Scissor gates are barriers placed across various kinds of entryways. They get their name from the lattice frame that folds together like a pair of scissors. There are three major categories of security gates. Retail storefront security gates are designed to secure a locked storefront at the close of business day. Industrial dock door security gates are used to secure factory and warehouse loading areas, receiving areas, and service doors. Access control and loss prevention gates are used to limit access to retail stock rooms, restricted areas, and corridors.
Retail storefront security scissor gates are a good idea for any storefront to invest in. Locked doors and windows do not provide sufficient protection against a determined burglar. Even with burglar alarms and security cameras, seasoned criminals can disguise themselves and make off with merchandise long before police arrive on the scene. However, they will not have an easy time getting past a security barrier. Even if they succeed, the chances of them being caught are much higher, making any retail security gate well worth the investment for even the smallest of stores on a tight budget.
Industrial loading docks, warehouses, service corridors, and factory receiving areas also need to be secured against unauthorized entry. Folding secuity gates are the best way to do this in many environments where chemicals and sensitive products are stored. These substances may be highly volatile, produce noxious fumes, or be subject to heat degradation if they are not properly ventilated. Industrial security scissor gates block unauthorized access without restricting air flow.
Folding scissor security gates can also control access to inventory, intellectual property, and in some cases, protect human safety. One of the most common applications for security access gates is to block access to retail stock rooms. Unless an employee is granted access to the stockroom by management, inventory remains safe from internal theft. Intellectual property in corporations can also be guarded with security gates. Many schools and churches use these gates to direct crowds through their buildings by blocking off select corridors during events.
There are both fixed position and portable scissor gates, and a wide range of models you can choose from in each of the three major categories. Call today for more information on pricing and application.
