What are scissor gates?

July 31, 2015 | Commercial Doors

ScissorGates-blogScissor gates are widely recognizable for their style when they’re used as a security gate. The steel folding gate doors are often used on storefronts and businesses for a high form of protection in public areas. They are primarily used on vulnerable areas that contain windows where the area can easily be broken into. Here are some of the benefits.

Added Security

Scissor gates are used on storefronts to protect the exterior and interior property from damage or theft after hours. The size and strength of scissor gates make them a viable option to protecting certain properties when the building is unoccupied. The gates are often locked with just a standard pad lock for a high level of security and safety from intruders. The steel frame makes them durable and cannot easily be tampered with for those who are trying to break in.

Style and Design

The typical style of scissor gates features an all-black color that is uniform to most buildings or storefronts for a professional look. Business owners who want a different design can also have the gate powder coated with a specific color so that it complements the surrounding environment. This makes for a custom style that fits the needs and preference of the store owner to ensure that their building still appears attractive.

Prevent Unauthorized Access

Not only do scissor gates protect storefronts, but they can also be used to close off a specific area in a building. This allows business owners to leave the roll up door open without allowing access to unauthorized individuals who are wandering the property. It also offers added peace of mind by preventing people from entering into your warehouse without your approval.

It is recommended that businesses get scissor gates maintained and inspected on a regular basis.
