TMI Coatings Repairs Corrosion Damage on Tainter Gates in Texas

 

TMI Coatings repaired damage due to corrosion on five existing tainter gates at Lake Fork Spillway for Sabine River Authority of Texas.

TMI workmen remained tied off using OSHA approved full body safety harnesses at all times while working on the spillway below the tainter gates. Safety netting was implemented below the work at each gate to prevent anything from falling through to the concrete surface of the spillway and into the river below.

TMI removed and replaced the entire bottom of the gate structural steel including the existing shim plates, stiffeners, angles, braces and associated structural steel. TMI sandblasted, primed and finish coated the reconditioned tainter gates. After steel repairs and recoating, TMI installed all new seals.
