Water Gate

About Water Gate

TPA’s Water-Gate Barrier can be installed in a very short time using only limited resources providing maximum efficiency in any deployment situation.

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 larger 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.

To limit damages from a flash flood or prevent flooding of a shoreline, street or road, it’s possible to cover long distances in just a few minutes with this efficient and simple tool. Water-Gate is a fast deployable flood barrier available in sections of 9.1m or 15.2m. The modular design allows multiple sections to be joined together and/or curbed to the desired length and angle. The costs related to damages by flooding can be quite significant in urban areas, the flood control barrier is the cost effective solution for protecting properties, garages, houses, offices and buildings.
 

TPA provides two series of barriers (WL-WA) with several retention heights making it possible to respond to different situations and budgets, the perfect tool for flood control.
