Safety and operation are always a consideration when choosing a parking garage security grille. We use an intelligent communication controller with any parking gate system that helps all parties.

Engineered with a springless design and a compact operator that features a variable-frequency drive this ensures a soft and quiet start and stop. This provides a parking gate that is virtually undetectable when installed directly under an apartment or office.
