Providing a convenient method of entering without raising the shutter.

Wicket Gates

Covering Kent, London, Sussex and Surrey, Lotinga can provide professional advice as to whether a wicket gate is the best option for your opening.

If your shutter is the only access into your building, wicket gates provide a more convenient method of entering without having to raise the shutter each time.

When installed within a Roller Shutter Door they do not roll up, you must push the wicket gate back in order for the shutter to operate.

How It Works

Roller Shutter Wicket Gate

The Wicket Gate within a Roller Shutter Door cannot be lifted with the door, but these steps must be followed:

  1. Release the top and bottom internal levers to release the securing flap.
  2. Pull door and frame back towards the wall.
  3. If the door is electrially operated, the wicket gate MUST engage with the safety interlock switch (see below)
  4. You are left with a hole in the curtain and the shutter can then be raised.
  5. To avoid damage to the shutter, DO NOT attempted to raise it whilst the wicket gate is in place.

How It Works

Sectional Overhead Door Wicket Gate

Unlike wicket gates within roller shutters, those installed within Sectional Overhead Doors are designed to raise with the door, but you must ensure the door is securely closed before attempting operation.

Safety Interlock Switch

All electrically operated roller shutters and sectional overhead doors which incorporate these integral doors must have this additional safety feature installed.  

It prevents the door from being raised if the wicket gate is not fully opened or positioned correctly.
