Chained Up for Improved Safety Standards

The AJAX design team has recently developed the safety cage of our Righthite Access Steps by fabricating an optional chain mail skirt to the lower sections.  The development is to keep ahead of changes to health and safety standards and ensures users of the Access Steps are as safe as possible.

 

Should a user slip or trip when working on a high level working platform, the chain mail skirt, fitted as an optional extra to the lower edge of the AJAX safety cage, provides an additional level of safety to prevent the user falling to the ground.

This bespoke model of AJAX Righthite Access Step and Safety Cage is already being successfully used by BASF, Bradford; the world’s leading chemical company.

Improving safety standards on your mezzanine

Mezzanines help to maximise space and create extra capacity within a warehouse or factory facility. All companies with employees working on a mezzanine should be aware of all the relevant safety implications involved with working at height. It’s critical that employee safety is always protected and mezzanines are regularly checked for potential hazards. According to…


Counter Balance Raises the Bar for AJAX Safe Access

The AJAX Safe Access team has just completed the installation of this bespoke eight metre long loading gantry to provide the ultimate in safe access for the workforce. The gantry spans the full length of a tanker vehicle and has a series of hinged trap doors allowing access along the length of a stationary tanker.

As there was no electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic power available on site the AJAX design team developed a new, unique counter balance system to raise and lower the gantry.

 

The engineering within the counter balance allows the platform to be suspended by a cable and pulley system with the counter balance weight being precisely calculated to hoist the platform to its upper starting position and then lowering onto the tanker when an operator applies their own weight.

To complete this project, the AJAX team also manufactured and installed two six metre road barriers with an interlocking system: Fitted to both barriers and the gantry, the interlocking system means it is impossible for a tanker to drive off unless the platform is safely in its raised position.

In our many years of experience, tanker drive-off is the most common cause of damage to loading equipment and, potentially, the operators. The client is extremely pleased with the design of this complete project, its contribution to improve on site safety and its ease of operation.

AJAX Connexions | Original Pallet Gates made Better

The original AJAX Safety Barrier was introduced in 1965; since then it has continually evolved to ensure it continues to accommodate an ever increasing demand for faster operations, larger capacity and improved safety of workers.

Every AJAX barrier provides all-round edge protection designed to prevent injury to pallet truck operatives and other personnel when loading or unloading pallets from various floor height openings.

Today, there are two standard models of AJAX Safety Barrier:
The spring-assisted, over-head AJAX Pallet Gate
The counter-balance, swing arm AJAX Pallet Gate

All standard AJAX Safety Barriers are constructed from mild steel and are supplied with a yellow powder coat finish (BS08E51). Both models come in a range of sizes to handle a single or double pallet width.

As the UK based designer and manufacturer of all AJAX Barriers we can also engineer barriers from stainless steel for use in corrosive or hygienic environments, can powder coat to any RAL colour and can adapt the designs to suit the needs of your operation.
