Baycast Foundry has been manufacturing the Baycast range of floodgates at our Mount Maunganui premises since 1986.
Baycast floodgates are designed for fixing direct to a headwall or can be pipe end fixed with the use of ‘L’ Bolts (as per our fixing sheet).
Note: Fixing bolts may be galvanised or stainless as specified by the site engineer.
Our floodgates are cast using LM6 marine grade aluminium alloy for the flap and frame while the pivot arms are cast in AB1 (aluminium bronze) and assembled using 304 grade stainless steel pins.
The gates are designed to be robust and maintenance free, other than the removal of debris and sediment from time to time.
In the unlikely advent of a problem with a Baycast floodgate we are able to offer replacement parts as required.
The gate will automatically open and close with the water flow, however it can also be mechanically or manually operated by means of a chain fixed to the Lug at the bottom of the face side of the Flap.
