Northern Platforms is pleased to feature a wide selection of swing gates in our inventory, including top solutions from YellowGate, designed to offer superior performance and integration you can trust. Below, we’ll talk about just a few of the key ways swing gates enhance your job site and keep everyone safe. Read on to learn more!
Lower Risk in Key Areas
Regardless of the structure of your facility or your specific application, there are always areas that are at higher risk for slips and falls than others. Rooftops, ceiling catwalks, elevated platforms and other such spaces have a significantly increased danger quotient due to the inherent risk from higher levels, and thus having the right equipment in place is essential. Swing gates help to make sure your team always has something to watch on their back as they climb up high, giving everyone peace of mind.
Foot Traffic Protection
Job sites are busy, and with crew members coming and going as well as machinery moving back and forth with cargo, there’s always a risk for accidents to occur. Gates can be put in place as a guiding path for your team, helping to alleviate confusion and reduce the chance for incidences right from the get-go.
Perfect for Ladders and Elevators
Ladders and elevators are necessary if your facility requires workers to access different levels to get to equipment or resources, but they can also pose safety hazards without the right equipment present. Swing gates can keep everyone in place and keep your equipment secure at the same time, making sure everyone (and everything) is set up for success.
Finally, gates aren’t just good for workers, they can also add an additional level of protection for equipment and machinery. Gates can be used as a deterrent to keep valuable items inaccessible and keep your job site safe after hours, avoiding costly losses and massive headaches along the way.
