When a flash flood occurs, response time is critical. The Water‑Gate™ flood dam can be quickly and easily deployed in three easy steps. The design uses the weight of the incoming floodwater to deploy and stabilize itself. Water enters and accumulates at the bottom of the barrier as the water level rises, causing the barrier to unfold and swell. The water pressure will open the dam and keep it in place, regardless of the nature of the terrain beneath the dam.
Step 1: Unroll the barrier. Step 2: Unfold the first fold. Step 3: Allow the water to accumulate inside.
It is as simple as that.
Yes, any flood carries a more or less quantity of sediment.
Mud does not modify the dam stability or efficiency, even in large quantities.
Yes, the barrier is incredibly resilient and was designed to resist different waves, winds, and objects in the water. It absorbs the energy collision and returns to its original shape.
The wave movement can cause a slight overflow. Resistance to waves and impacts has been tested by the US Army. Watch the video here.
The average life span of a WaterGate flood protection barrier is between 20 and 25 years.
We have limited stock for this use.
Please contact us to consider this possibility.
Yes, we offer delivery service worldwide for our product range.
The WL barrier has a weighted ballast bag that is sewn directly onto the front bib. This ballast bag creates a uniform weight across the length of the dam and molds to the shape of the terrain to limit seepage.
The seepage feature depends on two factors:
Watertightness increases with the flood height and the pressure exerted by the liquid on the floor fabric. The leakage rate is less than 1.06 Gallon (U.S) per min. and per linear meter on the smooth floor (concrete type). If this leakage rate is considered to be too great, it is possible to reduce it considerably by spreading under the leading edge a seal of mastic or silicone cartridge type, or natural products of molasses type
It all depends on the model you choose. We provide barriers from 6-79 inches.
The dam is effective from the first inch of water.
MegaSecur is proud to meet the needs of a vast and diversified Customers.
Our products are dedicated to Public institutions, municipalities, cities, firefighters, emergency responders, civil security, and other first responders, military forces/Army, large companies, SMEs, Very small business. Resident associations, individuals and more.
There is no minimal height. The barrier works from the first water centimeter.
It is the water pressure that causes the dam to open and not the flow or the flood speed.
As with most industrial products, the lack of clear information or recommendations of use from the manufacturer generally contributes to under-utilisation or disappointing performance. The e-Learning was made in the aim of providing Customers with the best tips and advices for a successful, rapid and secure installation.
The average duration of the training is 40 minutes. It is possible to start the training and then finish later. A backup recording is made automatically.

Yes, access to our e-learning gives you full access to all the trainings available.
Yes, the training is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Example: WL-2050 is 20 in high x 50 ft long
You can do the e-learning as a team, however, every team members must absolutely have his own secure access and complete the training by itself.
All WL models with a height exceeding 39″ (1 m) are FM approved.
The overflow diverter, also called a weir or spillway, is installed on the Water-Gate water barrier and allows excess water to be directed downstream, which drains the bottom of the stream. This system replaces a heavy-duty pump and can drain 90 liters per second (1440 US gallons per minute). A plus for the environment!
The WT series is effective whether your emergency involves a run-off of harmful substances from a pipeline, fuel truck accident, train derailment, plane crash, loss of electrical transformer, oil spill, pipes damaged during excavation work or any other accidental hazmat spill.
The WT series is equipped with release holes that can be opened or closed as needed. This allows clear water to run its course while pollutants remain trapped on the surface (underflow dam/overflow dam).
The usage of wooden dowels, styrofoam, and sandbags are required to meet the FM Approved installation due to the measured leakage rate during testing.
Yes, the use of sump pumps is highly recommended. No matter what type of barrier you use, a certain amount of water will always seep into the protected area. This is particularly true in the case of rain.
The barrier is folded into the crate in a concertina style. It needs to be repacked correctly in order to be ready for the next deployment. We recommend completing the e-learning for this use.
