Collapsible Gates


London underground stations, car parks, a wide range of commercial situations where the ability to see through the gate deters criminals, and provides optimum ventilation and vision.


Collapsible gates, designed to provide security against vandals, burglars and other intruders.

Bottom rolling gates:

  • 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 'T' section top track is used.
  • The weight of the gate is supported by pulleys at the base of the pickets.
  • Hinging-aside is not available when the opening size exceeds 1.5 m wide or 3 m high.
  • Single: Maximum (w x h): 1.5 x 3 m.
  • Pair: Maximum (w x h): 3 x 3 m.

Spearhead gates:

  • Pointed spearheads can be attached to the top of pickets to offer climb-over protection where lintels are not available for head fixings.
  • Spearhead gates run on a flat bar bottom track which is folding or portable. The top track is a folding or portable flat bar. The weight of the gate is supported by pulleys at the base of the pickets.
  • Pairs are supplied with removable centre post and fixing stay.
  • Single: Maximum (w x h): 1.5 x 2 m.
  • Pair: Maximum (w x h): 3 x 2 m.

Top hung gates:
