MTA Safety Gates

Signs and Decal hand-builds MTA safety gates at our Brooklyn shop. These stout portals will be familiar to New York City’s subway riders. Safety gates are often the fastest way off the platform and they reduce bottlenecks at the fare collection turnstiles. Our new generation gates benefit from lessons learned in the MTA’s Enhanced Station Initiatives. Fare evasion, ease of use, aesthetics, and, durability considerations helped us deliver this balance of matched components. As with many of our MTA metal pieces, this gate features the Astoria Black Powdercoat. We installed a best-in-class Stanley closure system, reinforced frame, plates, and mesh, as well as a robust hinge mechanism. These premium components are fastened with tamper-proof hardware for ease of maintenance or hand-welded by our master fabricators for a lifetime of service. Finishing is also done by hand to produce a cleaner, stronger gate than any automated assembly line can produce. This is the Rolls Royce of transit gates, made in Brooklyn with love for the people of the greatest city on earth . . . and our many cherished guests!
