Water-Gate in place for flood protection

Water-Gate™ Self-inflating Barrier

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.


Water-Gate can be carried by one person

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 to an impressive 2.0m (6 ½ 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.
