PickSafe™ Finger Gate

The new PickSafe™ Finger Gate creates a fall barrier for workers picking pallets or stacking empty pallets while on an elevated work surface. This ANSI- and OSHA-compliant gate is pushed open by a pallet, and then durable springs allow it to self-close as the pallet is unloaded or clears the gate.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: Pick Lines Need To Be Safe Without Being Slow
The heart of almost every busy distribution center or warehouse / fulfillment center is its pick line. Essentially the pick line is the area or process (the phrase is often used to describe one or the other or both) in which workers or machines select or "pick" products or items for an order or for shipment. The success of any pick line, then, relies on how quickly and efficiently this system works. However, speed cannot be the only consideration, since this complex dance of people, products and machines must work in harmony to be productive and – most importantly – safe.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: The Importance Of The Spring On Your Safety Gate
PROVEN SOLUTIONS: The Importance Of The Spring On Your Safety Gate
For a safety gate to be effective, it needs to prevent an accident. In most cases, that means the gate must be closed when not in use, serving as a barrier against whatever risks are on the other side of it. One of the primary features that sets a safety gate apart from a regular gate in this regard is that a safety gate closes on its own after someone goes through it. This self-closing action happens thanks to heavy-duty springs, and if those springs aren't doing their jobs properly, the safety gate's protection is compromised and its lifespan is diminished.
