One Man Operational (OMO) Flood Gates

In riverside and coastal locations, One Man Operational (OMO) Flood Gates are a particularly effective solution. Ease of installation, ease of maintenance and ease of operation mean we regularly recommend them as part of our flood protection solutions.


Picture shows OMO Flood Gate installed in Huddersfield. 

The One Man Operational (OMO) Flood Gate is a horizontally swinging flood gate that can be controlled manually or via hydraulics or electrics. It has an engineered latch which is designed to lock the gate in seconds.

There are none of the high on-going expenses associated with other manually operated systems; the gate only requires service and visual checks once installed.

Single OMO Flood Gates can be made up to 4m wide x 2m high, and double can be made up to 8m wide x 2m high. Other sizes can be checked by a UKFB Structural Engineer for bespoke design and manufacture - get in touch for more information.
