Has this been happening in your warehouse or workplace?
Carelessness, hastiness or sloppiness cause lifting points between different floors to not be (properly) closed, which causes a safety hazard. Manually operated fences, gates or chains are not always properly placed back or closed, leading to all kinds of risks!
You want to ensure that your mezzanine floor or warehouse floor is a safe work environment. Staff members must be protected from bodily harm, while damage to the building and goods is prevented. Being able to work quickly and efficiently, without burdensome and time-consuming safety procedures is a prerequisite.
A safety gate, also called a cantilevered loading platform, is the only safety equipment that fully eliminates these hazards for loading locations with various floors.
The best solution to accomplish this is using a so called ‘safety pallet gate’, also called a cantilever gate. This system offers an excellent and safe barrier for lifting points on higher floors and is an ideal system for mezzanine floors!
How does it work?
A safety gate acts as a lock that either pivots over or moves around the goods transported. This protects people in the vicinity of safety gates on different floors from being injured, as the safety gate forms a barrier between the staff members on one floor, and the load on a forklift truck or lifting mechanism on a lower floor.
The safety gate also prevents goods from falling down and therefore helps to prevent passers-by from getting injured and goods on lower floors from being damaged. Using a safety gate creates ideal safety conditions for pallet lifting points on entresols and mezzanine floors. A safety gate system delivered by Haagh Protection ensures that lifting points are never unintentionally left open again!
The available space, dimensions of the loads and method of transportation are of course unique for every location. This is why various standard and custom solutions are available for virtually every situation. We look forward to helping you choose the right safety gate for your requirements.
