  • Cast or fabricated, rigid or flexible designs
  • Circular or rectangular opening upto 96′ for gravity flow
 Backflow Prevention in Free Discharge Applications
Gravity Operated

Minimal water pressure is needed for operation as the flap gate functions utilizing gravity. The flap opens when the head in the pipe, or conduit, exceeds 0.2 feet (0.6m) above the head in the receiving body of water. The flap closes when the head in the receiving body of water exceeds the head in the pipe or conduit. There is minimal head loss when fully open.

Low Leakage

Cast iron to resilient or bronze-to-bronze seating is available on cast iron flap gates, and resilient to stainless steel seating on fabricated flap gates. Both provide a tight seal for low leakage when closed.

Cast or Fabricated

Depending on application, installation, and preferences, flap gates are available in high strength stainless steel (ASTM A-240 Type 304L or 316L) or cast iron (A126 Class B).

Low Maintenance

All flap gate models offer high corrosion resistance, low maintenance, and a variety of mounting options.
