Top Track Security Gates allow the gate to be hung much like a curtain across any span — so they always remain within the track. This type of track gate is recommended for storefront openings over 20 feet wide and can be used to secure openings spanning several hundred feet. A top track gate can be used with optional “L” brackets as well as utilize optional “pin” rails — and set into the floor like a standard Dock Door Gate. If the pin rails are not used, the gate is essentially suspended from the top rail. For all Top Track Storefront Security Gate configurations, there is a loss in height of about 6” as the gate is expanded. There will always be a 6” gap between the top of the gate and below the top track.
Designed to provide a more stable and secure storefront window gate, Bottom Guide Security Gates are usually installed along the inside of storefront windows utilizing a continuous frame effect for structural strength and stability. For all gate configurations, there is a loss in height of about 6” as the gate is expanded.
