Fabricated Slide Gates
What are the benefits of going with a slide gate instead of a cast iron sluice gate? Check below for a few reason we might recommend slide gates over a traditional sluice gate. Please contact us if you have any more questions!
These types of gates are a much lighter construction and are available in several materials or combinations.
For example they're available in:
- Fabricated stainless steel
- Fabricated aluminum
- Fiberglass resin
- Fabricated carbon steel
- High density plastic resin
Most manufacturers use rubber or ultra high molecular weight polyethalene (UHMW) as a sealing system
Easy to Replace/Repair
Depending on the manufacturer, several makes of fabricated gates are good candidates for seal repair or seal replacement.
Fabricated gates are considerably less expensive in comparison to cast iron sluice gates.
They serve best when installed in locations where they function as “normally open” or “normally closed” isolation gates and less demanding environments.
