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.
At the ProMat show earlier this month, our team fielded many questions about safety in rack modules. We can configure many of our gate models, including the Roly and Pivot, to provide safety in pallet drop areas within rack modules. Rack Supported safety gates provide cost and space savings as well as more secure connections in the system.
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.
We've recently updated all of our product sheets to reflect some of the changes we've made to our safety gate product line. 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.
