CSG crowd control gate


An adaptable crowd control gate with configurable operation

Alvarado’s CSG (chrome finish) and SSG (satin stainless steel finish) are durable, self-closing pedestrian gates that can be field configured to swing either bi-directionally or in a single direction. The gate provides a 36″ passage opening and can be used for many applications.


Versatile and durable

Configurable swing pattern

The unique design of the CSG and SSG crowd control gates allow field configuration of the swing operation. The gates can be configured to swing 90 degrees in either direction, or configured to operate bi-directionally (180 degree swing).

Solidly built to stand up to demanding environments

The hinge post and gate of the CSG and SSG are solid welded assemblies, fabricated from steel (CSG) or stainless steel (SSG). The CSG has a bright chrome finish that matches the finish on Alvarado retail turnstiles and chrome plated modular posts and railing. The SSG has a satin finish which matches the finish of Alvarado’s stainless steel modular posts and railing.

The gates have a rugged gravity closure mechanism that smoothly closes the gate, whether configured for a single direction, 90 degree, swing pattern, or a bi-directional, 180 degree, swing pattern.


Improved entry control in any environment

Stop shoplifters from getting past store personnel unseen. When combined with our modular post and rail system, the CSG or SSG creates a physical barrier at the front of your store without slowing guest entry. Configure any custom layout to improve loss prevention in your store by directing exiting traffic through checkout lanes. In addition to entry applications, other common uses include closing off customer service, liquor and cigarette areas in retail stores.

CSG and SSG Product Benefits:

  • Provides orderly customer and shopping cart access
  • Chrome or stainless steel finish to match any environment
  • Inexpensive and highly effective
  • Restricts areas from public

Deter shoplifting by directing exiting traffic through checkout lanes.
