Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc., an innovator in the design and manufacturing of industrial safety gates that provide fall protection for employees in warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing facilities, has designed a hingeless, self-closing safety gate to provide fall protection in elevated pallet flow applications.
The new hingeless pallet flow safety gate design reportedly utilizes the technology in the Dock-Lift design. The Pallet Flow safety gate automatically opens as the pallet is pushed through into the system, and closes behind the pallet once it is through, preventing employees from stepping onto or falling from the edge of the flow lane.
“Pallet flow lanes by nature are hard on safety gate mechanics, as the pallets continually are pushed through the safety gates into the system,” said Chris Conway, vice president of engineering, Mezzanine Safeti-Gates. “By utilizing the same self-closing technology we use on the Dock-Lift safety gates, we can virtually eliminate the need for maintenance and extend the life expectancy of the gate because of the hingeless operation.”
The newly designed Pallet Flow safety gates reportedly feature an easy and controlled automatic opening and closing style as the pallet flow through the system. Pallet flow lanes can also be secured with a dual-gate system such as the Roly® safety gate, depending upon the handling application.
The dual, counterbalanced gate systems offered by Mezzanine Safeti-Gates creates controlled access areas that meet the ANSI standard requirements for pallet drop areas, as well as OSHA and IBC fall protection requirements.
All safety gate designs are available in single and double wide pallet widths, and customized to accommodate specific pallet widths, depths and heights. Power operation and technology is available for all models and can be constructed in powder coated mild steel or electro-polished stainless steel.
