Side Folding Security Grilles
A heavier-duty side folding grille, GlideGard™ provides enhanced security in applications where more robust supporting structures are available. Our vandalism-resistant design is useful for use in applications such as food courts, schools, sports complexes and public transit.
Side folding grilles require less headroom clearance than rolling grilles. The robust design of GlideGard™ features individual panels that interlock by full height hinge members. Fully concealed hinge rods protect the grille from vandalism.
