ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Cast iron single faced thimble mounted sluice gates

IS Standard : IS 13349:1992

Sluice gates with a single face made of cast iron and fixed on a thimble are essential parts of water management and control systems and are frequently employed in a variety of hydraulic engineering applications. The remarkable strength, longevity, and corrosion resistance of cast iron, the material used to carefully create these sluice gates, is widely recognized. Because of their "single-faced" construction, which suggests that they have a sealing surface on one side, these gates may be used to regulate water flow only in one direction. The sturdy design and effective sealing mechanisms of tumbler-mounted sluice gates provide accurate and dependable water flow management. Usually, they are installed inside water infrastructure such as reservoirs, dams, channels, or other structures where it is required to control water levels or redirect flows.

Detailed standards and regulations for the production of cast iron sluice gates are outlined in IS 13349:1992. This standard applies to single-faced, vertically sliding cast iron sluice gates that are intended to be installed on the flange of a cast iron wall thimble and have nominal dimensions between 300 and 2,500 mm. By following these guidelines, manufacturers may reliably make high-quality gates, minimizing errors and guaranteeing the dependability of the product. Adherence to this standard guarantees that the gates fulfill safety and longevity prerequisites, diminishing the possibility of malfunctions, leaks, and possible risks. Adhering to these criteria enables manufacturers to attain consistency and uniformity in their goods, which is essential for preserving the integrity of water infrastructure systems.

Note: Manufacturers of cast iron single-faced thimble-mounted sluice gates are required to get the ISI Mark Certification before to launching their products in the Indian market.

The non-negotiable ISI Certification ensures that these sluice gates meet strict technical requirements, safety guidelines, and quality standards, which in turn improves the performance and dependability of the water management systems in which they are placed. It guarantees the efficacy and durability of their water management solutions by giving government agencies, water management authorities, and infrastructure developers peace of mind that the sluice gates they integrate into their systems are of the greatest quality.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.

Simplified Procedure

This is a much faster process than the standard procedure. After a factory inspection is deemed satisfactory and the initial evaluation establishes that the sample complies with the applicable Indian Standard(s), the license application process is expected to be finished in 30 days.

Step 1: Adapting the Manufacturing Unit to Comply with the Relevant Indian Standard

  • Identifying the applicable Indian Standard
  • Establishing in-house testing facilities to meet the Standard's requirements

Step 2: Sample Testing

  • Obtaining the necessary certificate for raw materials (Material Test Certificate - MTC)
  • Conducting product sample testing at a BIS-recognized testing laboratory
