Gate Types

Brass alloy Golden Gates® are engineered for quality, easy handling and dependability. The heavy-duty, corrosion resistant locking mechanism will stay locked until an operator releases it; yet, can easily be shut with one hand. Cost effective, these gates reduce down time, providing the alternative to conventional latches.
