Gate-leaf of slide gate move vertical or horizontal by means of screw hoist on its frame to open or close the waterway thus regulate the flow and it can be used as a type of sluice gate but other type of gates are also used as sluice gate like flapgate, radial gate,needle gate,automatic gate,fixed wheel type vertical gate etc. Also same type of gates when installed on diffrent structures called by that structure's gate like crest gate, head regulator gate, cross regulator gate, escape gate, etc.
