Lock gates

Traditionally, lock gates have always been made from timber. In days gone by, these would have been Oak, but now Azobé and Tali are widely used. These are types of wood which have high mechanical characteristics and a long lifespan.

Lock gates

Lock gate manufacture requires specialist skills which Wijma has held over many decades. We design lock gates in-house and we put together renovation plans for existing ones.
