GuardDog Self Closing Safety Gates & Ladder Gates

OSHA Compliant Industrial Self-Closing Safety Gates

The GuardDog Industrial Safety Gate is a self-closing ladder gate that provides maximum opening coverage. It is designed to match top and mid-rail heights of OSHA-compliant guardrails and industrial safety gates. When the metal safety gate is installed with the top rail at OSHA’s mandated guardrail height of 42” above the work surface, the bottom rail of the self-closing gate is at OSHA’s nominal mid-rail height of 21”, which ensures total enclosure.  It can be used as a ladder gate, but also any other area that calls for a self-closing industrial safety gate.

GuardDog metal safety gates are available in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes, to guarantee a tight fit and superior safety for your opening concerns.
The GuardDog safety gate system also features a stop on the swing side that complies with OSHA regulations. This feature provides offers extra protection while maintaining maximum coverage for the opening.
