Omega Space Saving Pallet Gate 

An updated version of a standard design with improved rollers for ease of operation. Now constructed completely with our proven tube clamps system (No welded parts). This means that all parts are replaceable and it can be made to measure for pallets or loads up to 2.5metres high and up to 3000 mm inside width.

It solves this problem: How to provide an economic safety gate for high-level pallet loading where space is at a premium or the area is used for a walkway. or where all-round access to the pallet is required.  Loads can be accessed on three sides. And, when in use, it protects people from coming into contact with moving loads and falls from the unprotected edge during fork truck loading access to the mezzanine floor.

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

Why use this safety gate system?

The Omega pallet gate design has proven the ideal answer to pallet loading issues. Particularly the space saving side frames with free-rolling rollers makes raising and lowering effortless.

Replaces swing gates, removable bars or chains which can be left open.

The innovative Omega safety gates have been specifically re-developed to provide fool-proof safety for personnel working a height. The design is ideal for many loading applications from standard pallets to exceptionally large loads on mezzanine floors, loading docks, and high-level platforms

 The Omega safety gate model is offered to bespoke requirements. See details below - Despatch generally around two weeks - Request a quote for the accurate timescale.

How It Works

The gates mounted between the space saving side frames and have nylon rollers with bearings operated by wire rope pulleys mounted at top of side frames

Mezzbarriers tube clamps are made of malleable cast iron.  Manufactured in conformance with BS EN 1562:1997, a dependable and well-proven material for this type of product. The fittings are then hot-dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:1999 to produce a durable corrosion-resistant finished surface for extended life. Grub screws are stainless steel. Nylon rollers are self-lubricating (low coefficient of friction), excellent wear and abrasion resistance with noise reduction and high Impact strength

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).
