Flooding issues? Choose the Water-Gate solution
SSI Environmental is the leading Irish distributor of Water-Gate water dams – a solution for flooding, spills and work in submerged areas.
Water-Gate barriers can be installed easily and enable to retain up to 6 ft high. No anchoring nor filling is required. These water barriers are FM Approved, which guarantees exceptional quality and efficiency. This first response equipment is reusable and its lifespan ranges between 20-25 years. Stay away from flooding issues, every time and everywhere you go.
Flood protection like never before
Part of the WL-Series, the Water‑Gate flood protection dam is specifically designed to provide full protection against flooding issues faced by cities and municipalities across the world. This unique and innovative flood response equipment combines simplicity, robustness, and effectiveness.
Safe and rapid intervention
The Water-Gate flood protection system is a turnkey solution, ready for use right out of the box. No water filling, air inflation or anchoring is required.
It is known for its simplicity and ability to be deployed quickly. To use it, just unroll the barrier, unfold the front part and let the water accumulates. The water pressure will cause the barrier to deploy and secure itself in place.
Say goodbye to sandbags!
Water-Gate flood protection dams are considered by many to be the perfect alternative to sandbags – as a single dam enables to replace thousands of sandbags. In addition, the Water‑Gate flood dam adapts to every situation and remains stable regardless of its extended length, direction of water flow, or slope of the ground. Water‑Gate flood protection dams are built to the highest quality and may even be installed while the flood is already in progress.
How it works:
The Water‑Gate flood protection dam comes as a PVC roll. The design uses the weight of the incoming floodwater to deploy and stabilize itself. Water enters and accumulates at the bottom of the barrier as the water level rises, causing the barrier to unfold and swell. The lightweight design allows for timely intervention in remote or hard‑to‑access environments.
WL-Series models have retention heights ranging from 6″ to 60″ (15 cm to 152 cm).
Flood control is now faster and easier than ever!
Flexible flood protection system:
The barrier is flexible enough to create inner or external corners and most type of configurations. In addition, once deployed, the barrier will not lock you in and the set-up barriers will not prevent crossing over. Walkers and motorists can move freely in both directions, whether it is before, during or after the barrier is deployed.
