Global Secur is a young emergency equipment distribution company that was started thanks to a visionary who wanted to change the destiny of local residents. Veronick Raymond actually witnessed the tragic fate of the victims of the city of Rigaud in 2017, which included some of her friends. Thousands of dollars in losses, irretrievable memories and lives turned upside down are significant events that the entrepreneur will never forget.
These unfortunate findings alone prompted her to create the promising project that we know today: Global Secure Quebec. Feeling called, Veronick worked on her project for a year by knocking on several doors and working hard to set everything in motion in record time. Her determination and vision would have amazed many during the break-in period! That’s because she considers the skills and specialization of each person as a strategic asset, as she already has an impressive repertoire of skills. Offering products and services that she fully believes in lends to her appeal to an ever-growing clientele. Her well-structured company has not ceased to evolve, as she is a CEO with a head full of new ideas and an ambitious team that holds the reins of a growing dream.
MegaSecur is the main manufacturer and distributor of Water-Gate dams. Their headquarters are located in Victoriaville (Quebec), Canada. The prototype of the Water-Gate flood barrier that we know today was first put on the market by its designer Daniel Déry in 1998. The dam has since accumulated an impressive number of prestigious prizes for its ingenious design and proven effectiveness. In 2005, a large distribution network was taking shape and Water-Gate began being used and sold in several countries.
To date, it has sold more than 55 km of barriers in more than 37 countries and its product has a gratifying customer satisfaction rate of 98%. Water-Gate is considered to be the most efficient and practical choice of intervention equipment on the market by many experts such as engineers, contractors, entrepreneurs and emergency responders.
Who uses Water-Gate?
Residents at risk of flooding during spring freshet.
Citizens living in areas considered at-risk in the event of flash floods. They can use Water-Gate to protect their garage door and even basement windows.
Our products are used by various industries such as mining. Dams can be useful for securing cleaning perimeters or isolating contaminated areas.
Firefighters can use Water-Gate as a dam in streams; the accumulated water can be pumped out to extinguish fires.
Contractors also use our range for work such as excavations and foundations under bridges, in waterways.
Various, more specialized construction work may require the use of Water-Gate, e.g. for water filtration work or basin transfers.
Water-Gate WA Series
Versatile products from our Industrial Series meet the needs of a wide-ranging and diverse clientele in the industrial, commercial, medical, municipal, government, airport, military and even recreational industries. They provide interesting options for mitigating pollution incidents, for water diversion needs, performing aquatic work, planning water intake structures to fight fires and much more.
Flood Barrier Operation
The WA series Water-Gate flood barriers have the same control, protection and prevention benefits as the WL series but are specifically designed to deploy more effectively on rugged and rocky surfaces.
In urban environments, WA Series cofferdams provide instant protection for buildings or shorelines, underground garages, houses, government buildings, shopping malls and others during spring freshet, even in harsher environments.
WA Series Water-Gate products can also be used to perform various work in aquatic environments. They can be used as a remedy to temporarily isolate and dry out work areas to enable safe intervention for workers.
Water-Gate WL Series
Products from our Residential Series provide instant flood control in the event of flash flooding or spring freshet. Flood barriers unfold in 3 simple steps, whether on flat, uneven, rugged or rocky surfaces. Installation where needed: in front of a door, window, garage, elevator door, office door, garage or underground passage, parking lot and much more.
Flood Barrier Operation
Each dam comes in the form of a PVC roll: simply unroll it on the ground and allow the pressure of the water to do the work. Its unique design allows it to deploy and stabilize itself automatically using the weight of the water. More specifically, the liquid infiltrates the barrier by lodging at the bottom of it; the Water-Gate dam self-deploys and inflates progressively as the level rises. Several heights of protective equipment are available, ranging from 6 in (15 cm) to 60 in (1.5 m). Our technicians are able to assess the equipment required by various circumstances.
Water-Gate dams from the WL Series are composed entirely of polymer, which has an impact on its lifetime that is estimated to be more than 20 years, to the extent that it is used whether for single instances or short periods of time. Ultraviolet rays are the most damaging to the materials that make up the dams. Polymer cloths, however, are specially treated to counteract such harmful effects. The composition of the Water-Gate ensures that there is no risk of damage due to moisture. The barrier’s materials easily withstand temperatures of +50ºC/+120ºF to -40ºC/–40ºF.
WL Series Water-Gate flood barriers ensure instantaneous control of water discharges and act as protection. When a flash flood strikes, response time is critical. With the Water-Gate solution, setup is completed in three simple steps: (1) unroll the barrier (2) unfold the first flap (3) let water accumulate.
A Water-Gate dam is reusable as many times as desired and its service life is estimated to be more than 20 years. For maintenance, simply rinse with clean water to remove all dirt and debris accumulated from previous use. Once the barrier is completely dry, put is back in its carrying bag and store it away from ultraviolet rays. In addition to being a cost-effective choice, Water-Gate products are reusable, making them an environmentally friendly alternative
Water-Gate flood barriers enable protection of up to 60 in (1.5 m). It is possible to link several together if a wider field of intervention is desired. In addition, all models over 1 meter (39’’) tall are certified FM Approved, certification obtained after extensive resistance testing done in collaboration with FM Approvals, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Association of State Flood Plain Managers (ASFPM). Each dam is highly resistant, allowing it to absorb the impacts of objects without affecting its integrity.
Our flexible, self-expanding water dams provide instant flood control due to flash floods or spring floods. Water-Gate products are the perfect alternative to sandbags because they can replace thousands of sandbags in an instant. They are qualified as competitive since their use does not involve more than 3 simple steps and because their deployment can be done on flat, uneven, uneven or even rocky surfaces. These innovative and unprecedented interventional equipment combine simplicity, robustness and reliability.
Barriers can protect all types of locations and be installed in many places: in front of a door, a window, a garage, an elevator door, an office door, a garage or underground entrance, parking, and more .
Our flexible and self-deploying dams are renowned for their versatility, as they are used in various contexts by many industries worldwide. The dam’s versatility and effectiveness has been a proven success among clientele in the industrial, commercial, medical, municipal, government, airport, military and even recreational industries.
Our range of products and services also provides interesting options for mitigating pollution incidents and toxic spills, for water diversion needs, performing aquatic work, planning water intake structures to fight fires, voluntarily drying riverbanks and more.
