Mezzanine Fall Protection
While mezzanines are imperative in many industrial applications, mezzanine safety is also a major concern. It’s no surprise that industrial mezzanines pose a significant fall hazard, as they are by their design, an elevated working platform. For the most part, deck railing on industrial mezzanines cover the majority of any issue related to fall protection (check out our Industrial railing section if you don’t have this addressed already), but for specific instances where material needs to go from one platform to the next, or you are in an elevated work-space requiring access, our Horizontal Mezzanine Safety Gate may be just what you need!
Horizontal Mezzanine Safety Gate
The Horizontal Mezzanine Safety Gate offers mezzanine fall protection safety for your employees, while allowing access for material flow, operational movement, or temporary employee restriction. Designed for simple use, the gate slides on either the deck or on a face mounted bracket. Ideal for scenarios with vertical restrictions. The horizontal mezzanine safety gate is designed to meet OSHA standard 1910.23 (a)(2), and includes a 42″ high handrail, 21″ high mid-rail, and 4″ high toe board. Options to operate the gate manually or by the push of a button or remote control. This gate will put your mezzanine concerns to rest. Check here for our vertical mezzanine safety gates.
