Workers in industries like manufacturing, chemical processing, and construction need safe work environments, but job sites often require them to traverse ladders and raised platforms. That is where a self-closing industrial safety gate comes in to promote safety.
Our range of solid, industrial self-closing safety gates features a robust spring-loaded mechanism that is built to withstand heavy-duty use and provide permanent hazard protection.
A self-closing gate spring is more reliable than other mechanisms like a latch, chain, or bar that require interaction.
It’s also more dependable than a gravity-assisted single bar safety gate. It provides a simple solution that can save workers from injury and companies from liability.
These self-closing barriers are important to have for both internal and external locations where regular access for maintenance and inspection is required.
Industrial safety gates are ideal for mezzanine floors, platforms with exposed sides, ship ladders, areas around machinery, and anywhere there is a passage through the railing system.
These industrial safety gates are economical, reliable, easy to install, and meet OSHA and ANSI standards.
Specifically designed as a "retro-fit" solution to incorporate into existing fixed structures, these barriers provide an effective solution for fall protection around any access area.
Having the right OSHA safety gate means your job site will be up to code. OSHA safety gate requirements exist ultimately to prevent injury. Your employees will be able to work securely with easy-to-install self-closing safety swing gates for fall protection.
Accidents happen. They can happen if someone is trying to open a locked ladder gate with their hands full of tools. Or, when there’s a gap in the railing that allows someone to walk directly into the opening for a ladder below. These are problems that can be easily solved with a self-closing ladder safety gate.
There are a few important features you should look for to make sure the gate can give you the security that you need.
Mounting an industrial safety gate for stairs or ladders is easy. You’ll just need basic tools like a tape measure, ring spanner, Allen key, torque wrench, and a level.
When you get to the top of a ladder, you don’t want to have to worry about trying to unlock a manual ladder safety gate. Especially if you’re holding onto some tools or supplies.
Similarly, when you’ve reached the top of the ladder, you also don’t want to leave a gap in the railing behind you so anyone could fall through.
Imagine that you are 20 feet high off the ground. You reach the top, but there’s a latch to undo the barrier. That can be distracting when you are trying to keep your balance and increase the risk of an accident. It is better to have a barrier you can simply push open, which then closes after you.
This is what makes a self-closing safety gate a perfect solution. You don’t have to think about opening it, and you don’t have to think about closing it after you.
It’s always vital in any building or structure that you don’t take any chances when it comes to safety. A self-closing safety gate doesn’t require any human interaction to open or close, but it stays closed when someone is not using it. It also fills in any railing gaps you may have and keeps your job site up to OSHA standards.
You also don’t have to worry about the barrier staying open when it isn't supposed to be. It functions as a guardrail when it’s not in use. This minimizes errors and the potential for accidents, injury, or costly non-compliance.
Our industrial safety gates have undergone rigorous testing to ensure both reliability for hazard protection and longevity in materials.
They come in multiple sizes and finishes, and you can affix them to round or square posts of varying thickness. Since they are pre-assembled, all you need to do is choose the correct supplied U-bolt and mount the barrier.
