The Water-Gate™ is a portable, self-inflating, reusable water barrier that can be used in place of traditional methods, such as sandbags, rock, or dirt dams. The Water-Gate™ can be installed or removed in minutes and easily packed and reused for a different application.
The portable barrier can be transported by vehicle to the required site or smaller barriers are light enough to be carried by a person. The Water-Gate™ can be installed by one person, with the barrier available in several lengths and heights and can be linked together to create longer sections.
The Water-Gate™ can be used in multiple situations like flood control, creating reservoirs and dams, waterway diversions and even chemical spill containment.

The barriers come in various lengths ranging from 9.1 m (30 ft) to 15.2m (50 ft) and heights from 0 .15m (½ ft) through 1.5m (5 ft)

1 Effective Flood Protection Height is the
height of water that the barrier will withstand. In the case of the
Aqua-Barrier™ this height includes any wave action.
2 Freeboard is the amount of flood barrier that needs to be above the water level.
3 Overtopping is the ability of the flood barrier to withstand water overflowing the barrier.
4 Base Width is the amount of flat or nearly flat ground needed to support the barrier. It is the flood barrier's effective "width" on the ground.
