Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc. has extended automation options for power, remote operation, and tracking through its full line of pallet drop safety gates.

Due to the demand for increased automation in material handling, distribution, and manufacturing facilities, Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc. has extended automation options for power, remote operation, and tracking through its full line of pallet drop safety gates. New configurations have been created that work within the flow of a facility’s applications, offer no-touch environments, and work with custom engineered designs.

For example, custom Rack Supported Roly safety gates were supplied for use in a customer’s freezer environment that features very tight bays into which a crane loaded and unloaded pallets. The system features full length gates that extend from the mezzanine deck to the top of the bay and is covered with metal mesh to keep employees from getting their hands too close to the crane while it's operating. The custom gates are powered with a specialty motor that includes a heating element to operate properly in the cold environment. The power allows the safety gates to integrate with the customer’s AS/RS system and track material throughout the process.

Safety gates can be equipped with a range of commercial electric motors, sensors, and remote controls, depending on the technology systems used in the facility. All options are configured so that when the ledge gate is up, the rear gate is down, protecting workers from the ledge as material is loaded or unloaded into the drop area. When complete, the ledge gate is signaled to close and the rear gate will open to provide access to the material while a barrier protects employees from the ledge.
