Gat-se-Deksel Borehole pump protection

Theft of Borehole Pumps is a reality. We have a range of solutions available to secure borehole pumps:

Gat-Se-Dekseltm is an 8mm thick Stainless Steel lid system that is installed around the borehole casing, and protects the borehole pump from theft and damage. The lid is locked in place with a unique and patented 360 degree lock ring and tolerances between the lid and housing is very small to prevent insertion of prying tools.

The water pipes and electrical cables can exit the system either through the top lid, or through the side of the housing. The housing is secured with concrete around the borehole casing. A high security lock barrel is used to protect the lid from unauthorised entry. Multiple lids can be keyed alike. The lock barrel is encased in a stainless steel housing to prevent damage to the lock.

The lid is fitted with internal hanger points where suspension cables can be attached to carry the weight of the pump and water pipe.

This product is also highly suited for monitoring boreholes, where the lid allows easy access for dip probes, or permanently instrumented boreholes.

Secure concrete field hut / pump station

Larger borehole installations requires securing of the pump (either submerged or surface mount), electrical controls, power supply solutions (possibly a generator) and sometimes remote control systems. In addition, filters, pressure valves and control valves must also be secured.

For this application the maximum security precast concrete secure field hut (Secure concrete pump station) is an ideal solution. We have both medium and ultra security versions available.

precast concrete borehole pumpstation   


Features:

  • Maximum security with specialised high strength concrete panels
  • Quick installation due to the pre-cast nature. Only a level compaced ground surface is required.
  • Internal security brackets
  • Multiple internal attachment points to mount equipment such as pumps and pipes
  • Optional secure ventilation ports

Ultra Manhole Cover

The Ultra Manhole Cover is a stainless steel access cover that has been used very successfully at mines in South Africa to secure larger borehole pumps. 

The lid features:

  • a 10mm thick top plate and high security lock which is easy to unlock, but very difficult to damage or break into. 
  • The manhole cover uses our unique patented 360 lock ring technology and the lid sits flush with the manhole cover body. 
  • A 600mm opening is available when the lid is removed. 
  • The frame is cast into a concrete block.
