All parts of the gate shall have a minimum thickness of 1/4 inch. Gates shall be designed for embed or in-channel mounting as shown on drawings.

The gate frame shall be extruded aluminum. The guide grooves in which the head guide angle travel shall contain ultra high molecular weight polyethylene bearing strips/seals in dovetail slots.

The frame configuration shall be of the flush-bottom type and shall allow the replacement of the side seals without removing the gate frame from the wall.

The slide shall consist of aluminum plate reinforced with "U" shaped aluminum extrusion welded to the plate to limit its deflection to 1/360 of the gate's span under the design head.

Guides and Seals
The guides and seals shall be of UHMW.

The flush bottom resilient neoprene seal shall be mounted to the frame.
