Folding door scissor gates are made for door openings between 24″ to 48″ wide in heights from 61″ to 83″. Portable folding scissor gates are available in sizes 6 and 12 feet wide.

Folding Security Door Gates
Our folding door gates are designed to secure door openings ranging from 24″ to 48″ wide and 61″ to 83″ high. They provide an exclusive reversible hinge design that allows gates to be installed to either the right side or the left side of the doorway in either the casing or the face of the opening. Our folding security door gates include a locking bar that can be secured with a combination lock. When not in use, the scissor gate will pivot 180 degrees out of the way when open.
Single Folding Security Gates
Our one piece folding gates are intended for standard openings, measuring 4-1/2′ to 7-1/2′ wide and up to 8′ in height. Single folding security gates are shipped preconfigured to lock on the left but Gates Open can custom make them to lock on the right side. A ball bearing caster, welded to the lead rail of the gate, is used to assist in the expansion and withdrawal of the gate. Like door gates, single gates will pivot 180 degrees when not in use. To make up for the loss of door anchor when the gate is stretched open, a drop pin holds the center of the folding gate in place.
Double Folding Security Gates
These gates are necessary for larger openings, overhead doors, dock doors, storefronts, and bay doors in factories and warehouses. These two-piece gates can be custom fitted to any size width, and a maximum height of 10′. Because they are Double Gates, each side will pivot 180 degrees out of the way, allowing the gates to be used with dock and overhead doors in industrial facilities that need an unobstructed passage for vehicles and material handling equipment to pass through.

They offer a two piece design consisting of dual 6′ X 6.5′ sections. They are easy to install because they are designed for standard door heights and be can be folded up for suitable storage. For particularly large entrances or hallways, additional 6′ sections can be added on.
