Stop Gate and Stop Plate are interchangeable terms used to identify manually lifted gates that are installed in open channels. Stop gates are normally either in or out and do not include a stem or lifting mechanism. Smaller gates or gates with a balance (equalized) head can usually be raised by hand. Larger gates and gates with unbalanced head often require a mechanical lifting device such as a hoist or davit crane.
Stop Gate Design Specifications:
Plasti-Fab stop gates are individually molded using fiberglass reinforced polyester resin containing UV inhibitors to the exact size required for each application. Most stop gates utilize a sandwich construction with a closed-cell polyisocyanurate foam core for high strength and corrosion resistance. A totally encapsulate internal steel structural matrix is often used to meet deflection requirements for larger gates. The frames are constructed from Plasti-Fab designed FRP pultrusions with polymeric fiber surfacing material and UV inhibitors for high corrosion resistance. Guides may be embedded, surface mounted or in-channel mounted.
