  • Existing mezzanine floor occupying the full length of the building with offices and storerooms.  Access to the storerooms is via two 2000 mm standard height double doors opening onto the walkway in two places.  

  • Existing pallet loading access to walkway was two swing out gates in the walkway barrier.
  • Pallets were loaded with cardboard boxes up to 1850 mm high.  As the walkway was less than the pallet depth the storeroom doors had to be open to create enough loading space.  
  • A risk assessment highlighted the danger of personnel, who were constantly using the walkway for access between offices, of falling through the open gates or coming into contact with moving loads.

* Now more often superseded by the Sigma pallet gate model which is more compact for doorway applications.

  • Existing gates were removed and replaced with two of the Mezzbarriers Omega Nu* models bolted to the wall and braced back to storeroom wall.

  • Inner gate was designed to fold down within the open storeroom doors, allowing safe access for loading full-size pallets whilst protecting all personnel from potential danger.

  • Once pallets were safely landed, the inner gate could be closed. A pallet truck was used to pullet the pallet backward into the storeroom. Which allowed pesonnel safe passage along the walkay.
