Pallet Gates are a part of our KEE GATE product range, they have been designed to provide a safe access solution for factory and warehouse workers who are responsible for loading and unloading pallets onto mezzanine floors or raised working surfaces.
Transporting pallets around factories and warehouses can present a number of safety issues. This is particularly apparent when the worker has to load and unload pallets on mezzanine floors, as this could result in a fall from height. Kee Safety's pallet gates eliminate this safety issue, as they provide a simple solution that results in employees always being separated from the hazard.
Our pallet gates are designed to fit seamlessly into a new or existing guardrail or barrier and ensure there is continuous protection in place while goods are being moved either up to or down from the mezzanine.
To ensure that our mezzanine pallet safety gates are reliable and comply with international standards, the products undergone stringent testing. All test reports are available upon request.
KEE GATE Pallet Gates are constructed using KEE KLAMP and KEE LITE fittings. Due to the nature of the system, in the event of the pallet safety gate being damaged from a forklift or general use, the individual fittings can be easily replaced.
