ADA security gate

 Why Would I Need an ADA Lever Lock?

To help against the threat of retail smash and grab burglaries, Quantum Security Gates has been supplying and installing unique retractable security gates to retailers in all industries throughout North America since 1997.    As a leader in the industry, we re-designed our unique tubular steel retractable front door security gates in order to facilitate an ADA Lever handle.  This is in accordance to follow the “Door Hardware” standards and guidelines which fall into the Standards Accessible Design act.  Within this new gate system, we will be using the Adams Rite 4550 MS Dead Lock 3” lever handle.

What are some of the ADA specifications specific to the lever lock?

  • The ability to open the lever lock with one hand, and does not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist to operate the lever lock on the security gate.
