Optimum Handling Solutions has the answer for your elevated material platforms and mezzanines.

Why use Pallet Gates?

Every warehouse, distribution centre and factory has a number of risks and hazards it must overcome in order to maintain the safety of its employees. Pallet gates are designed specifically to eliminate those risks and hazards, so that workers can go about their tasks without the risk of injury.

As well as protecting employees, mezzanine floor pallet gates also ensure that organisations are not vulnerable to legal claims against them. If a worker was to get injured because the firm has not adhered to the necessary health and safety requirements, they risk being taken to court and having to pay out considerable sums in compensation.

Benefits of Pallet Safety Gates:

  • Increased personnel safety on elevated mezzanines
  • Increased productivity for material handling
  • Easy opening swing gate
  • Available in custom sizes
  • Quality construction ensures low maintenance
  • Designed for new construction projects
  • Adaptable for existing systems
  • Protection at elevated opening for employees
  • Easily move material to your elevated area
  • Economical
  • Requires no electricity

We have standard types of pallet gates; each has been designed to meet the most common requirements of organisations which run warehouses and factories.

In addition, we have the expertise to design bespoke solutions to match your organisation's exact requirements. So if you're not sure if our standard products are quite right for your business, we can discuss a more tailored design.

Optimum Handling Solutions designs safety gates to secure the ledges of pallet drop areas on mezzanines and rack picking systems. Our safety gates create controlled-access areas with dual, counterbalanced gates to ensure one gate is always in place to secure the ledge.

Our gates are designed to meet or exceed the appropriate standards for elevated work platforms, which require the use of a dual-gate system to secure all pallet drop areas. We offer a variety of models to fit virtually any application and welcome the challenge to design a new model to fit your unique requirements.
