• Water-Gate barrier can be

1. Effective Flood Protection Height is the height of water that the barrier will withstand. In the case of the Aqua-barrierTM this height includes any wave action. 2. Freeboard is the amount of flood barrier that needs to be above the water level. 3. Overtopping is the ability of the flood barrier to withstand water overflowing the barrier. 4. Base Width is the amount of flat or nearly flat ground needed to support the barrier. It is the flood barrier's effective "width" on the ground.

transported and installed in just minutes.

To limit damages from a flash flood or prevent flooding of a shoreline, street or road, it’s possible to cover long distances in just a few minutes with this efficient and simple tool. Water-Gate is a fast deployable flood barrier available in sections of 9.1m or 15.2m. The modular design allows multiple sections to be joined together and/or curbed to the desired length and angle. The costs related to damages by flooding can be quite significant in urban areas, the flood control barrier is the cost effective solution for protecting properties, garages, houses, offices and buildings. TPA provides two series of barriers (WL-WA) with several retention heights making it possible to respond to different situations and budgets, the perfect tool for flood control.
