Learn about our Broome Gates

Steel-Fab Broome Gates, also known as Caterpillar Gates, are roller-mounted vertical lift gates supported along either side by stainless steel roller chains. Otherwise, their construction and function is very similar to that of Roller Gates. Broome gates feature a sloped sealing surface. However, if the sealing surface is vertical, they are sometimes called Coaster or Tractor Gates.
