This pivoting blast gate is designed for placement overhead and to be actuated by pulling the cords on either side to open or close.
It is designed to use 6" schedule 40 PVC pipe, but could be adapted to other sizes or types of pipe.
Dimensions are provided, but I suggest printing full size and making templates.
The opening/closing door is modeled as 1/2" thick. I suggest using 1/4" or 3/8" thickness and adding gasket material on the contact surfaces to ensure an air tight closure.
