Our scope of supply of this common mechanism for controlling flow extends from standard cast iron or HDPE flaps in common sizes off the shelf, through to a whole range of bespoke flaps for inland waterways or tidal structures using Stainless Steel, HDPE or fabricated mild steel. There is no upper limit of size of flap available as a custom design option using FEA analysis can always provide the best value option for whatever your requirement. Installation services use our experienced teams working to tight windows afforded by tidal movements, or by temporary dams stop logs, or even working underwater.
For accurate upstream level control, a tilting weir cannot be beaten, and the Waterfront tilting weir combines superior material choices and meticulous design into a low maintenance package that is easy to operate and offers a long, trouble free life. After an initial site survey the entire unit can be delivered to site fully built and can be installed quickly and easily and be fully operational the same day.
Our range of stoplogs extends from small aluminium or stainless sections through to large fabricated steel units wide enough to work in the largest river outlet. Each is designed to comfortably withstand the required backpressure and fit within existing channels or within fabricated guides that can be bolted to the channel wall. Our diving teams can be provided to install the guide channels even in submerged conditions.

Our portfolio of completed projects includes the refurbishment, upgrade or replacement of large custom manufactured water control devices, including radial gates, mitre gates, tilting sluices and vertical sluice gates. Many of these projects have been undertaken on a full turnkey package incorporating all mechanical, civil and electrical installation trades. Refurbishments services also extend to the control gear operating these structures (including gearbox repairs) and upgrading the safe access for maintenance.
No installation can be provided without careful consideration of access for maintenance and inspection and our steel access structures compliment our overall installation package perfectly.
