Pallet Gates are a part of Kee Safety’s KEE GATE product range, they have been designed to provide a safe access solution for factory and warehouse workers who are responsible for loading and unloading pallets onto mezzanine floors or raised working surfaces.
Transporting pallets around factories and warehouses can present a number of safety issues. This is particularly apparent when the worker has to load and unload pallets on mezzanine floors, as this could result in a fall from height. Our pallet gates eliminate this safety issue, as they provide a simple solution that results in employees always being separated from the hazard.
Kee Safety’s pallet gates are designed to fit seamlessly into a new or existing guardrail or barrier and ensure there is continuous protection in place while goods are being moved either up to or down from the mezzanine.
To ensure that our mezzanine pallet safety gates are reliable and comply with international standards, the products undergone stringent testing. Pallet gates have been cycle tested for 50,000 openings to ensure their durability and salt spray tested for corrosion resistance to 672 hours. This allows ensure continuous operation, even in corrosive environments. All test reports are available upon request.
KEE GATE Pallet Gates are constructed using KEE KLAMP and KEE LITE fittings. Due to the nature of the system, in the event of the pallet safety gate being damaged from a forklift or general use, the individual fittings can be easily replaced.
All pallet gates are counter-balanced for ease of use and to ensure a positive open and close.

Pallet Gate - a safe access solution for a wide opening
Kee Safety has supplied a pallet gate to a manufacturing plant of a leading global medical technology company in China. The customer has been expanding its Suzhou manufacturing plant and planned to open a new production line soon. The new facility will be using a mezzanine floor for carrying and storing goods.
The mezzanine by the new production line had a wide opening which wasn’t protected. The wide gap presented a few safety issues, e.g. loading and unloading pallets onto the mezzanine floor could result in a fall from height or somebody below the mezzanine could be hit by moving or falling objects.
The company’s Environment, Health & Safety management performed an audit at the plant and requested a safety solution for the opening on the mezzanine.
Kee Safety Shanghai has been in contact with the EHS manager for a year and were thought of immediately after the audit was conducted. We have recommended KEE GATE Pallet Gate Type D – the Extra Wide Model made from Aluminium, as a safe access solution.
The opening on the mezzanine floor was 3m x 3.1m wide and a standard pallet gate couldn’t be fitted into the opening because the gap was too wide. Kee Safety’s Technical Team recommended extending the tube lengths of the Extra Wide Pallet Gate to fit the gap size.
The extended KEE GATE Pallet Gate fits perfectly with the wide gap and eliminates the risk of injury to the staff.
