For over 30 years, we’ve been designing safety gates to secure the ledges of pallet drop areas on mezzanines and rack picking systems. Our safety gates, including the original Roly® Safety Gate, provide fall protection in hundreds of material handling and manufacturing facilities in virtually every industry.
Safety regulations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) can be difficult to navigate; have you sat down and tried to read through the code that pertains to elevated platforms or pallet drop areas? It can be difficult to determine which of the codes apply to that application. When trying to determine the best practice for safety in a facility, ensuring compliance with the proper OSHA codes is mandatory. But, even though those codes are confusing, there is an easy way to ensure you will meet the code: consult the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) first.
How can you determine which safety gate model is the right fit for your application? We've recently updated all of our product sheets to reflect some of the changes we've made to our safety gate product line that can help you make the decision. You can learn about the new safety gate features, best use cases for specific models like the Tri-Side or Open-Top, find out about some of our custom designs and more. And as always, please let us know if you have any questions or want us to drop you some literature in the mail.
Your facility has a pallet drop area that needs to be secured but there is no room for a dual-gate system, right? Wrong. Dual-gate systems can create a permanent, safe environment while taking up a minimum amount of depth on the platform. Recently this issue came to life for a flavor and fragrance company that had pallet drop areas over ten feet off the floor but limited depth on the platform; the company was searching for a way to secure the ledges.
