The range of KEE GATE Self Closing Safety Gates from Roof Edge Fabrications is designed to protect openings such as on ladders, walkways, with edge protection systems on roofs, around machinery or as part of a demarcation system within industrial building.
The KEE GATE range of single and double safety gates has been independently tested and comply fully with the requirements of EN ISO 14122 2016 Safety to machinery. Permanent means of access to machinery and EN 13374 Temporary edge protection systems. The gates’ reliability is assured by extensive testing including salt spray testing to ASTM B117-11 Neutral solutions over 200 hours to assess the coating’s corrosion resistance and life cycle testing to BS 6375-2:2009 Clause 6.5 – Opening and closing of Gate through 90 degrees 50,000 cycles.
Spring loaded in design, the gates provide guaranteed protection by automatically closing behind those who pass through the gate. This overcomes the problem of human error where people can forget to replace other forms of protection such as bars or chains.
The single self closing safety gate is supplied 1 metre wide but can be easily cut to size on-site. Installation is quick and easy, via two U-Bolts which attach the gate to a variety of uprights or surfaces. A standard metal hacksaw can be used to cut the tube to the required gap size.
The double self closing safety gate is designed for applications with openings between 1m and 1.8m wide. A key feature of the product is that it does not require a locking mechanism to be used by the operator. Strengthened attachments and additional fixings when compared to the single gate guarantee that the double gate forms a compliant barrier once a person has passed through.
The Self Closing Safety Gate is also available as part of a kit with guardrail to provide safe access when accessing a roof from either a fixed or cat ladder. Click here to find out more about our KeeGuard® Ladder Kit
