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 SaferGateT 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.
