When more than one hose branch is being used, it is advisable to close off all the inactive lines using these gates to ensure maximum airflow along the active line.
These aluminium blast gates are far stronger than the plastic ones and are therefore more suitable to a trade or professional environment.
The centre plate simply slides between the open and closed position and can be locked in position.
The blast gate has two 100mm (4") connections. Our 100mm hose can be connected directly and secured with a hose clamp, 100HC.
Blast gates can be attached directly to a 100mm diameter outlet on a machine using a tapered joining sleeve, 100SL.
Gates are also commonly attached to a splitter (T-Branch or Y-Branch) using a tapered joining sleeve.
You can mount the gate wherever is the most convenient position or wall mount using our bracket, GWM.
