Sliding Pocket Gate (SPG(I)-500)
The SAK model SPG(I)-500 Sliding Pocket Gate was designed for openings where swing room is not available for a hinged gate or the system needs to be concealed. The trench mount sill design is ideal for projects where a smooth threshold is required. If a surface mount sill is required, see SAK model SPG-500-SMS.
The SPG(I)-500 Sliding Pocket Gate provides that instant access when fast deployment is required in a flash flood situation.
Sealing the SPG(I)-500 Sliding Panel to its frame assembly is done by inflatable seals. The inflatable seal design is more preferred on particularly large gates eliminating the issues with seal binding that can take place on larger sliding gates with compression seals. The dual inflatable seal design provides redundancy in the event one of the seals are damaged. Inflation of the seals can be achieved by the standard manual inflation using a portable manual or electric air pump. An optional compressed Nitrogen tank with control valves is available, or the system can be designed for the customer to run air lines to the optional control panel.
The standard frame and gate is steel with a painted finish. Optional Aluminum and Stainless Steel is available for the frame assembly and gate.
