Shutters – Securing Brooklyn’s Smaller Applications

Fire shutters are as effective as their larger counterparts in protecting Brooklyn businesses.

Most businesses today agree that security is a necessity, but the first thing that comes to mind when considering a security gate is an unwelcoming heavy-duty, industrial-looking contraption. These can be a major drawback in attracting customers especially for small business.

Shutters are a perfect solution for Brooklyn businesses with smaller apertures such as concession stands, window openings or cashier windows. The good news is that New York Gates, industry leaders in security gate solutions for over a decade, have a full range of shutters specifically designed to give Brooklyn’s smaller applications the same amount of security against thieves and vandals.

Attracting customers even after closing, is especially significant for these types of applications. Duty- free kiosks for example, such as luxury jewelry booths at high-traffic international airports, have commuters shopping around the clock – and if they are closed, window-shopping helps travelers pass the time. A shutter needs to blend in with the overall appearance of the space they protect, be it in Brooklyn or anywhere in the tri-state area. These miniature security gates should not dominate a store, ruin its appearance or detract from its branding.

New York Gates understands these issues and offers every customer a unique client-care experience. This means that they are treated as individuals, offered tailored solutions for their specific needs and receive a security gate that guarantees complete, long-term security. Every shutter designed for an application in Brooklyn and its surrounds, is made by expert craftsman from superior and durable materials. They also come in the widest range of materials, designs, colors and finishes to make sure customers find what they are looking for from a safety to esthetic perspective.

The company also designs and supplies fire shutters to Brooklyn establishments. Both types of shutters are normally fitted with small, 1.5″, flat or curved slats, which can be painted, powder-coated or galvanized. The lowest bar can also be constructed from steel or stainless steel. Stainless steel fire shutters are a popular choice for commercial kitchens in Brooklyn, because they combine functionality and style by preventing rust and matching modern kitchen appliances.

Before a fire shutter is installed, a New York Gates expert analyzes the Brooklyn application to make sure all New York City Fire Department (FDNY) regulations are met. Care is taken that every detail, even the operational motor, meets all industry safety and security standards. They also come with safety features, such as those geared to prevent physical injury, and those to prevent property damage in case of fire – such as closing automatically when triggered by a smoke alarm. They can be closed on a timer, remote controlled, or operated manually with a hand crank and, as with ordinary shutters, fire shutters come in many colors and finishes and are designed for safe and easy operation by Brooklyn business owners and their staff.

The company also does all of its own professional shutter and fire shutter installations, repairs and maintenance to prevent Brooklyn customers from having to replace them in the future. Those installed by inexperienced workers may cause damage and malfunctions.

With so much to consider, New York Gates helps customers in the decision-making process to make sure they find a shutter that meets the aesthetic, building and security requirements of their Brooklyn application — no matter how small it may be!
