Crest Gates

The most effective spillway gate for regulating water level and passage of debris and ice. Steel Fab is the leading manufacturer of crest gates in North America.

Fixed Cone Valves

The ideal choice for energy dissipating outlet works applications. Sizes can range from 8 to 102 inches for both free discharge and submerged applications.

Wire Rope Hoists

Dedicated or mobile, custom wire rope hoists are the most common and reliable gate operating system when gate size and lifting capacity are of concern.
