Rubber profiles for (renovation) Weir combination Nederrijn and Lek

Rubber profiles for (renovation) Weir combination Nederrijn and Lek

The weir combination in the Nederrijn and Lek by is under renovation at this moment. The weir combination consists of three weir complexes located at Hagestein, Amerongen and Driel. Ridderflex also made a contribution to this project: we supplied various rubber profiles for the visor gates.

The renovation includes the replacement of technical installations and movable parts of the dams and locks.

The renovation of the weir combination

The visor gates – the huge steel arches – are the eye-cather of the complex. In total, 6 pieces will be replaced on the weir combination until mid-2019. Replacing these visor gates is a huge task. Each visor gate weighs 270 tons, has a diameter of 48 meters and a height of 9 meters. Recently, the first visor gate – with Ridderflex profiles – has been replaced successfully in Amerongen.

Various grades of rubber profiles

Ridderflex supplies an extensive range of profiles in different materials, types, hardnesses and dimensions. We can customise rubber profiles according to your specifications and in the desired material. For example in an oil-resistant quality or in a material that is resistant to sea water or chemicals.

Our profiles are used in various industries and in different applications. Are you curious about the possibilities? Please contact our sales department.
