Vertical bar folding gates are constructed of pairs of vertical
channels with two or more rows of lattice bars. Channels may be
3/4" x 3/8" x 1/8" approximately 6" on centers
with 5/8" x 1/8" lattice bars, with separators at pivot
points. Overhead tracks and hangers should be supplied for gates
in wide corridors or wherever they extend more than 8 or 10 feet
Floor tracks or bottom stiffening tracks may be used where gates
are of sufficient relative height to allow tracks to fold into position.
Casters are usually required for gates over 3 or 4 feet wide, unless
overhead tracks are used.
Shallow or deep wall pocket cabinets where wall conditions permit.
Deep pocket cabinets may be used allowing full unobstructed use
of corridor, with folding gates pulling out, or collapsing into
cabinets on straight line. Door to cabinet mounted on recess or
piano hinge, with cabinet or cylinder locks. Where other wall conditions
permit, shallow pocket cabinets may be used, also allowing full
unobstructed use of corridors with folding gates hinged to swing
out and across corridor opening, or collapsed to fold into pocket
of cabinet. Door to cabinet mounted on offset hinges and provided
with cylinder locks.
Diamond lattice folding gates are constructed of single channels
riveted back to back and arranged in diamond pattern. Channels may
be 3/4" x 3/8" x 1/8" approximately 6" on centers.
The over all height becomes less as the gates are extended; approximately
1/2" to each foot of width. The pivot point is usually placed
near the bottom to maintain a more constant distance to the floor.
Vertical members may be provided on wide gates with casters on floor
or track and hangers above.
