The Acquastop Classic Swing line has been designed to permanently protect garages, gardens and other spaces from flooding.
Classic Swing gates are suitable for protecting all areas subject to frequent flooding, avoiding the need to continuously position and remove barriers.
The practical and safe flood-prevention solution
Classic Swing flood gates are composed of Acquastop Classic barriers firmly attached to the door frame with special hinges that facilitate opening and closing.
This solution is ideal for areas prone to frequent flooding and for buildings inhabited by the elderly or the disabled, situations in which the positioning of barriers may prove complicated.
The flood barrier is composed of a barrier from the Classic series that, thanks to the EasyStop system, allows the barrier to extend, ensuring the correct amount of pressure between the seals and the frame, and therefore guaranteeing water tightness.
EasyStop® is an exclusive patented system that means the barrier can be easily opened and closed by anyone.
Inwards opening and lifting of the barrier
Thanks to the mobile end section, the Classic Swing gate can open inwards, guaranteeing perfect water tightness.
As the gate opens inwards it does not invade any space external to the property when opened, an important feature when the gate is on a roadside or, more in general, in situations in which an outwards-opening gate may be hazardous.
Special hinges designed by the Acquastop® technicians facilitate the opening of the gate, as the barrier lifts when opening to avoid the bottom seal from scraping on the ground. Consequently, less force is required to open the gate and the seal is protected, correctly fitting into place when the barrier is closed.
One- or two-panel flood gates
The Classic Swing gate can be made to a length of up to 300 cm (and 145 cm in height), but if required, or to cover a wider space, two-panel gates can be made, thanks to the addition of a removable stanchion.
Two-panel solutions are therefore adopted for large gates or in all cases when a double opening is preferable, for example with heavy foot traffic.
This mobile element is required to connect barriers, takes the form of a shaped slot and fits firmly to the ground in a simple and effort-free manner. The element can be quickly and just as easily removed, and the base slot is covered with a fitted metal piece.
