Now available! The aluminum ladder safety gate is a lightweight version of our steel safety gates. It is economical, reliable, easy to install, and more closely matches the railings and their dimensional requirements provided for by Federal OSHA.
The gate arm (1-1/4" square, aluminum tubing) is dimensioned to provide maximum opening coverage. The top-rail and bottom-rail are spaced to match the standard railing dimensions required by Federal OSHA.
The Universal Hinge Assembly, made from stainless steel, is versatile, fitting various railing types up to 2’’ O.D. or flat surface mounting. Standard attachment via U-bolts. For railings which are larger or uniquely shaped, contact us, we are able to provide an adapter kit to fit many railing sizes. The self-closing feature employs two (2) Stainless Steel Torsion Springs. Each gate is capable of universal swing direction. Simply invert gate for opposite swing direction.The hinge brackets are adaptable to bolt to flat surfaces (face mounting), i.e. angle iron, flat bar, wall surfaces, etc. When face mounting you should subtract 2.5" (width of hinge bracket) from your opening and then choose the correct gate based on this measurement. For example: for a 24" opening which has flat bar on either side, minus 2.5" is now a 21.5" opening. Choose the LSG-21-ALU, bolt to flat bar and adjust as necessary.
