Many industries are replacing their old safety chain at the top of steps with OSHA-approved and self-closing ladder gates.
What is the OSHA requirement?
Enter the EdgeHalt Ladder Safety Gate. The new upgraded gate is an essential addition to any ladder, providing a protective gate after someone moves up and through the ladder. It closes the gap and provides protection continued by existing guardrails.
Self-closing gates are important because employees don’t need to think about closing a gate after walking through, especially when carrying things. Employers and managers don’t need to ensure that chains or normal gates have been closed but can confidently know their employees are safe.
What are the new updates?
- The earlier version of the Edgehalt had a 4” adjustment range, but the new upgrade now has a 10” range of adjustment. They are also available in a larger range of openings for each model size.
- They include a slam-proof dampener.
- The springs to ensure the gate is self-closing were tested with more than 1 million cycles and exceeded all tests.
- The new gates are packaged with a more compact design, and easily shipped out, lowering the cost to you.
Having the new Edgehalt ladder safety gate installed is an obvious choice. Peace of mind for your employees and contractors and a low-maintenance answer to your fall protection.
