Why use the Hi-Gate low headroom safety gate system?

The new Hi-Gate advantages over ordinary up-and-over pallet gates are:
● The open top accepts unlimited load height and allows loading by either forklift or overhead hoist.
● Lower headroom – Can operate below standard room height at 2.35 metres for 1.5 metres inside gate width, and the open top gives significantly more clearance for tall pallets, especially where headroom is reduced.
● It does not protrude over the floor edge, whether open or shut, reducing the chance of collision with a rising load.
● Minimal working depth – The opening gate scissors up to one side (Left or right-handed operation to suit location) – It takes up less operational floor depth.
● An anti-slam damper within the bi-directional gates linking mechanism prevents gates from inadvertently plummeting, preventing operator injury.
● Option for an asymmetric edge gate, which reduces the gap width required. The fixed top half projects out beyond the floor edge to allow clearance of the adjacent handrail – It also allows the edge gate to be positioned nearer to the floor edge for optimum forklift loading.
● Option for custom inside width up to 2.0 metres - Ideal for bulkier pallets or wider load baskets.
● Option for increased inside depth (Up to 4 metres) for handling longer loads by hoist. Loads can remain suspended through the loading sequence and continue beyond the inner gate if required.
● Longer working life – Mechanical construction allows for replacing damaged or worn parts.
● Full compliance with ISO 14122-3:2016 testing and safety requirements - It protects all personnel from moving loads and falling from unprotected edges during loading operations and at all other times too.

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

The innovative 'Hi-Gate' range of safety gates has been specifically developed to provide fool-proof safety for personnel working a height. The design is ideal for loading applications on mezzanine floors, hoist openings, scaffold platforms, teagle openings or hoist doorways. The gate linking mechanism includes an anti-slam damper for operator safety.
