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.
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.
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.
We often get asked about power operating our pallet drop gates. There are unique aspects to dual-gate systems, and more often than not adding power to these safety gates does not increase the speed of operation. We know every application is different, and have outlined some key aspects to think about when looking to power up your safety in pallet drop areas.
