SAY GOODBYE TO SAND BAGS!
Water-Gate flood barriers have been specially designed to provide unfailing protection against the flooding problems faced by many cities and towns located mainly in flood-prone areas. This innovative and unprecedented intervention equipment combines simplicity, robustness and reliability.
Used around the world, Water-Gate barriers are the perfect alternative to sandbags because they can replace thousands of sandbags in an instant. In addition, they remain stable, regardless of the length and direction of the flow, or the slope of the terrain. Water-Gate barriers can be put in place while the flood is already underway.

How it works
The Water-Gate flood barrier, a flexible, self-deploying water barrier.
Direct water into the barrier
- Water first enters the folds inside the barrier.
- The water pressure opens the barrier completely.
Coming into action
- The barrier is provided with a float which allows the fabric to remain on the surface of the water without letting water pass. The top of the canvas floats to the rhythm of the waves without letting water pass.
Modelled to the terrain
- The accumulated pressure of the water causes the barrier to stabilize and mould to the terrain.
Types of use
The Water-Gate flood barrier is easy to install and requires very little labour to deploy. Ideal for flash floods, sudden water level rises, downpours or any unforeseen event causing the flood. It provides instant protection.
Surface Water Deviation
The Water-Gate barrier allows rapid and safe interventions. This temporary solution is ideal during intervention by fire departments to, among other things, control and divert the path of rainwater, water splash from highways, traffic water, surface water and others.
Protection of Doors and Underground Entrances
Water-Gate flood barriers are available in different sizes that allow them to adapt to different situations. It is possible to install them in the desired location: in front of a door, window, garage, elevator door, parking lot, underground entrance, etc.
The Water-Gate barrier allows rapid intervention in the event of an emergency, such as a water failure. Its portable and light nature guarantees instant use, which should minimize possible damage. During the maintenance of fire hydrants, it allows water to be redirected without affecting traffic or surrounding infrastructure.
The barrier can be installed directly along a bank to prevent overflows. The perfect response to coastal flooding or rising waters.
