Standards require any surface above 4 ft. to be guarded by guardrail systems. Any opening in the guardrail system must be protected by an offset rail or self-closing safety gate.
The Model RG (Ready Gate) from Conveyor Components Company is an adjustable self-closing safety gate that meets the current requirements, and is available in two sizes, to protect 16- to 26-in. or 24- to 40-in. guardrail openings.
The gate can easily be field-mounted as left-opening or right-opening, and the included mounting brackets are adaptable to round or square guardrails between 1- to 2-in. in diameter.
The core of the Model RG (Ready Gate) is a stainless-steel spring that resists rust while also ensuring the gate closes fully and automatically. The gate standard construction is a mild steel/carbon steel frame with a UV resistant red color polyester powder top coating and a zinc-rich primer underneath. It is available in colors safety yellow and bright orange.
A strike plate adds additional strength to the gate and a noise dampening foam pad reduces loud noise when the gate closes.
