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.
Speed and efficiency is a goal of any business today, especially in material handling, distribution and manufacturing. Customers today want to ensure they are operating at their highest levels, and given this goal and the rise of available technologies, automation is top of mind for most of our customers. However, automation of safety equipment is not always top of mind. In fact, manual operation of our safety gates used to be our first recommendation, and it is still a very popular and viable option. We also recognize that power operation and complementary technologies for safety equipment is often needed for automated applications and processes.
Are you headed to ProMat in Chicago this April?
Stop by our booth, S2314 while you are there - we'll have our new power operation for safety gates on display and can talk about ways to automate your safety gates if you haven't already done so, our latest custom designs and our new safety gates for loading docks and dock lifts. We always like to see our customers and partners and meet new friends, and look forward to talking with you about how we can help you make your facility safer, without losing speed or productivity.
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.
