Nationwide Industries™ Improves Security of Chain Link Double Gates With Introduction of Mushroom Gate Stop

Nationwide Industries, a leader in providing durable, versatile hardware products to the professional fence and railing industry in the United States and Canada, is taking commercial chain link gate security to a new level with a mushroom gate stop.  

Made of malleable iron, the mushroom gate stop holds chain link double gates in place when a drop rod is used. Rather than using pipes or holes dug in the ground, the mushroom gate stop sits above the surface and contains a crevice to hold the drop rod securely. The mushroom gate stop is installed by mounting the stem down into the concrete, with the crevice in line with the gate.

“The mushroom gate stop delivers additional security for industrial applications and expands the Nationwide Industries product line with safety at the forefront,” said Erik Timothy, director of engineering. “The mushroom gate stop is a problem solver for customers installing chain link fences with double gates and reduces the need for ongoing maintenance to keep the gate secure.”

The mushroom gate stop works with a 1” commercial drop rod and 1” pad lockable commercial drop rod on chain link fence applications.
