AQUIKO Side Hung Doors
AQUIKO Side Hung Doors are manufactured in HDPE and Stainless Steel 316. The intelligent material choice ensures they are lightweight, but not compromised when it comes to strength.
Side Hung Doors also oﬀer the optimum ﬁsh friendly solution. In fact, The Environment Agency Guidelines state “hinged side gates provide the best option for eel passage over a range of ﬂows and are considered to be a good Best Achievable Eel Protection (BAEP) installation choice.”
They oﬀer a reliable and secure ﬂood defence. However, unlike other forms of non-return valve they pose no barrier to ﬁsh migration.
Based on traditional mitre door designs they are a very simple yet eﬀective concept. The water ﬂow pushes them open and closed depending on the ﬂow. Once open, free ﬂow between the two water bodies is possible.
As with all AQUIKO products we have made installation as easy as possible. Usually mounted to a bespoke frame or bolted to the mounting surface using resin anchors, therefore, no grouting is required. Usually ﬁtted within a few hours they oﬀer massive time and cost savings.
Only requiring occasional visual inspection. With self-lubricating hinges no additional greasing is required.
