Gate 1 is made of methacrylate reinforced with a metal skeleton in order to provide enough stiffness and a low weight. The vertical movement of the gate is guided by metal frameworks embedded in the canal and is executed by three-phase servomotors. The gate features in this example are shown in Table 10.
