Security and access aren't mutually exclusive
Folding industrial gates are designed to make your facilities more secure and
still allow frequent, easy access to those who need it.
They fold easily back and out of the way when people or equipment need to pass,
but provide a lockable barrier when closed. These gates are excellent for
situations where compact, restricted access is a priority, but visibility and
air flow are desired as well. Secure your warehouse, your bay doors, your
aisles, and other restricted areas with easy to install folding gates. Every
gate retracts to a fraction of its extended width, and will pivot up to 270
clear the doorway. Arranged to accept padlocks. Constructed from heavy-duty steel U-type channel riveted back-to-back. All
double gates are secured with drop pins and feature steel ball bearing swivel
casters for easy opening and closing. The webs are riveted to vertical rails and
rivets are secure behind, to prevent tampering. No welding required for
installation. Gates supplied with mounting brackets and bearing washers.

Frequently asked questions
- How soon
will I receive my gate? Your order usually ships within five days (arrival
depends on where you are located), but often it can ship faster than that. Even
custom orders usually take 7-10 days.
- I only
received two “L” brackets for the top of the gate. Don't I also need brackets
for the bottom? No. Your gate rests on bearing washers, and drop pins that
fit into holes in the floor that you've drilled.
- What if I
don't want to drill holes in my floor to mount my single or pair gate? You
can special order a shorter truncated gate with special brackets designed to
hold the gate off the floor. Contact us for details.
I need to drill holes in the floor for my pair gate's self-securing drop pin?
Yes. Self-securing drop pins, which must be inserted into floor-holes, are
required for pair gates to join properly in the center, when closed.
- Can I
install the “L” bracket up, instead of down? Yes. If you want easy access to
the bracket bolts. However, this configuration provides less security.
- Should I
lubricate the gate? Not usually. Normally your gate requires no maintenance.
In harsh environments (severe winters, coastal conditions) lubricating the gate
periodically with white grease is a good idea.
- When do I
need an “H” bracket? You can install an “H” bracket above where two sides of
a pair gate meet. Each half of the gate joins to the “H” bracket, providing
greater rigidity and security. An “H” bracket installed in your opening will
reduce clearance height of forklifts & other vehicles.
