AWMA Layflat (also known as Drop Leaf) Gates are an overshot regulating structure that provides a full waterway opening.
They are an efficient and effective replacement for existing Drop-Bar structures and are most commonly used as a mid-channel regulating structure. AWMA Layflat Gates can be manually operated or they can utilise powered actuators - either way, the OH&S problems associated with Drop-Bar structures are removed.
As with all AWMA Gates, the Layflat Gate is designed to replace existing structures with little or no civil works. Not only are they easy to install, but they are easy to operate, are 100% water tight and are maintenance-free. They can even be automated at a later date.
AWMA Layflat Gates are made from marine grade aluminium with no incompatible materials - so corrosion problems won't occur. They are also supplied with an opening gauge for monitoring water flow.
