Self Closing Safety Gates
FlexDecks has a complete line of self closing safety gates that provide protection while accessing exterior, interior and rooftop applications. These spring-loaded gates automatically close behind the user without having to reset a bar or chain eliminating the potential for human error. It is an ideal OSHA compliant solution for any openings, ladders, stairs, hatches and controlled areas. The gate can be easily applied to virtually any system where protected access is needed.
Single FlexDecks Safety Gates adjust to standard width openings from 30” to 39”. Additionally, the gates are engineered with U-bolt clamps which allow seamless mounting to any flat, square or tubular stringer or post from 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter. No other industrial grade self closing gate is as flexible in application.
For wider openings up to 6 feet, two gates can be used in combination for a self closing double gate. This is due to the stopping mechanism which restricts the gate to opening in a single direction so it will reset securely after use. The adjustable nature of FlexDecks double gates allows the gates to align and meet perfectly.
FlexDecks Safety Gates are designed to integrate with any safety system in areas where restricted access is needed. Our gates have been thoroughly tested for durability in order to accommodate any environmental condition, so they can confidently be used in the harshest work environments while maintaining OSHA compliance.
