Maximus Industrial Swing Gates

PalmSHIELD MAXIMUS gate collection is the ultimate solution for highly visible industrial screening applications when appearance matters. The MAXIMUS industrial swing gate collection is the extreme industrial gate solution incorporating our double gate framework design. Our MAXIMUS industrial swing gates resemble bank vault doors with our 4” x 2” tubular outer framework encapsulating our 3” x 3” interior angle framework. This is an industrial gate design when aesthetics are critical. PalmSHIELD MAXIMUS industrial gates are available in a wide variety of infill options including composite wood, vinyl, aluminum, louvers, perforated and wire mesh.  All of our infill options provide a modern architectural look. Unlike any other industrial gate manufacture, MAXIMUS industrial gates are sweep blasted and powder coated.  We offer an endless number of colors.

PalmSHIELD MAXIMUS gates are custom designed and engineered to your tallest and widest industrial openings. We apply a series of engineering principles, accounting for the effects of the cantilevered load and wind load. With our double framework design and cable trussing system, no need to worry about future failed or sagging gates.  PalmSHIELD has successfully built thousands of industrial gates over the last thirty years.

PalmSHIELD understands commercial and industrial gates rely on the little things for continued operation. PalmSHIELD incorporates their own custom designed Gorilla hinges. These are not your ordinary hinges.  Our industrial gate hinges utilize half inch thick bearing plates attached to a two inch wide stainless steel barrel. Our commercial gates are too good for unsightly padlocks and wearing slide bolts. Only PalmSHIELD offers an internal commercial locking system with our Locinox re-keyable stainless steel and brushed aluminum locks. To hold our gates in-place, PalmSHIELD incorporates a one inch schedule forty and padlock-able drop pin on every commercial and industrial gate leaf.
