All Dock-Lift safety gates feature automatically closing gates, which ensures fall protection for any worker on the lift. They can be made in multiple configurations, depending on the operations of your dock, the size of the lift, the material being transferred and the available space on the lift. The standard orientation is for the gate to be located on the opposite side of the lift trick, but it can be designed in a ninety-degree configuration. Dock-Lift safety gates in any configuration meet OSHA regulations and ANSI standards for work platform lifts and aerial scissor platforms.
Dock-Lift safety gates are the first safety gate designed solely to create a safe environment for employees moving material to and from loading docks. The safety gate secures the ledges of loading dock lifts, pit mounted dock lifts and scissor lifts, providing fall protection for anyone riding the lift. Hundreds of this gate model were installed in its first year on market.
The Dock Lift safety gate is a self-closing gate designed to automatically open when the loading dock lift is on the ground level so material can be transferred on and off the lift. As the lift elevates, the gates automatically close and lock into place, forming a barrier for employees on the lift that are making the transition into the loading dock area. The gates stay locked until the lift is lowered and back on the ground.
The Dock-Lift gates can be configured in many different ways, and can permanently mount to the rock lift or roll in and out of position if traffic flows over the lift. Mezzanine Safeti-Gates was awarded U.S. Patent No. 9630823 for its swinging gate style Dock-Lift safety gate; additional patents are pending.
