How to Pick the Right Gate for Wire Partitions - S.W. Betz

Wire partitions are great for storing and protecting large pieces of equipment, but you need to plan on how to get in and out of the space.

Wire partitions are great for creating safe storage areas within a warehouse, but getting inventory in and out of them isn’t always easy if you don’t have the right gate. As with most things, the right gate depends on your business’s unique needs. Luckily, there are options to suit just about every need.

Single and Double Swing

Swing gates are great options for warehouses where space is not an issue. Since these gates open just like a regular door there needs to be room to open and close the door. Single and double swing gates are good, standard options for wire partitions.

Sliding and Double Sliding

If your warehouse is a little short on space, sliding gates are the best choice. The gate slides on a track from above, and are great for storing heavy equipment since you do not have to hold the gate open. Double sliding gates and heights of up to 20-feet make this ideal for vehicle storage.

Service Wicket

In many warehouses, employees interact with customers and delivery drivers filling orders. In order to protect your inventory and be able to offer your customers a good experience a service wicket gate is what you need. This gate is actually a service window and shelf. The window itself is 42-inches wide and anywhere from three to five feet wide.


A dutch wire partition gate operates in the same way as a Dutch door, but give you the option to use your gate as a service counter as well. This is a great option for warehouses that have a single point of entry into their wire partition, but also require a service counter.
