options:
- as manually operated stop-log gates for closing and opening or flow control in case of segment gates. Stop-log gates are the simplest solution as far as shut-off valves are concerned. They are applied when there are no strict water flow control requirements,
- as channel sluice gates for surface water and sewage flow control. Their function consists in shutting off water or sewage flow until a predetermined maximum level is reached. When that happens sluice gates can be lifted, and water or sewage flows under the gate plate – thus the height at which the gate is lifted determines the flow rate.
