The Slide-A-Matic is composed of a series of interlocking sliding panels that rotate into position and then extend, panel by panel, to a latch post. The gate can cover 14-feet, and can be doubled by bringing two gates together from the left and right. The gate does not require a suspension or tracking system in order to operate and can freely rotate to the side when retracted.
Slide-A-Matic can be sued to guard industrial production and robotic areas that require high-visibility protection, but also require unobstructed access for servicing, loading equipment, and machine set-up. Because it is lockable, it can also serve as a security gate for cribs.
Gate construction is all steel. Individual panels are 51.5-inches wide. Standard panel inserts are 2-inch welded wire, however, a variety of inserts is available. Total thickness of all four panels when retracted is less than 4-inches. Standard gate height is 77-inches. Swivel casters are non-marking, 3-inch, poly-olefin. The sliding steel latch can be operated from either side of the gate and is pad-lockable.
