Waterman Tilting Weir (Overshot) Gates are an overflow-type gate used to control levels in canals, basins and other agricultural, municipal and industrial applications.
They are an effective replacement to manually-installed check boards or stop logs.
The basic gate design uses a rectangular panel mild steel panel that is mounted to a piano hinge at the forward bottom edge of the gate leaf. This leaf is raised and lowered using a cable drum hoist to control the upstream water level.
Gates are custom-designed to the application and can be ordered for both new construction and replacement installations.
