Pallet Safety Gate
Mezzanine safety is an issue for almost all manufacturing companies that do their best to utilize their warehouse space as efficiently as possible. Our Pallet Safety Gate offers a simple and safe solution to these mezzanine safety issues.
Pallet Gate Use
EDGE Fall Protection’s Pallet Safety gate is designed to be safe and in compliance at all times. This mezzanine safety gate requires minimal participation with the user. Pallets are raised to the appropriate height on the mezzanine via forklift or other lifting mechanism. The pallet is then pushed through the Pallet Safety Gate until it is placed onto the mezzanine platform. Once the forklift withdraws its forks, the two self closing safety gates automatically shut to prevent employees from being exposed to a fall hazard and maintain mezzanine safety. When not in use, the Pallet Safety Gate acts as an extension of the railing system surrounding it by integrating seamlessly into the mezzanine leading edge and meeting OSHA required standards of 42″ railing and a 200 pound load test.
Pallet Safety Gate Installation
The pallet safety gate has been designed to perform as a stand-alone product, but mounting is required to maintain mezzanine safety. The Pallet Gate comes standard with (2) self closing safety gates, (2) rubber teardrop bumpers on the bottom of each gate to absorb impact form the pallet and forklift forks, toe boards to ensure no material is accidentally kicked off the elevated working surface, two upright posts, and one cross member joining the upright posts to maintain rigidity. The entire system can be assembled on the ground or mezzanine prior to mounting. All components easily bolt together. Once assembled, the pallet gate assembly is stood upright and bolted into the existing mezzanine or substrate via the floor brackets. Lastly, connect the uprights to the existing wall or railing. Please refer to the operation and maintenance manual before installation.
