Newsletter 05 – SafeStand® Gate

SafeStand® have developed a self-closing, gravity hinged gate suitable for use with SafeStand® Access Systems.

The gate operates utilising a gravity swing hinge. This ensures that the gate “fails safe” to the closed position.

The arrangement of gate and latch mechanism ensures that even when not “latched”, the gate does not open out from the work platform.

This new addition to SafeStand® Access Systems follows the same principles of previous developments whereby no tools are required for the installation of the gate and it is extremely quick and simple to install. On site trials have been carried out with the feedback from both the users and safety representatives being very positive. Once again SafeStand® have demonstrated an understanding and responsiveness to on site safety requirements and the continual development and enhancements of its systems proves that SafeStand® are the industry leaders in terms of the provision of low level access systems.

SafeStand® Access Systems provide a stable, safe, working platform with unsurpassed load bearing capacity, speed and simplicity of installation.
