SaferGate™ Pedestrian Crossing Gate
In response to customer requests for a rugged, long-lasting pedestrian crossing gate, Wildeck has introduced its new SaferGate™. Designed for easy field retrofit, the SaferGate™ self-closing swing gate installs in minutes on new or existing Wilgard® double or triple guard rail columns and all installation hardware is included. The new SaferGate™ can replace a 4 ft. section of guard rail without modification to existing columns and it provides a 34-5/8” clear opening for pedestrian or cart traffic. According to Hue Schlegel, Marketing Director for Wildeck, Inc., “The new SaferGate™ features a rugged, structural design that can withstand the heavy use typically experienced in a busy warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing operation. When properly installed, it can help reduce downtime, workman’s compensation claims, and lower insurance costs.” The new SaferGate™ has been designed to outlast competitive swing gates on the market and includes high-performance spring hinges that have been tested to withstand over 100,000 cycles. The self-closing gate design protects guard rail openings and reduces accident potential. The SaferGate™ is painted with a highly visible, long lasting safety yellow polyurethane finish that stands up to daily use. Installing a SaferGate™ within new or existing Wilgard® Guard Rail can provide convenient access to protected areas or equipment and safely channel cross traffic to a specific location.
