Engineered to exceed demanding security requirements, Tilt-A-Way Vertical Pivot Gates are recognized for setting the standards in design quality and performance. For either low or high security applications, our vertical pivot gates are manufactured and tested to withstand the harshest operating conditions while complementing any security access system and is also UL 325 Listed.

Our vertical lift gate systems are made of steel or aluminum for long life. We offer an anti-twist and sway design. This vertical security gate is high in security yet keeps its modest look.

How does our vertical lift gate system work?

Tilt-A-Way vertical security gates are balanced by two springs that pull in a straight line for maximum life. The springs are protected by our patented design. A center pull enhances the spring’s life cycle. Each spring incorporates adjusting units. Cables travel over two pulleys, each with a double row of ball bearings. An automatic shutdown is provided in the event that the cable breaks. Each pulley is adjustable for up, down, forward, and back directions providing a perfect balance.
