Why use this safety gate system?

This new concept pallet gate has features designed to solve specific problems not addressed by other models.

What’s so special?

Conforms to BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016 Mezzanine Gates

Does not protrude over floor edge. No overhead bars when loading. Less risk of damage during the loading operation.

Fitted with 100 mm high Aluminium kick plate

When the operator pulls down the inner gate, the mechanisms incorporated in the side frames automatically pivots up the two edge gates to the vertical position either side of the opening. See video on this page.

When used with standard pallets the side frames can be reduced for space saving and allows good access to a pallet on three sides. This model can also be used with a vacuum handling crane for unloading bags or sacks etc. Read more about special applications below. With inner gate raised this model offers more usable floor space for confined areas.

The design can be adapted for use with inward opening doors or roller shutters and is especially useful for use with hoists on low runway beams. When the gates are fitted to deeper side frames it allows the inner gate to fold up, under the runway, behind the load when landed. 

The construction is a combination of our tried and tested standard tube and component construction merged with specially designed pivot joints and tube rotators.

This design allows us to produce a bespoke low-cost gate which can be easily adapted (See below) not only in height, width and depth but will also be easy to assemble and adjust on site to ensure optimum operation
 

Finish

  • All galvanised
  • Safety yellow thermoplastic (Warm to touch) coated tube and galvansed components
  • Special RAL colour powder coated tube 

Special applications

In addition to normal forklift loading, this model can be used with hoists, in doorways, and with vacuum handling cranes - See notes below

 Bespoke inside width - We recommend that you allow at least 200 mm load clearance for the inside gate

 Overall width including side frames. Gap required for edge gate – Mechanism increases overall width to + 800mm

 Standard Installation requires 8 x M12 Bolts/Anchors (Not provided)

Special notes:  (You can tell us about any special features or extras you require in the additional information box.

The depth of the gate will vary according to height and depth of the load to be cleared by the fold down the inner gate and the length of side frames. Overall height varies according to the length of side frames.

Usually, there is a trade-off between space-saving and load clearance requirements. The longer we can make the side frames the lower the fold down inner gate can be to clear the load. 

For minimum height with fold-down gate behind load depth, we recommend that you allow at least 150mm load clearance on inside height to use pallet truck to remove load..

Information we need:

We will need to know the unrestricted headroom above the gate location.  The edge gate will usually be much lower than the inner gate.  The headroom at the edge is often lower as on most mezzanines there can often be a roof support beam above as the mezzanine is often supported by the building columns.

Loading by hoist

If you intend to use the gate for loading with a hoist with or without doors, the side frame will need to be of sufficient length for the inner gate to fold back up behind the load.  The inner gate needs to be closed to access the load.  The load has to be landed to disconnect from the hoist within the safety area and a non-wheeled load can then be moved further in by landing onto a suitable trolley or pallet truck.

We will need the height to the underside of the runway beam.  Special note: If headroom is very tight you may need to alter the hoist feed system as the gates could foul the hanging cables.

Unloading pallet contents with a hoist

For applications where the palletized load is to be unloaded e.g. vacuum hoist for sacks. The side frames can be made with minimum depth and the inner gate raked forward in the folded position when shut. This allows the hoist to swing over the entire pallet.

If you can give us the precise dimensions we can calculate the optimum dimensions required to clear the load. 

Doorway applications

This model can also be used with inward opening doors (See case study). You will need to drill 2 x 50 mm diameter holes in the wall each side of the door frame at knee rail and handrail height for the active mechanism tubes which will hold the outer gates.  

We will require the proposed hole cross centres and the thickness of the wall to finalise the arrangement. The outer or edge gates have vertical posts which will need to land on a ledge. If no ledge exists, you will have to bolt a short bracket to the wall at the centre of the outer face door sill. Alternatively, for wooden floors, a floor plate with a lip (see below) can be used to protect the floor and protrude under the door{s} to provide a landing for the external edge gate.
