Less likely to jam than plastic blast gates.

Overview

Heavy-duty construction is longer lasting and less likely to jam than plastic blast gates. Designed to fit inside the 2-1/2" clear flexible hose.

For more simple, convenient, and stable operation, use our Blast Gate Wall Bracket. It attaches to both the wall and gate, eliminating the sloppy hose movement that occurs when opening an unanchored blast gate.

Metal gates are the only way...

Mark B from West Warwick, RI Posted June 12, 2011
Metal gates are the only way to go,even if you are using plastic pipe and hose like I do. Longer flanges would make dust collector system a little cheaper to put together, but you can find fittings that make putting your system together work well Rather be spending my money on other stuff, but my health and a safe shop come at a cost. I plan to buy more soon to complete my system. Rockler has everything you will need.

Gate Clearances

Gate is shipped without mounting. Used 3/4" angle aluminum that worked well. Big problem is that the gate is not sealed and has a large opening at the bottom that allows for a lot of leakage and reduced vacuum availability. Have tried to seal with silicon. The two plastic gates failed after 6 months of service with one splitting apart and gate splitting on the other.

The flanges on these as well...

Alfred C from Kennesaw, GA Posted April 18, 2011
The flanges on these as well as the 4" blast gates are not long enough to use the 2 1/2 inch hose clamps 29509 without some real squeezing by you. You almost need three hands but if the flange were a half inch longer, it would be so easy.
