The FabEnCo self closing safety gates are easy to pass through and eliminate the need to stop and lift a bar or undo a chain. Installation of the FabEnCo industrial safety gate is simple, requiring only 10 to 15 minutes of your time and using simple hand tools. There’s no cutting, welding or drilling necessary.

BlueWater Mfg Self-Closing Safety Gates

The BlueWater self-closing safety gate is tough, durable, economical, reliable, easy to install, and closely matches the dimensional requirements provided for by OSHA. When the BlueWater ladder safety gate is installed, the top rail is at the OSHA’s recommended nominal height of 42 inches and the bottom rail of the gate is positioned at a height of 21 inches. The self-closing feature employs two stainless steel torsion springs. Each OSHA safety gate is capable of universal swing direction by inverting the installation.

Gravity Self-Closing 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. They are a self-closing gravity design with no springs required. The light weight design has standard sizes in 2″ increments from 16″ opening to 36″ opening, as well as customized sizing that W.S. Safety can handle based on customer requirements.
