WHAT IS A PALLET GATE?
A mezzanine floor pallet gate serves as a vital piece of equipment for the safe transfer of goods to and from your mezzanine floor. Crafted from robust steel, pallet gates represent an economical and efficient solution when compared to alternatives like goods lifts. These gates can be tailored to accommodate various pallet sizes, offering flexibility in design.
Mezzanine pallet gates are supplied with a durable powder-coated finish, ensuring long-lasting performance in any warehouse setting. The sole additional requirement for utilizing a pallet gate is a forklift truck or stacker capable of lifting your pallets to the finished floor level of the mezzanine floor, making it a straightforward and practical choice for material handling.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF HAVING PALLET GATES ON A MEZZANINE FLOOR?
For safety considerations, maintaining a permanent edge barrier is crucial when loading and unloading goods on a mezzanine floor to prevent accidental falls. Mezzanine pallet safety gates are specifically designed to facilitate pallet loading onto the floor while providing a protective barrier to the open space below. Ensuring a secure method of goods transfer is a fundamental requirement for any business and an integral component of the building control application process.
UP & OVER PALLET GATE
The most widely adopted solution for a mezzanine floor pallet gate is the up-and-over pallet gate. This design is tailored to fit standard pallet sizes and is entirely mechanical, ensuring straightforward operation.
Warehouse operatives can easily position the pallet gate to receive the pallet. Once the pallet is safely loaded onto the floor, they can swing the pallet gate over it, granting them access to the palletized goods. This design ensures a continuous and permanent barrier between the warehouse operative and the mezzanine floor’s edge.
