Case Study for Pallet Gate Used in Opening with Inward Opening Doors

Client : Clean Room Construction Company

Requirement: Pallet Gate for high level doorway.



  • Inward opening doors for pallet loading.
  • Very low headroom due to external overhang and even less headroom inboard of doors with sloping beam and light fittings.
  • Narrow ledge outboard of doors when closed made external mounted gate impossible.

  • Supply of  Sigma model combination low headroom double pivot edge gate mounted outboard of doors with pull down inner gate.
  • Connection of mechanism between both gates made through drilled holes in wall either side of door frame.
  • To save space when not in use, the side frames were made shorter than the pallet. The inner gate height allowed gate to swing back over to clear the rear of the pallet
  • Design allows operator to open doors with edge barrier closed. This allows them to pull down the inner gate safely
  • Protects all personnel on the upper level whilst pallet loading is carried out.  Once the pallet has been safely landed the operator can fold back
    up the inner gate which closes the edge gate allowing safe access to pallet.
  • Successful installation carried out  by client.
