Keep Safety a Priority
The safety of your worksite is paramount to maintaining successful operations and staying compliant with local operational health and safety regulations. Providing adequate fall protection systems is one of the key ways to protect your employees and worksite. On-site safety equipment such as rolling stairs, catwalks, and swing gates serve as a means of fall protection as they keep your employees safe while also allowing them to pass through and perform their duties. Swing gates are a vital component of your fall protection system as they complete any site’s safe access systems. In particular, swing gates are a passive form of fall protection that allows individuals to pass through them while also ensuring the stability and security necessary to complete their tasks.
At Northern Platforms, we carry a range of safe access solutions to ensure that your work facility is secure. YellowGate swing gates are designed to reduce the risk of on-site injuries by limiting operators from accessing hazardous zones. Let’s look at some of the other benefits of YellowGate swing gates.

Although, as mentioned previously, swing gates are a more passive form of fall protection, they ought to still survive through the wear and tear of regular use. YellowGate’s aluminum gates are great for indoor or outdoor use and can be used as access gates, facility restrictions, and more. Aside from being durable for any worksite, YellowGate swing gates are also highly versatile.

The universal gate design, in particular, makes ordering these swing gates from Northern Platforms easy, as all you need to do is order however many your site needs. That’s it!
