    The flood barrier as a flood protection for the Rhine port in the harbor entrance is closed at high tide, the water level in the Rhine can then continue to increase without the commercial areas in the port area are flooded.
    As a fallback, the ring dike around the harbor area will continue to be flooded, so that only this is flooded in case of failure of the Sperrtores.
    The flood-barrier gate is accessible and also serves as a pedestrian bridge over the harbor entrance and thus also shortens the footpath between the Knielinger See and the Rhine harbor steam power plant.
    The lock gate was completed in 1987. It considerably shortened the dyke line of the Rhine main dike, the harbor now lies inside. Reason for the gate were floods in the Rhine port on May 26, 1983 by 8.59 meters at the level Maxau.
