Mezzanine Safeti-Gates, Inc. (Essex, MA) has added new ways to remotely control its safety gate models. To ensure the safety gates can integrate with the increasing amount of technology used in industrial facilities and ensure productivity is at high levels, the company now offers additional tools, including pneumatic system configurations for its Pivot and Open-Top safety gate models.
Pneumatics provide a safe way to operate some safety gate designs, utilizing existing compressed air systems without the need for electrical configuration. When added to the Pivot or Open Top safety gate models, pneumatic operation coupled with technology can save time and provide efficiencies in applications in which AGVs or lift trucks are transferring material to and from upper levels. Remote operation of the safety gates also lessen the physical movement required of employees working around the pallet. With power operation, the safety gates are even easier to use, lessening the physical strain on employees and making the gates an ergonomic solution that anyone can operate.
