AWMA’s Self Regulating Tidal Gate operates via floatation to autonomously manage storm water retention basins, preventing salt water intrusion and flooding.
- Typically used to prevent upstream saline intrusion in storm water retention basins.
- Self-regulating, according to a pre-determined head differential.
- A 25 year design life in demanding conditions.
- The gate is centrally hinged and operates via floatation for automatic positioning, enabling optimal stormwater retention or flow requirements.
- Instantaneous response time.
- Guaranteed failsafe opening.
- Functions autonomously without operator intervention.
Residential, commercial, environmental protection barrier from salt water intrusion and flood water, as well as enhancing storm water harvesting opportunities:
- Wetland Entry/exit points
- Storm Water Harvesting
- Tidal Water Intrusion zones
- Flood water diversions
AWMA's design team provide full support to project partners, ensuring the product delivered will be engineered and certified to withstand worse case scenarios for expected flood water height, debris loading, flow redirection requirements etc. Design considerations also include the condition of the nominated site. For water control infrastructure to maintain structural integrity it must be well supported and correctly installed.
Preliminary designs provide all parties with a platform to explore opportunities to increase the effectiveness of the flood barriers in regards to the exact installation conditions, operational requirements and gate specifications. AWMA have the ability to facilitate such activities, with a proven track record of delivering products and systems which are relied upon to provide protection to people and property, often on a daily basis.
