Wildeck Introduces New Laddergard™ Safety Swing Gates to Guard Hazardous Openings
Continuing its rapid expansion in the area of plant and facility safety products, Wildeck, Inc. has added two rugged Laddergard™ Safety Swing Gates that protect personnel at potentially dangerous openings, including: loading dock ladders; mezzanine or work platform ladders; rooftop access ladders; maintenance access ladders; stairway openings; equipment and machinery platform ladders and stairs; and other applications.
“One of the first installations of our new Laddergard™ safety swing gate was to protect Wildeck’s own loading dock truck pit ladder which drivers climb every day to access our shipping and receiving area,” states Ron Burke, Director of Manufacturing at Wildeck. “Besides the safety railing that surrounds our truck pit, the new Laddergard™ gate has added an additional measure of safety for truck drivers and delivery personnel in this high traffic area.”
Wildeck’s Laddergard™ safety swing gates are self-closing and meet OSHA 1910.23 safety requirements. They are constructed of strong structural steel that withstands the daily use and abuse that many other ladder gates can not provide. All Laddergard™ gates are painted with a durable 2-part polyurethane coating that is a bright safety yellow color for high visibility, even in low light conditions. They are available in two sizes that are adjustable to fit either 16” to 26” wide openings; or 27” to 40” wide openings. All mounting hardware is included and gates are easily installed to existing pipe rails up to 2 inches in diameter.
