Description of the function of the lock chamber.

The lock is used to overcome the height difference levels of vertical movement of the vessel. Lock chambers are placed on the waterways, especially (in the navigation channel, Canal), or directly on the rivers.
 
Drain water inlet or utilizing gravity, a reduction or increase in the level of water in the lock chamber and thus the start or lifting vessel. The chamber is mostly concrete or masonry, in exceptional cases it is possible to build a wall of steel sheet piles. In the past, some chambers built with sloping shorelines. The chamber is composed of upper and lower ohlaví between which is a space for the cone, ships. In both ohlavích are located watertight doors.
 
 To chamber downstream: Water in the chamber is impregnated with an upper water level, the upper gate is opened and the vessel enters the inside of the chamber. The vessel is exported - is tied with ropes to the binding elements in the chamber (bollards, tying crosses, etc..). The upper gates are closed. Chamber begins to drain. After the water level in the chamber and the lower the water level aligned with the lower door opens and the ship may leave the chamber. The chamber is now ready for locking through the vessel in an upward direction. Should it become necessary proplavit another vessel again in the downward direction, the chamber is again impregnated.
 
Door lock chamber serves to separate the locks from the top and bottom of the water. Gates are now made mainly of steel, in the past, Gates made either all-wood or wood studded with iron sheet. The gates are anchored by bearings ohlaví into the lock chamber. Nowadays it is used many kinds of doors, but not all fit into both ohlaví. The top ohlaví can be equipped with doors: buckling, board, blackboard, valve, the flap (Čábelková), or hook segment. lower ohlaví used doors buckling, plate or sheet.
