Below you'll find some handy answers to Frequently-Asked Questions relating to this product.

Question: Are floor fixing bolts supplied with a pallet gate?

Answer:

Floor fixing bolts are not included with the gate as floor material and thickness vary greatly. The base feet have 14 mm dia holes. You will need M12 bolt sets for wood or steel floors. For concrete floors, anchor bolts should be used. Thin wooden floors may need extra large washers underneath to relieve stress around the hole. Check the number of bolts required in the pdf layout which can be downloaded on the product page.

If the underside of a wooden floor is blocked off, you may have to use coach bolts or rubber nuts for better grip. The rubber nut for an M12 bolt will require an M24 hole. The nut is a synthetic rubber sleeve with a flange head and a threaded brass insert at the opposite end. Used in hollow base materials where the anchor can expand in the cavity.

Question: How long does it take to install a pallet gate?

Answer:

Generally, it takes about two hours for two semi-skilled operatives to install a pallet gate on a mezzanine floor. If an existing handrail has to be removed it may take longer.

A risk assessment should be carried out prior to installation to include fall protection. Drilling into the floor (Concrete) or through the floor, which will require safe access to the underside of the floor to fit nuts and washers to fixing bolts. No welding is required.

If you have to make a gap it should be no more than 160 mm (80 mm per side) wider than the overall width of the chosen gate. You can download a pdf layout showing the dimensions on the product page.

Before you commence installation please read the installation instructions supplied with your pallet gate. If you can't find the instructions please contact us for another copy. Ensure the area of installation is clear and that all the gate sections are accounted for as shown in the installation instructions.

Question: Can you supply additional handrails for my project?

Answer:

Yes, we supply ready-made posts and handrails for mezzanines and platforms in conformance with BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016. See our handrails here.

Question: Why buy Mezzbarriers pallet gates?

Answer:

The Mezzbarriers range differs from other pallet gate systems and methods of construction, various advanced features are incorporated into the design, production and finish with the clear aim of optimising the high quality and long life of the product.

Vibration resistant Interclamp® fittings with stainless steel screws for increased corrosion resistance have been subjected to stringent vibration endurance resistance tests by an accredited independent test laboratory. In high quality galvanised finish – Interclamp components and tube are hot-dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:2009 giving a corrosion resistant finish for extended life.

Special high-strength fabricated bolted components where needed to protect excessive leverage weak points are zinc sprayed finish. Pivot points have no-maintenance nylon bushes.

Kick plates are in aluminium material. 6063T6.- Alloy tube is used in some wider models to reduce operator fatigue.

All parts are replaceable in the event of damage.

Question: Do your pallet gate have a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) approval?

Answer:

Our double gate systems comply with BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016 in design and test criteria for mezzanine gates.

The HSE and other experts say that these approved types of safety gate must always be used to secure the loading area as they safely protect all employees from moving loads and falling injuries during the loading process. And, at all other times too!

Question: Can you install my pallet gate?

Answer:

Unfortunately no, but don’t worry, we include installation and safe use instructions.

Our pallet gates are very simple to install with just a few tools. Our pallet gates as shipped with all the main sections pre-assembled and installation usually takes about two hours for two semi-skilled operatives.

As platform surface materials vary, we don’t include fixings. You will need to drill holes for M12 bolt sets or anchors depending on the floor construction.

Question: Do you provide a pallet gate site survey?

Answer:

No, but we have successfully supplied pallet gates all around the UK and as far as North America and Australia without us visiting the site. Just a few dimensions are needed. To get started download our Pallet gates at-a-glance (PDF).
