When I was using 4” PVC I had some really long sweeping tees that the curve was way longer then the end of the tee. I’d look for those if they still make them. I’ll look around and see if I have one and take a picture and post it if I do.

And if I remember correctly the blast gates were smaller then the opening say on the end of an elbow but fit nicely in the end of 4” pipe. So if I was putting a gate right on an elbow or tee I’d cut a piece of 4” pipe and put it in there flush first. I’d use silicon caulk/glue what ever you want to call it to glue it in place. Worked great and you could take it apart if you ever needed to with a razor blade. Was a little work to do but could be done.
