Scissor gates are retractable gates, typically made of steel or aluminum. This style of gate can add both security and visual appeal to business establishments and homes.
Many parents use scissor gates as a safety feature. The scissor gate enables visual access to a space while limiting physical passage. If parents are working with potentially dangerous tools or chemicals in one room, they can position the gate to where it will prevent a small child from entering while still allowing the parents to supervise the child.
Business owners may consider installing scissor gates to provide protection for a certain part of their establishment. The thickness of the retractable steel, aside from saving space, provides ample security. Scissor gates are well-suited to small commercial establishments like novelty shops and restaurants. If your business has an aluminum glass frame, installing a scissor gate could be a smart way to protect it.
