For any application that has security as a top concern, Tymetal Corp. manufactures a full line of crash-tested and anti-ram gates capable of standing up to heavy impacts. Whether you’re securing the perimeter of a government building or a corporate compound, our crash gates give you the peace of mind knowing important barriers are fully protected against accidents and vehicle-based attacks.
As a worldwide leader in aluminum security gate manufacturing, we bring more than 25 years of industry expertise to everything we do. We’re your single source capable of delivering the highest quality custom-made crash tested gates that are reliable and built to deliver years of trouble-free use. Our proud industry reputation is based on decades of experience and a professional staff dedicated to exceptional customer care.
Each of our crash gates is tested at a certified third-party facility to meet DOS and ASTM standards for perimeter barrier resistance. During testing, our anti-ram gates are subjected to an impact from a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at least 30 mph. Where other crash tested gates fold under pressure, our crash gates provide the protection you need to keep your location safe and secure.
Reinforced slide and vertical lift gates, cantilever slide gates, vertical pivot gates and complete fortified impact gate systems are all available. We also offer crash beams rated to U.S. Navy and DOS K4 and K12 standards, fixed and removable bollards, surface mounted plate barriers and shallow mounted vehicle barriers.
Each crash gate is built to order in either our Texas or New York manufacturing plant. In addition to our wide range of standard products, we also provide custom design services that incorporate your unique needs into a custom product.
Types of Anti-Ram Solutions
At Tymetal, we offer several different types of anti-ram gates, including:
TCGR-12 Cantilever Slide Gate
The TCGR-12 gate features an aluminum frame and can be moved with an operator or manually with ease. Its open box frame design gives it the flexibility to match many existing design infills such as mesh, picket or chain link. Plus, it allows for greater infill carrying capacity. The box frame is also stiff, which reduces bending due to wind and harsh weather conditions.
The aluminum frame offers a lighter alternative to traditional steel anti-ram security gates and provides easier installation, reduced maintenance and an overall longer lasting gate system. Other features include clearance of up to 26 feet as crash tested (27 to 30 feet as engineered – not tested), customizable operating parameters and integrated crash track and beam. This gate option is ASTM F2656-07 M50 P2 certified, which is equivalent to the prior United States Department of State K12/L2.
Reinforced Slide Gate
The reinforced slide gate is easily adaptable to many different site conditions and provides an enhanced level of protection for your perimeter with its HSS steel tube reinforcement and steel bollards filled with concrete.
It is available in several gate types, including the Box Frame Roller Gate and Fortress Cantilever systems. Each option provides added durability and security by acting as an anti-ram barrier. Reinforced slide gate options come with an operator and are available in ornamental or chain link infills.
Reinforced Vertical Lift Gate
The reinforced vertical lift gate is a heavy-duty structure. It features a #60 roller chain mechanism, including counterweights and engineered footings, for precise up and down movement. This lift gate also has concrete-filled steel bollards and HSS steel tube reinforcement.
You can use the reinforced vertical lift gate in almost setting as it can clear up to 30 feet. However, it is ideal for sites without enough space outside for a slide or swing gate to retract without hitting something. Reinforced vertical lift gates are available with chain link and ornamental infills.
TCG-4 Cantilevered Slide Gate (U.S. DOS K4)
The TCG-4 cantilevered slide gate features an aluminum open frame structure which allows you to match existing design infills such as chain link or pickets. Aluminum is also easier to maintain than traditional steel, and it will not rust. This aluminum system is ideally suited for applications requiring a high number of cycles per day.
The TCG-4 Cantilevered Slide Gate comes in a standard height of 8 feet and can be manually operated or powered at speeds of up to 2 feet per second. Its design eliminates the need for a V track in the road and reduces alignment issues as well as installation time. These gates are ASTM F2656-07 M30 P1 certified or the equivalent of U.S. Department of State K4. Clear Openings from 12′ to 30′
TCG-12 Cantilever Slide Gate (U.S. DOS K12)
The TCG-12 model is a completely steel system designed for highest levels of perimeter security. The heavy steel structure is best suited for applications requiring longevity, reliability and low cycles per day. It is a standard 8 feet in height and comes in gate clearance options of 12 to 30 feet. Its design includes highly requested features such as easy installation, adjustable track assembly and a blank canvas for the infill. The design also makes V tracks in your roads unnecessary, which will limit road and driveway blockage during construction. These anti-ram security gates are ASTM F2656-07 M50 certified, which is equivalent to the U.S. Department of State K12.
