The Fortress Vertical Lift Gate has been produced by TYMETAL. for over 25 years and is in constant use throughout North America. As leading designers and vertical liftgate manufacturers, we’re your single, convenient source for durable and dependable perimeter security solutions. Whether you’re an architect, facility owner, engineer, or fence contractor, we’re fully equipped to deliver aluminum vertical lift gates that provide the perfect fit.
While Vertical Lift Gates can be used in any setting, they are especially valuable on sites where there is insufficient space outside of the gate opening for a swing or slide gate to retract without hitting an obstacle.
TYMETAL’s Vertical Lift Gate is designed to operate flawlessly as a complete system: the heavy W12x53 superstructure, a solidly engineered #60 chain drive mechanism, complete with counterweights, engineered footings (including rebar cages and anchor bolts) assure a smooth and precise up-and-down movement. To minimize stress, steel counterweights running inside the vertical support columns are fabricated to balance the weight of the gate, reducing the power demand on the motor.
The gate panel hangs on four truck assemblies, each with four sealed and permanently lubricated roller bearings, traveling inside a smooth aluminum track. A continuous loop drive system, directly connected to the counterweight in each support column, assures precision operation.
