MSG pedestrian security gate


Full Height Pedestrian Security Gate

Alvarado’s full height pedestrian security gate looks and functions much better than a chain link gate or a one-off fabricated solution. MSG full height gates have a large 48” opening width and are often installed in conjunction with full height turnstiles to provide passageways for accessibility or material deliveries. The individual frame and gate are welded assemblies and the various models provide several lock and push bar options. The gates ship pre-framed and fully assembled.
