SHERWOOD PALLET GATE
- Do you have an unprotected high level loading point?
- Can a person fall or a load be accidentally dislodged?
- Are you liable if someone falls or gets injured by falling objects?
The Sherwood Pallet Gate provides protection for personnel working at levels above ground, when engaged in loading or unloading goods by any means, but in particular, by overhead crane or fork-lift.
Where it is necessary to remove a section of protective handrailing or caternary chains, to provide openings on high level platforms or scaffolds for the handling of goods there are periods of time when the high level platform is not guarded and an operator may fall to the ground or the load may be inadvertantly dislodged and fall.
The Sherwood Pallet Gate is designed to give permanent and continuous protection to anyone working at a high level loading point and once installed, the gate must be used by the operator to gain access to the load or goods and they are never without protection.
The Sherwood Pallet Gate comes as a standard or can be ‘tailor made’ for each loading point to accommodate varying site conditions, having regard for height and width of load, head clearance and other variables. For high loads a different configuration is used in the form of an ‘SP’.
The Sherwood Pallet Gate is in the form of a swinging gate, revolving about a horizontal axis between two fixed pivot points and swinging through an arc of 180 degrees for the standard barrier or 90 degrees for the ‘SP’ gate, between its two extreme stationery positions.
One tension spring at each pivot point on the Standard gate provides a rotational assisting moment for easy manual operation. The ‘SP’ gate is a simple counter weighted design.
The standard material used for construction is ‘Duragal’ galvansed tube. The Sherwood Pallet Gate, some time referred to as Sherwood High Level Safety Barriers, up and over gates, or mezzanine gates, is designed to AS 1657, the Australian Standard for Fixed Platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders.
The Sherwood Pallet Gate is robustly designed and built for commercial / industrial use.
