Original Press Release:



Mezzanine Safeti-Gates Introduces Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot Safety Gate



ESSEX, Mass. Feb. 17, 2004 -- Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc., the manufacturer of safety products for warehouse and distribution facilities, announced today the addition of a Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot gate to its extensive safety gate product line. The new design permanently secures pallet drop areas in large rack picking modules and multi-level stacker crane operations.

The Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot gate provides a totally enclosed workstation that prevents exposure to pallet-drop ledges during all phases of material delivery and removal, significantly reducing accidents associated with multi-level material handling operations. The unit allows materials of up to 80 inches in height to be easily loaded and off-loaded from elevated mezzanine ledges. The safety device's 14 pivot points allow the gate to be easily moved over the pallet and high load height.

The Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot gates can be pre-engineered to fit within existing rack structures and fit with any manufacturer's rack systems. The gate configuration consists of two counterbalanced gates and a formed channel that attaches to rack system uprights. The safety gate's pivot components are affixed to the formed channel. When the rear gate is lifted up, the ledge gate closes automatically, creating a fixed 42-inch tall barrier that extends to the floor.

Pre-engineered units have counterbalanced, all tubular four-rail gates to maintain structural integrity, and meet or exceed Cal-OSHA, BOCA and UBC requirements. Overall, the units measure 67W x 64D x 90H inches. The clear pallet drop area measures 60W x 60D x 88H inches, with a maximum load height of 80 inches.

The new Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot units are available in painted steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel or aluminum, allowing for use in hostile or extra-clean environments, such as chemical plants or food manufacturing facilities. In addition, the economical cost and few moving parts make the safety gate ideal for multi-level, high-bay rack picking modules.

Assembly of the Rack Supported High Pallet Pivot gate is easy, and no special tools are required. Economically priced, pre-engineered models are shipped factory direct from stock. Custom-sized units are built upon request.
