Selecting the Right Mezzanine Gate Is Imperative to Avoid Mezzanine Accidents and Allow Safe Forklift Access
- Prevent mezzanine injuries

- Avoid workers’ compensation claims
- Decrease Insurance Costs
- Save lives by reducing work-related mezzanine falls and accidents
Mezzanines Create a Very Serious Fall Hazard
Mezzanines create a very serious fall hazard simply because of how high they can be off the ground. Making sure your employees are protected while working on your mezzanine is very important.
You can enclose your mezzanine, but there will be times when the forklift needs to lift material or equipment up to your mezzanine.
The LedgeGuard vertical lift safety gate allows your forklift safe access to the mezzanine without having to remove your fall protection.
Protect Your Mezzanine with LedgeGuard Industrial Gate.
When the access gate for the mezzanine is open for the forklift to deliver product up to the mezzanine, the access gate for your employee on the mezzanine is closed.
Once the product has been put up on the mezzanine, your employee can open the access gate which will close off the forklift access. That means your mezzanine is always protected at the delivery access.
Comply With ANSI By Installing Mezzanine Safety Gates
It is not just a good idea anymore, mezzanine safety gates are now law in many States, simply because they work. There will never be a way to calculate how many accidents have been diverted by using them, but clearly, accident reports have gone down significantly since these products have been adopted into the working environment.
With this improved performance, comes decreased insurance costs, and improved moral, all adding up to a better business model.
As of May 19, 2010, safety gates for mezzanine spaces have a new standard set up to reach out for. It is a dual-gate safety system, approved by the American National Standard (ANSI) published by the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association, part of the Material Handling Industry. The new standards specify that a dual-gate system is necessary to protect the ledges of pallet drop areas on industrial work platforms.
