Stop Logs

Home / Products / Custom made gates / Stop Logs

The Stop Logs are custom designed steel bulkheads that are used in channels or control structures to hold back the flow of water. They are individually lowered on top of one another via a vertical guide system to a pre-determined height, to suit the dimensions of the sluice that they are restricting the water flow through. The design of the Stop Logs is a single rectangular unit that can be used in single or modular format to hold back different volumes of water.
As a rule, Stop Logs are designed and fabricated to order to achieve the most effective modular increments to suit the requirements of the particular site where they will be employed.
The Stop Logs are fabricated with double sided skin steel plates that are suitably reinforced internally with various steel sections to withstand the water pressures. Vortex Hydra, as part of their design criteria, normally recommend the type of steel to be used, but any special request from the customer can be analysed and agreed on.

The operational system of the gates could consist of the following:
• The smooth raising and lowering of the Stop Logs in their guides to achieve the required overall height is by means of a lifting beam that forms part of a suitable lifting system
• Special operational system defined and agreed with the customer

Sealing System: rubber seals located in the bottom and lateral sides (three sides of each stop log) that seat into a stainless steel sealing frames that are attached to adjacent concrete structure.
All phases of the engineering design and fabrication through to final testing are undertaken by Vortex Hydra in compliance with UNI EN ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
Vortex Hydra design and manufacture Stop Logs having dimensions up to 20 x 1.8m.
