A range of custom-made collapsible gates designed for underground stations, car parks, and in a wide range of commercial situations.

The gates can be top hung or bottom rolling with the optional facility to be hinged aside for locations on shop entrances, window protection and small openings where a clear width is required. Ram-raid protection is provided when both top and bottom tracks are fitted.

Gate Types:

Top hung gates:

A top hung gate should be used wherever possible due to its superior operating capabilities. Single gates up to 2500 mm high and/ or 3000 mm wide are suspended from a flat bar top track, fixed at each end; larger gates have a box type top track. The gates incorporate channel bottom tracks set into the floor.

Bottom rolling gates:

They run on a flat bar bottom track which can be folding or portable for smaller openings. Where the gate is required to hinge aside when bunched, a ‘Tee’ section top track is used. The weight of the gate is supported by pulleys at the base of the pickets.

Spearhead gates:

Generally as bottom rolling gates with pointed spearheads attached to the top of the pickets to offer climb-over protection where lintels are not available for head fixings. Pairs of gates are supplied with removable centre post and fixing stay.
