The Fortress Heavy Duty Aluminum Swing Gate, manufactured by Tymetal Corp., will close openings of up to 24 feet for a single gate, and up to 48 feet with use of a double gate.

Tymetal’s Fortress Heavy Duty Swing gate is ideal for locations where there is not enough room to roll or slide a gate (like alleys or where the access road is right along the perimeter). They are also ideal for the replacement of old steel gates, as they are much lighter and easier to operate both manually or automatically. They will never rust or “brown out” like the steel gates that they are replacing, so they will always look good at an entrance.

Fortress Heavy Duty Swing Gates are fabricated from 6063-T6 aluminum alloy extrusions. The primary members (top and bottom) are rectangular shaped in cross section with outside vertical members “P” shaped in cross section. Maintenance free, sealed bearing industrial grade gate hinges are through bolted to the gate frame. The gate includes cross bracing of 3/16” minimum diameter stainless steel cable to provide for vertical adjustments.

The Heavy Duty Swing Gate is available in either chain link or ornamental styles to match all popular fencing materials and colors. Tymetal’s custom design shop can help design a swing gate to match any element on your site for beautiful security.
