Portable folding security gates are accordion like barriers that expand to block off a restricted area such as a workspace, a hallway, or a storage area. They provide safety and security while allowing air to circulate freely through the area. Scissor gates like these offer the added advantage of portability. They can be moved to the entrance of any room or hallway and setup within minutes.
Restricting specific areas from unauthorized personnel has always had its associated challenges. The biggest challenge has been ventilation. Solid barriers prohibit air flow to the interior. This can pose problems for the storage of certain chemicals that require cooler temperatures to remain non-volatile. Solid barriers are heavy and take longer to setup and remove. Finally, some areas, such as hallways and outdoor service areas cannot be effectively by large solid gates, walls, or doors.
In some cases as well, a solid barrier can actually work against security. Guards and cameras cannot detect intrusion from other access points if a large door or solid gate is blocking the main entrance to the area.
Portable folding security gates are specifically designed to meet the challenges associated with blocking off restricted areas that require visibility and ventilation.
One clear advantage that they offer over other scissor gates is mobility. Heavy duty swivel casters allow them to be quickly moved into place, expanded, fixed in place, and locked. Accordion gates require only two walls for installation. They feature a patented, simple pressure locking system that allows them to be secured in place without anchors to the floor or to the walls. Optional floor anchors are available, however, if extra security is required.
Each folding accordion gate comes with a standard padlock hasp. Cylinder locks can be ordered for added security. Due to the maneuverability, portability, and ease of installation these scissor gates feature, two individual units can be joined together to secure any indoor or outdoor area with a wide entrance.
Accordion security gates feature a flated finish. Picket channels are made from galvanized sheet steel. A zinc/iron phosphate coating protects the scissor gate from corrosion. A high-grade, electrostatically applied powder coat finish makes the portable folding security gate impact resistant and super durable.
All units are GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified(SM).
Portable accordion gates have found their way into a diversity of business types and organizations.
Certification for school use, along with their mobility and ease of installation, makes them ideal for use on elementary, junior high, and high school campus. Portable folding security gates are used to block hallway access after school closes for the day. School security guards and security cameras can still monitor blocked hallways because the gates allow clear visibility even when expanded and locked.
Retailers and retail distribution centers use scissor gates to restrict access to inventory that is not yet scheduled for stocking. Malls and strip centers use them to block access to areas under remodel, or that are in the process of being cleaned.
Warehouses and manufacturing facilities routinely use portable folding security gates to block unauthorized access to work rooms, heavy machinery, and sensitive material storage.
