Gravity Swing Gates

Gravity Swing Safety Gates

Our gravity self closing safety swing gates are another great option for protecting ladder openings or other fall hazards. These provide a cost-effective alternative to plastic or polymer gates with superior safety.

W.S. Safety can provide standard sizes in 2″ increments from 16″ opening to 36″ opening, and custom safety gates sizes are available. The light weight design does not use springs to recoil, rather have an angled hinge that allows them to close automatically behind the user with gravity alone. These gates are most popular for refinery areas with lower use frequency. They require minimal maintenance (greasing the pin as required), and don’t have any springs that can fatigue or break over time.

The steel construction is built to last, available in either standard galvanized steel or painted finish. Keep your workers safe with a cost-effective alternative to other self-closing safety gates.
