Sampson Commercial Swing Gates

The Sampson Gate collection provides a permanent, upscale architectural swing gate for any commercial application. If you are looking for a proven engineered gate solution for dumpsters, trash enclosures and outdoor storage areas, the Sampson is an excellent and affordable solution. The Sampson commercial gate collection incorporates an extruded tubular aluminum framework that encapsulates the wide variety of infill options.  The aluminum framework is a U-shape, providing a full finished edge on all four sides of the gate infill materials.  This is an architectural gate solution when aesthetics matter. Sampson commercial swing gates are available in a wide variety of infill options including composite wood, vinyl, aluminum and louvers.  When architecture matters, our planks may be placed in a modern horizontal or traditional vertical pattern. Unlike any other swing gate manufacture, Sampson commercial gates are sweep blasted and powder coated in an endless number of colors.

Mini Louvered

Design:  Single extrusion combination of louvers and perforated back panel. Very little visibility as the louvers slightly overlap in combination with the perforated sheet.

Thickness:  1” wide

Width:  6” tall panels are interlocking to form a consistent louver design.


PalmSHIELD‘s TIBERIUS architectural semi-private aluminum gate infill is a great option for offering both privacy and ventilation.
