Easy Glide scissor gates are a trackless self-standing gate that is easy to install and operate. These low maintenance scissor gates are often installed behind roll up dock doors, in warehouse isles, or even personnel doors in commercial business applications. Easy Glide accordion gates are also used as a less expensive, easier to install alternative to our high security custom made Maxguard gate, typically used in storefront installations.

Folding Gate Side Channels

Our exclusive design incorporates a heavy duty, 16 gauge “U” channel for the side support rather than an angle. This unique design feature allows the Easy Glide folding gate to stand straight without the added support of a top track even for folding gate widths up to 26’. Concealed inside our “U” channels are our patented slider assemblies. These assemblies allow the folding gate to operate smoothly while the channel protects the user from pinch points.

The lattice channels of our Easy Glide gates are heavy duty, 14 gauge steel. Most other manufacturers use a thinner 18-22 gauge material which is more prone to bending.

Sandwiched between the lattices are our unique PVC washers, another exclusive design of the Easy Glide gate. PVC washers provide lubrication and allow the gate to fold and operate smoothly while preventing corrosion and wear at the lattice joints.

Lattice Channels

This photo of a competitor's grab channel shows the unsafe design where users of the gate can get serious finger injuries when closing the gates. This occurs when grabbing an open gate and unknowingly placing your fingers in the specific areas where the lattice moves up to 40 degrees, shown in the photo. If your finger is holding the angle channel at the pinch point, and the user quickly closes the gate, fingers can be seriously injured, depending on how quick you close the gates, and how quick the reactions are by the user to stop closing the gate.

Roller Assembly

Designed for durability and long life, Easy Glide folding security gates use a corrosion-resistant, zinc plated roller assembly with a 2” rubber wheel. If it ever becomes damaged due to use on rough or uneven floors, an Easy Glide roller can be easily replaced.

Paint

We use a high quality, oil-based enamel for all our dock gate products. Applied using an electrostatic process, the resulting finish is comparable to powder coating and is available in a wide range of colors.

Packaging

You can ship with confidence knowing Easy Glide dock gates are well packaged in durable, heavy duty cartons to help insure your gate arrives undamaged.
