Temporary cofferdams are sometimes needed when working in areas under water. Water-Gate temporary cofferdams are used to isolate and temporarily dry a work area to ensure the safety of workers. They are versatile and very simple to use. Many users consider is to be the fastest and safer temporary cofferdam in the market. In addition, minimal equipment is required for the installation.
Temporary cofferdams make it significantly easier to work in hydrous areas because they allow workers to operate in a dry environment. Pumps, weirs, pipelines, and other equipment can be used with temporary cofferdams so that the water flows freely while the work is being done.
There are many cofferdams available on the market. It is nonetheless important to opt for a solution that does not harm the water quality, wildlife, or surrounding areas when the equipment is installed or taken down or the area is restored.
In urban environments, the Water-Gate flood protection dam is very suitable with underground garages, homes, government buildings, malls or other types of protection. Its lightweight eases very much emergency interventions in rural or hard-to-reach areas.
On average, the time required to install a medium-sized barrier is less than five (5) minutes. Considering the time and effort it takes to install sandbags and other systems our system is much more practical and effective. It deploys with the incoming water and does not completely limit the traffic to the protected area.
MegaSecur™ has designed portable cofferdams that can be used to dry or divert watercourses and ponds. Compared with other systems, the Water-Gate™ WA Series is faster to install/dismantle and less prone to punctures. The barrier remains stable and secure even when there are water overflows. The Water-Gate™ WA Series can be deployed in mere minutes and requires no additional hardware for installation or dismantling, reducing the risk of contamination from mechanical parts (grease, oil, concrete, fuel, etc.).
With Water-Gate™ WA Series barriers, the cofferdam can be installed without harming the environment. Once the work is done, the water resumes its natural flow, and the site is left intact and in its natural state.
The Water-Gate barriers can perfectly be joined together, which essentially allows for connecting together different models and sizes.
In order to conform with different budgets, MegaSecur has developed several models with different retention height and length. All the barriers are customizable according to the client’s needs.
The Water-Gate barrier molds itself to the shape of the terrain, thus making possible interventions in rocky soil or uneven surfaces.
The Water-Gate barrier is a turnkey solution, ready to be used from its delivery. No water filling, no air inflation or anchoring is required. Simply unroll the barrier, unfold the front side and let the water accumulates inside.
After using the barrier, simply rinse it with a pressure washer and a suitable disinfectant. Once the barrier is completely dry, simply fold it back and place it back in its storage bag or deployment crate for future use. Avoid long-term exposure to UV rays.
The Water-Gate barrier is flexible enough to create inner or external corners and most type of configurations. In addition, once deployed, the barriers will not lock you in and the set-up will not prevent crossing over. Walkers and motorists can move freely in both directions, whether it is before, during or after the barrier is deployed.
