One Way Safety Swing Gate

In 2021 and 2022, over 450,000 workers were injured because of falling, slipping, or tripping. Protect your personnel and comply with up-to-date Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements by installing an industrial safety swing gate near access pathways.


What is an Industrial Safety One-Way Gate?

The purpose of self-closing safety gates is to prevent falls when personnel use walkways, ladders, or elevated platforms. The safety gate allows workers to enter in one direction only, automatically closing afterward.

By placing a one-way swing gate in front of stairway access to a loading platform, you keep employees from falling backward if they slip. All at-risk personnel need fall protection, but it is critical for workers carrying heavy loads, transporting raw materials, or moving equipment between levels.

Why Does Your Business Need an Industrial Safety Swing Gate?

Wherever there are fall risks, an industrial safety one-way gate is a requirement, not an option.

Fall Statistics

Workplace falls can cause serious injuries. In 2021 and 2022:

  • Almost 100,000 workplace injuries involved falls to a lower level.
  • Over 30,000 falls happened in manufacturing businesses.
  • Nearly 20,000 falls involved construction workers.
  • More than 18,000 fall injuries involved trade contractors and maintenance personnel.

An industrial safety swing gate protects your workers and your business.

OSHA Compliance

OSHA guidelines require safety gates in openings or access points that meet the following criteria:

  • Top rail at 39 to 45 inches
  • Self-closing operation
  • Intermediate and top rail sections
  • Load resistance of 200 pounds

Chains, drop bars, and single-bar gates are not OSHA-compliant.
