A safety gate is a gate that is designed to restrict the passing of people, objects, or hazards through restrict areas. Product specifications for safety gates include dimension, opening mechanism, entry control method, power or actuation method, and materials of construction.
A safety gate is similar to normal gates and can be single, double, or cantilever door with slide, swing, lift, roll or sink design. The entry system of a safety gate include one-way flow control, two-way flow control, one-at-a-time flow control, alarm-actuated entry and exit, blocked barrier entry, or a safety interlock component. The power source of a safety gate can be electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, or manual. Metal materials for industrial safety gates include aluminum, carbon steel, cast iron, stainless steel, glass, wood, thermoplastics, and composite materials.
