What materials make up our Folding Security Gates?
Throughout the years of ongoing product development we have stamped our flagship folding security gates with 5/8″ by 5/8″ square tubing as we found 1/2″ steel couldn’t handle the years of wear and tear on wider gates, and first and foremost, the force to enter was to easy being weak. Our side rails then also went thicker to 14 gauge. Another addition we made necessary to secure folding door gates, was the hooklock mortise style assembly we build within our custom add on post to the gates. This adds much stronger security and style, unlike a jimmy proof knuckle lock which are not commercial rated. With ease of use to operate, and less chance of maintenance to the locks, as they are also re-keyable to existing locks and of commercial grade. 10 year warranty on all manufacturing.
