Looks like it would work good.
Great for Security Usage
Your review: Began using these barricades instead of stanchions to block off secure areas. Have made an immediate noticeable difference as soon as they were put into use. Fantastic way to secure large, open areas.
Pros: They are more noticeable. Cannot be easily opened like with the stanchions we were previously using. Very easy to set up and store on a daily basis.
Cons: They are heavy, but having wheels helps. Are still looking for a way to secure them at each end to stop unauthorized access.
Your review: This is our second expando gate. Convenient, portable, store-able. Yes, they will flop over at full extension if not pinned to wall but it is not a true security gate anyway. What it does is remove excuses for being in the wrong area when Murphy strikes.
does what it should
Your review: PUrchased this to identify where public should not access beyond point while employees passing constantly throughout the day. The wheels make it easy for employees to move to pass through but replace. Customers have not "wandered" like before!! Problem solved!
Pros: Durable. easy to move and position in place hard to not notice
Cons: none so far
Strong and Portable
Your review: This was the perfect item for barricading an area we have trouble with illegal parking. They fold up relatively compact which help with limited storage space. We used large zip-ties ti temporarily bind them and that kept folks from separating the sections. I recommend this to anyone needing a portable barricade system.
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, portable, small storage footprint, easy to see, wheel casters.
Cons: A few minor parts were missing with the hardware, but nothing we couldn't work around.
Well built, could use a couple of changes
Your review: i work at a manufacturing company with a very active employee group, and one of our favorite things to do at break time is Ping-pong. the freight crew was increasingly frustrated by people running after ping pong balls while they were unloading containers. these gates make a solid line of safety around the work area and everybody is happier.
Pros: Well built and stable. nice casters that roll well on concrete. the units train together to make longer barricades. there is a lock to hold them closed.
Cons: I wish there werelocks to hold the barriers open. They tend to shorten up and try to close after a while. They are also difficult to hook together to make a longer barrier. You have to pick one up completely and drop its pin into the socket of the next one. i don't want to be the person to file an incident report regarding a back injury sustained while setting up a safety barricade. A pin on a chain and a socket with holes would be a better way to hook them together.
Your review: Just what I was looking for.
Pros: Very good value
Cons: A special THIN wrench is needed to tighten the casters to the frame. None was included with the unit. I had to use a thin 'vise grip' that I happened to have but even then I was only able to grab onto the outer edge of the bearing race and not the hex part of the spindle. This caused the race to slip in relation to the hex part once the threads tightened. I hope this will not cause the joint to loosen up prematurely.
Portable Steel Barricade Gate
Your review: This steel portable barricade gate w/casters is just what I was looking for to stretch across my driveway. I live on a four lane road and a couple of times someone drove into my driveway and broke those gates. Well this one may be the first and last gate they hit.
Good for Pedestrian traffic
Your review: Overall this gate does a good job for my needs. It is used to block a bay door that is used primarily for ventilation. I had to add chains so that I could secure this to the wall to prevent people from pushing it aside. Otherwise I'm satisfired with the product.
Great quality for price.
Your review: When I saw these in the catalog I thought to my self this is perfect for some needs in my facility. When I looked at the price I thought it was going to be a poor quality. After assembling and using for the last couple weeks. I should have never second guessed myself. I currently use it as a barricade when we have our orchestra pit open in our theater. It is functional and professional looking as well. Only drawback is that the casters are not locking.
Not suitable for extension of more than 4-5 feet
Your review: I purchased these units since the description stated that it could expand to 11ft and the pictures showed a fully extended unit, but when I assembled the product, I found that the unit would lose stability when extended more than 4-5 feet since the casters do not lock and the bases are not wide enough to support the weight of the unit when fully expanded. The gate begins to bow and at 45 lbs, structurally the design is not capable of supporting the instability and will result in the unit either toppling over or the bases and wheels turning inward to compensate for the in-balance. I would not recommend purchasing this unless you only need to section off a small aisle or if you can either attach the base to something stable or use a weighted object (sandbags) to prevent the casters from moving although this defeats the purpose of a portable barricade.

Hello Prashant, This model is made for indoor use and will rust if used outdoors. As follows is a link to our loading dock security gates which can be used outdoors: http://www.globalindustrial.com/c/material-handling/dock-truck/gates Thank you for your interest in our product.
Have this Barricade something to lock the casters? Or how could we ensure they never retract or leave on the position we want. Thanks
