Another appealing aspect that roll down security grilles offer is increased visibility. In a storefront or mall setting for instance, it is important to make sure all property and products are safe from theft but still offer appeal when the business is not open. Rolling gates allow visitors to still see within the business without the fear of being stolen. Windows offer this to some degree but do not provide as much security if smashed. For protection against air born damage, such as vandalism, commercial gates can be sealed with flameproof polycarbonate panel inserts and still offer solid, clear protection.
Installing a coiling gate system can transform a building into multiple usable sections. But security does not have to be an eyesore. Our standard rolling gates can be manufactured with regular or anodized aluminum as well as stainless steel. For a custom look, overhead gates can be powder coated in any one of our stock 180 colors or even custom colors can be created.
Overhead rolling gates are often stored out of sight in a ceiling or fixture. However, when that is not possible, we offer metal hood and operator covers that protect the coil from exterior weather, debris or to meet OSHA or UL 325 safety requirements. For even further aesthetics, the addition of a trim package can cover any unsightly hardware and even blend or contribute to the building’s architecture. This is often found in hotels, convention centers, hospitals and other facilities where installation aesthetics are important.
