INDUSTRIAL SAFETY GATES - FALL ARREST SYSTEMS
The Workplace Can Be a Dangerous Area For Many of Your Employees. Are You Protected From Dangerous Falls?
• Prevent injuries
• Reduce medical expenditures
• Avoid workers’ compensation claims
• Save lives by reducing work-related falls and accidents
While some dangers seem readily apparent, when either you or an employee are engrossed in work or conversation, these dangers might not be so obvious or fresh on your mind. The results could be catastrophic, both for your and your business.
Thankfully, this real danger does not need to exist. Fall arrest systems are available that can significantly minimize the risks and put you and your employees’ minds at ease. All that you need to do is to take a walk around your facilities and determine which of the following industrial, OSHA approved safety gates need to be implemented in your workplace.
SentryGuard - Fall Restraint Systems - Cantilever Gate
Named SentryGuard, the cantilever gate provides your shipping and receiving employees with the protection that they need. This device is designed for entrances that are up to ten feet wide, and it is designed to restrict entry. For all entrances that exceed ten feet in width, you need to purchase the double wide gate.
What is very inviting about these cantilever gates is their simplicity. Very little skill is required in order to use them, and they have been purposefully designed to meet (and in most cases exceed) all of the safety requirements issued by OSHA. If you feel that your situation requires a customized solution, then feel free to call 855-717-7475 and schedule an appointment to determine the course of action that you need to pursue.
Double Wide Cantilever Fall Protection Gates
For entry ways that are too large for the single gates, as well as making sure that all of your shipping and receiving pits are secure, the SentryGuard double wide safety gates are the answer for which you are looking. They are designed to at least meet (and generally exceed) all of OSHA’s safety regulations.
Because of how important both the single and double wide gates are to the safety and well being of your employees, it is imperative that the right selection is made. If there is any question about which gate should be chosen or how they need to be installed, do not hesitate to call 855-717-7475 and schedule an appointment to get the counsel that you need.
Mezzanine Fall Protection Gates
The Mezzanine level can prove quite perilous to your workforce. A fall from this height could leave one of your employees seriously injured, possibly coming away with permanent damage that they will carry with them for the rest of their life. Ideally, the safest thing would be to completely enclose the mezzanine to prevent such an unfortunate incident from occurring
Unfortunately, you will most likely need to retain some type of access for forklifts, meaning that completely enclosing the mezzanine is impractical. Therefore, you need to institute a compromise: enclose the mezzanine with rails to prevent falls while having a gate that can be opened for forklifts to both deposit and receive inventory.
LedgeGuard is a gate that is designed for installation on the mezzanine that permits your forklifts to access inventory without compromising any of the mezzanines safeguards. There are two different gates, one which closes off access for employees on the mezzanine, and one that closes access for the forklift. It is designed so that when one of the gates is open, the other is closed.
The benefits offered by LedgeGuard are quite significant: the forklift is capable of accessing the Mezzanine at any time, while all of your employees are protected at all times from both the operations of the forklift and the prospect of accidentally falling through an open gate.
Swing Fall Protection Gates
Most of the time, the cantilever gates are the best option for securing entrances. In some situations, you might find yourself confronted by the rare occurrence of needing a gate that is smaller than the single cantilever gate. If you find yourself in need of a such a solution, then look into the security provided by swing gates.
What sets the swing gates apart from the cantilever design is the variety in size. You have three choices from which you can choose (ten feet, five feet, and four feet), making it highly likely that you will find the safety equipment your workforce needs. From enclosing a rooftop ladder to closing off shipping docks, you will find the swing gates to be a versatile solution to a wide variety of hazardous situations..
Even with all of this flexibility, it is quite likely that you might encounter a situation that is unique. If you believe that you have a safety hazard that requires a specialized solution, then get an appointment scheduled so that you and your business can receive all of the counsel necessary for finding the right protection for your situation. Call 855-717-7475 today for expert help in providing the best safety for your jobsite.
Self Closing Fall Protection Gates
For employees who are required to access high areas within your facility, the safety equipment that you need to acquire is the self closing gate. This safety feature is designed to close automatically once you or your employee have passed through, and they can be easily fitted to an existing railing.
Each gate is outfitted with gas struts which trigger the gate to close automatically. Coming in three different sizes (five foot width, four foot width, and three foot width), they are quite easy to install. An added feature that can be installed on each gate are grab bars: these are railings that are designed for you to grab onto and pull yourself up onto a platform. If you believe that you have a special scenario that requires a unique solution, then call 855-717-7475 to set up an appointment so that you can find the safe solution to all of your hazardous situations.
