If you’re working on a project that doesn’t require an industrial style metal overhead door, but you still need security, a roll-up security gate is the answer. Modern designs offer smooth and sleek finishes that are perfect for showing off your storefront or a section of your business during non-business hours. There’s no need to hide your business behind an outdated, bulky industrial door. New roll-up security gates offer the best of both worlds - aesthetics and security. 

Discover the advantages of a roll-up security gate for your next interior storefront, theatre, healthcare facility, or office:

Weight & Operation Options 

Choose from lightweight aluminum with hand crank or push-up operators, or motor options for heavy duty gates made with steel support curtains and stainless steel curtains. Roll-up security gates are perfect for locations with little wall support, insufficient wall structure, or masonry wall construction. 


Roll-up security gates can withstand daily use with ease. Quality manufacturers warranty their gates up to 50,000 open and close cycles. High-performance options are available for high traffic areas that require access control. Maintenance-free designs eliminate wearable items such as sprockets and chains. 

Built-in Safety

The safety of a roll-up security gate shouldn’t require aftermarket parts or add-ons. At Door Systems, we only work with manufacturers that provide quality entrapment protection devices, guide mounted interlocks, manual release system, and flame-retardant finishes.

Aesthetics & Customization

The days of industrial-only options are over. Innovative manufacturers now offer powder coating finishes, up to six standard curtain designs with custom options, and out-of-sight compact storage when not in use. 

  • Material: Choose from stainless steel, galvanized steel or aluminum.
  • Finish: Customize your finish, including clear anodized, medium or dark bronze anodized, black anodized or mill finish, or  powder coating in more than 180 different colors.
  • Graphics: Display your brand logo or message with etching or vinyl graphics.

Metal Mesh Security Grill

Looking for an ultra-modern roll-up security gate? Mesh security grilles are ideal for protecting sections of your business while showcasing it as a focal point behind this modern design.
