Protect people from falling from height

Falling from height is a real risk in industrial environments. The DOUBLE AXES GATE securely closes openings, preventing falls. This industrial safety gate is the best choice for securing caged ladders and blocking access to machines and work platforms at height. The DOUBLE AXES GATE is available for openings from 500 mm to 1130 mm.

Made from 100% recyclable polymer

The world’s most sustainable safety gate

The DOUBLE AXES GATE is made entirely of HI-TEP, a polymer developed by Boplan®. This recyclable material represents a major step forward in sustainability. It eliminates the toxic 2-component PU used in traditional safety gates.

Suitable for extreme conditions

  • Extremely long life
  • Resistant to chemicals and UV radiation
  • Superior temperature and dimensional stability

Free from isocyanates

Boplan® High Impact Thermoplastic Engineered Polymer (HI-TEP) contains no isocyanates. The production process of the DOUBLE AXES GATE, therefore, runs in cleaner and safer conditions by reducing health risks.

Key features and benefits include:

Fireproof and resistant to chemicals and UV radiation

DOUBLE AXES GATES have been used worldwide for 20 years in the harshest and most challenging environments, such as the chemical industry and offshore drilling rigs. They are highly resistant to harsh weather conditions, extremely salty environments, and highly corrosive chemicals. The design, composition, and features make the safety gate suitable for any application in any industry.

Extremely long life

The DOUBLE AXES GATE consists of High Impact Thermoplastic Engineered Polymer (HI-TEP) and stainless-steel components. Rust and corrosion do not affect it. These materials retain their structural integrity for a very long time and require no maintenance. The hinge has been tested for over 150,000 cycles. This corresponds to opening and closing 20 times a day for 20 years.

Cost-effective

Compared to traditional metal and PU safety gates, investing in the DOUBLE AXES GATE equals saving on repairs and replacements. Because the DOUBLE AXES GATE prevents falls, financial and other damage to the business is avoided. Examples include reputational damage, lost time, time-consuming and cumbersome work, and safety inspections, etc.

Easy to install

The hinge block opens to the left or right. It is attached with 2 bolts (plus optional adapters for a round tube or I-beam). Then we place the spindle and close the opening with the cover.
 

  • Few tools required: This enables easy, fast and safe installation. Even at great heights.
  • Opens in two directions: experience the ultimate convenience and flexibility of the DOUBLE AXES GATE, designed to open in both directions with an impressive 120° turning circle. The gate opens just as easily to the left or right.
  • We will deliver the DOUBLE AXES GATE according to the requested dimensions, but if necessary, you can shorten the gate on site.

Optimal visibility

The polymer is dyed throughout in a striking signal yellow: RAL 1003. This colour makes it easy to find the exit in any situation. Easily mount a warning sign by drilling holes at pre-marked positions.

No sharp edges, making it safe for hands.

The DOUBLE AXES GATE consists of rounded elements that prevent clothing or limbs from getting caught.

Extensively tested and certified safe

The DOUBLE AXES GATE with an opening up to 950 mm complies with the EN14122-3 safety standard, chapter 8.2 (strength tested and TÜV certified, certificate available on request) and the EN14122-3 safety standard, chapter 7.1.4 (handrail and knee rail). To comply with ISO14122-3 and OSHA1910-1910.29 regulations, there must be a minimum overlap of 80 mm and the top edge of the top rail must be at a height of 1100 mm above the walking surface. The DOUBLE AXES GATE with an opening up to 820 mm is TÜV certified (certificate available on request) and complies with safety standards B-92-1143 and NBN-ISO 7892:1992 (Large Soft Body test). To meet these safety standards, the DOUBLE AXES GATE with an opening up to 820 mm must be equipped with a secondary support button above the bottom bar and have a minimum overlap of 125 mm.

Typical Applications and Environments

  • Fall protection for caged ladders and raised platforms
  • Locking off access to machinery and hazardous areas
  • Integration into existing handrail systems such as the Flex Impact ® range from Boplan
  • Extremely salty environments such as drilling rigs
  • (Petro)chemical industry where corrosive substances and chemicals are used
  • Transportation and logistics centres
  • Warehouses and storage facilities

Optional accessories

End Cap – Black Aluminium

The DOUBLE AXES GATE acts as fall protection for ladder boxes and work platforms and restricts access to machines. When we saw the gate to size, the top and bottom rails are no longer connected. This is resolved with an optional end cap that connects both rails. The end cap provides a finished look.

Black warning sign

The DOUBLE AXES GATE has marked positions where you can drill holes to attach an optional warning sign. Use this handy accessory to provide important information, safety warnings, or instructions.

Adapters for mounting on round objects or I-beams

Our DOUBLE AXES GATE is easy to install. Walls, square ladder cages, and L-beams do not require an adapter for installation. An adapter is required for mounting on ladder cages or handrails with round tubes or I-beams. This adapter is optional and easy to install.
