How to use the Water-Gate™

The Water-Gate™ is quick and easy to use, allowing the barrier to be deployed in a few short minutes.

Unroll in direction of arrows WUnroll and locate Unfold Bib and push into water
1) Simply orient the barrier as shown by the arrows on the roll, so that water flows into the opening when it is deployed 2) Unroll and locate the barrier where desired 3) Unfold the bib and push it down into the water
Place ballast on Water-Gate Water-Gate self inflates  
4) Place the ballast weights, stones/rocks across the front of the bib. The WL model barrier has the weights already attached to the bib 5) The Water-Gate™ will self-inflate and contour to the terrain  

The Water-Gate™ water barrier can be deployed during very cold temperatures. It can resist to ice and to temperatures reaching -40°C. The water barrier can be installed on any surface and will curve to any given angle.

The Water-Gate™ barrier can be used in many situations ranging from flood control and blocking streams and waterways to creating water reservoirs and containing toxic spills (special model required for petrochemicals).

Water-Gate for Flood Control Flood Control
Several sections can be installed together quickly by a single person to create a flood protection barrier of the desired length. Alternatively, the WL model barrier can be deployed from a special crate containing 152m of barrier in less than 2 minutes, giving protection up to 2m.

Water-Gate for Damming Streams Blocking Streams and Waterways
The water barrier can be used to hold block streams and waterways without affecting the environment. This can be used to carry out culvert repairs or construction site dewatering projects

Water-Gate for Reservoirs Creating Water Reservoirs
The Water-Gate™ barrier can be installed in streams to create water reservoirs to meet pumping needs especially with low waterway levels. This can be used by emergency services such as the Fire Service or Civil Defence to create a larger and deeper area to pump from. The barrier is lightweight, easy to deploy and remove.

Pollution Response - Release Hole Version
A modification to the Watergate barrier introduces a Velcro flap covering a series of holes. By removing the Velcro flap and exposing the holes, the cleaner water can flow through the barrier keeping the pollution containment behind the barrier for removal.

An alternative is a new below barrier diverter system, which works on the same principle of allowing the cleaner water to flow through the barrier, containing the pollutants. Water-gate Under Pipe Water-gate with Under Pipe
