How it works

Wilgard XT series’ guard rail gate ships to your location with all necessary hardware required for installation.

For use in a new guard rail system, specify the size of gate opening needed so that correct gate rail lengths can be provided (custom gate rail lengths available). The Wilgard XT series gate can also be integrated into existing Wilgard XT series guard rail systems.

Once installed, the gate rolls along a spring-loaded caster for smooth operation and locks in place when not in use.
