Face-on installations are an integral part of the fitment of expandable security gates. This method of installation makes it possible to fit retractable security gates to doors or windows with small or no reveals, and to doors where it is critical not to make the opening narrower with the stack of the gate. The main advantage of the face-on fitment is not making the daylight opening smaller on single doors and therefore still be able to take furniture in and out.

Notice the space where the stack will be when the door is open. (It will slide past the wall). This will ensure that the door opening will not be made smaller. It is critical to use a face-on when there is no other bigger door for taking furniture in or out.
