Our loading dock gates come with variable widths making them easy to select.
Expertly designed with patent pending features, this gate provides smooth operation and pinch point free access. This loading dock gate lifts vertically with one hand, moves 90 degrees to give access to restricted areas. Lock out tag out (LOTO) is no issue. Our line of loading dock gates can have LOTO applied ensuring the right people do not find themselves in the wrong areas.
Available in two configurations: Single (48″ to 156″) and Double (108″ to 324″). Our gate configurations accommodate a variety of opening sizes anywhere from standard dock doors to extra wide hangers and factory areas. Overhead clearance can be an issue in some places. Our double loading dock gates solve this issue by halving the clearance needed. Toe boards are available with many models and give extra edge protection by preventing falling objects.
Manual gates for loading docks and mezzanines act as fall protection only when the product is closed and latched. Where applicable 100% tie-off is required or other means of fall protection should be in use when the gate is open or being operated. In situations where a truck or trailer is positioned near a gate opening. The employer is responsible for implementing a proper gate usage and material handling policy for the safety of workers near a gate protected fall hazard. Installation guides and brochures are available in tabs below the table.

Things To Consider (Installation and Use Regulations)
All EdgeSafe® Smart Single Dock Gate configurations as well as 60-3410, EdgeSafe® Smart Double Dock Gate 108″-168″ are approved for fall protection and compliant with:
OSHA 1910.29, ANSI A1264.1-2017, ISO 14122-3:2016, and Canada OHS SOR-86-304 Part II code
Toe Boards must be used for any gate installed at a height of 6′ or Higher
OSHA Walking Working Surface Standards
OSHA’s Walking-Working Surface Regulation 1910 Subpart D requires a barrier be in place to guard any opening on platforms elevated four feet (4′) or higher on which an employee is working, and that the barrier be in place when the opening is not in use for handling materials.
A toe board (or equivalent) should be installed on dock gates when there is exposure below to falling materials.
A standard railing consists of a top rail 42” off of the deck and an intermediate rail and must withstand a 200 pound force applied in any direction except upward.
Only a dual-gate system ensures compliance with OSHA because a dual-gate system will always have a barrier in place. A dual-gate system does not depend on an operator to remember and make an effort to close the barrier.
Single-barrier systems that meet OSHA specifications only meet OSHA when the barriers are closed. Barriers held open by a staged pallet (as is the case with a swinging gate) are in violation of OSHA.
