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…
KSU Precast tilting weirs
- Quick and Easy to install
- Ultimate variation of weir level
- Virtually maintenance free
- Vandal resistant
- Low environmental impact
ACE Tilting weirs offer ultimate variability and precision in water level management, making them ideal either for manual or automated applications. Commonly used in conservation areas, land drainage and large river systems, ACE tilting weirs have a wide range of applications, all with safety, ease of operation and low requirement for maintenance part of their core design.
The KSU precast tilting weir and KSU Compact tilting weir have additional benefits, as in a pre-cast concrete housing, it becomes even quicker to install, even more resistant to vandalism, and possible to bury in the ground to reduce visual impact.
The KSU precast housing not only allows the unit to be a single-lift installation, it also vastly reduces construction time as it is already a structure in itself, and if desired, it can be coupled to pipes. If used in a channel, the construction to tie-in with the banks can be carried out with sheet-piles, bricks, or concrete, making for a very neat structure.
Due to the off-site casting of the housing the KSU Precast tilting weir vastly reduces the risk of concrete pollution into the watercourse, reduces the time and cost of mobilisation to site, and ensures a higher level of quality.
The KSU Compact is available from stock with a 1m x 1m weir, housed in a very compact pre-cast housing, keeping transport and lifting costs to a minimum. Larger sizes are also available to order as KSU precast tilting weirs.
ACE KSU Precast tilting weirs are quick and easy to fit, however as with all ACE equipment, ACE offer a full installation service- please contact us for more details.
