As part of the construction of a Hydro Turbine Station at Radyr Weir, ACE were employed to provide a bespoke Flood Gate and Weir Penstock…
Sliding flood doors
- Reliable flood protection, quick to deploy
- Deployed by one person
- Easy to service, low maintenance
- Secure and compact locking system
- No special tools required
During an impending flood event, resources are usually stretched and with bad weather conditions and the added pressure of speed, the deployment of flood defences needs to be quick, easy and reliable. Traditional use of sandbags is very labour and time consuming, and requires experience to ensure the defence is robust. To ease this pressure, ACE supply a range of flood doors for quick and simple deployment with minimal training, by one person.
ACE sliding flood doors are designed using a unique guide arrangement, which is simple and effective at making the deployment of our flood gates very easy, even when the door weight is substantial. The gate sits on two wheel assemblies that are simply retracted once deployed, ensuring that the seals are not worn during movement. The flood doors need no special tools to operate, and are balanced so that they can be pushed out by one person with minimal effort.
The wheel arrangement, along with an integral service position, allows easy changing of seals if they do get worn, and can be secured in the open and closed positions to prevent unauthorised use and vandalism.
