Original Press Release:
Mezzanine Safeti-Gates Introduces the Pallet Flow Pick Module Swing Gate to Its Extensive Safety Product Line
January 13, 2003-Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc., the manufacturer of proactive, dual-gate safety devices for warehouse and distribution facilities, announced today the addition of a new safety gate to its product line. The Pallet Flow Pick Module Swing Gate is a safety gate designed for high bay rack picking modules integrated with flow rails.
Pallet Flow Pick Module Swing Gates are ideal for picking bays with multiple deep pallets in which pallet flow prohibits the use of dual gate safety devices. The gates open automatically when the pallet is pushed into position on the pallet flow rails, and close automatically when the pallet flows into the picking position of the system. The safety gates fit into all manufacturers' rack, and can be designed for new construction projects or retrofitted into existing systems.
"We saw a great need for safety devices in high bay rack picking bays," said Aaron Conway, vice president of Mezzanine Safeti-Gates. "In many distribution centers, the flow system allows multiple pallets to be stored deep in the rack bays. These bays are being decked over and employees are walking out onto these areas when pallets get hung up or stalled. Typically, these areas are open and offer no protection to employees, and customers have indicated that falls from these areas have resulted in serious injuries and some fatalities. Protection in these areas is crucial, and the Pallet Flow Pick Module Gate will provide safety to employees that walk out onto these areas."
Assembly of the Pallet Flow Pick Module Swing Gate is easy, and the rugged construction ensures low maintenance. Hinge brackets attach to existing rack, and the gates attach to the brackets. Strong torsion springs allow the gates to open and close automatically.
Pre-engineered units have few moving parts, and meet or exceed OSHA and BOCA requirements. Standard gates are 42 inches in height, and are available in various widths. Gate depth is minimal, and the installation of the gates has a minimal reduction of the pallet-drop area width. Pallet Flow Pick Module Gates can also be custom-made to accommodate various heights and widths. Gates are powder coated in safety yellow, and custom colors can be ordered.
