LedgeGuard is a two-gate pallet and material transfer gate for protecting workers at height.
When the mezzanine side is closed, the load side gate is open ready to accept a pallet. Once the pallet is in position, closing the load side automatically opens the mezzanine side so the load can be moved to where it needs to go.
It has an open-top which is useful if your process involves hoisting materials into or out of the gate and it accommodates pallets of any height.
The clear opening is 59.8” wide which gives plenty of room for standard 40” wide pallets and has a depth of 61.9” that easily accommodates 48” deep pallets. The gate requires at least 84” of ceiling clearance.
The opening in the mezzanine railing systems can be as narrow as 68.2”. If the guardrail opening is larger, Garlock Safety Systems has a number of solutions that will close off any gaps between the gate and the railing to ensure a safe work area and OSHA compliance. OSHA states that any gaps cannot exceed 19” in width.
Intermediate members (such as balusters), when used between posts, shall be not more than 19 inches (48 cm) apart.
