The safety gates exceed the EU ISO 14122-3 standard requirements and is TÜV tested. The self-closing gate uses gravity to close, therefore it does not depend on springs, dampers, cams or operators. It is easy to install with the same hinge for left or right. Corrosion resistant and maintenance free. Confirms to OSHA requirements.

Best Practice Recommendations
Many swing gates (or safety gates) have been found to have hinges with neither the necessary quality of material nor the design strength to serve their intended function over time. Many older gates also lack integrated toeboards.

CAUTION: Old fashioned flip-over / drop-down gate mechanisms can become dropped objects. Self-closing gates such as the CableSafe Intrepid Safety Gate eliminates this hazard and would be recommended where practicable. CableSafe Safety Intrepid Gate is TÜV Tested.
