Pallet Gate Safety Barriers
Supporting safer working environments
Ajax Pallet Gates have been designed for the ever-increasing demand in pallet movement, which can accommodate either single or double width pallet sizes. The construction of the Gates provide the necessary all-round edge protection to prevent injury and create a safer working environment at height. The safety gates help eliminate the hazard of falls from height, which is one of the most common cause of injury in the workplace.
Construction and Manufacturing
The Pallet Gates are British manufactured from mild steel, at the Nottingham manufacturing site, and powder coated yellow to BS 08E51 or galvanised to BS 729 to cope with harsh exterior conditions. For food and drink industries where hygiene is imperative and corrosive elements are present, the safety gates construction can be completely manufactured from stainless steel.
Easy Use and Reliable Operation
The spring assisted Gates are designed for easy manual operation and have a proven track record for being reliable when handling and storing materials onto various levels including;
- Mezzanine Pallet Gates for Mezzanine floors
- High level boarding platforms
- Hoisting platforms
- Temporary landing stages
- Entrances and doorways
- Loading bays and docking stations
The Ajax Pallet Gates have a counterbalance operation supported with a locking mechanism to hold its position preventing spring-back injuries.
Ajax offer two different Pallet Gate designs to suit your working environment and your pallet loads: The Roll Over Pallet Gate and the Swing Arm Pallet Gate (see above)
Rollover Pallet Gate

For an area with restricted floor space, the Roll Over Pallet Gate is ideal. Its design allows for the loading and unloading of goods, while only using half the floor space of the pallet load when in its closed position.
A minimum height clearance of 2530mm is required to operate the Gate.
Swing Arm Pallet Gate

The Swing Arm Pallet Gate is a well establish model with a robust construction. Durable and easy to operate, a simple design using counterbalance with no springs. useful if the working environment is subjected to vehicular factory traffic where impact may occur.
Although the Swing Arm Gate requires nearly double the amount of floor space compared to the Roll Over, its different operation style only requires a minimum height clearance of 2200mm to operate.
Bespoke Pallet Gate Safety Barrier Designs
All of the standard Ajax Pallet Gate Safety Barriers are complemented by our ability to customise them to suit your non-standard operations and requirements.
Many of our customers have received a bespoke Pallet Gate to cater for their industry demands. For example, Ajax fabricated and installed their Roll Over Pallet Gate with a custom folding side for a warehouse loading bay. This warehouse gate offered edge protection to employees and visitors.
Not only did the warehouse have limited floor space, but it also had an unfortunately positioned loading entrance, which was very close to the floor edge.
