I built my blast gates form a design similar to the one Lazyman is considering. They work great. I’ve been using them for almost 8 years and have never had a moment’s difficulty with them. I incorporated magnetic reed switches wired in parallel to activate a relay at the cyclone to turn it on and off when I open and close a blast gate. The switch is designed for home security systems and is used to trigger an alarm when a window or door is opened. They are very inexpensive, last forever and are simple to install. I used a thin sheet of PSA gasket material to seal the gate when it’s open so there is zero pressure loss.
