Self Closing Gates

Industrial Self-Closing Safety Gate

Flexible Lifeline Systems has a complete line of self closing safety gates engineered to allow traffic flow while providing hazard protection. Self-closing, spring-loaded gates foster a safe work environment by automatically closing after use securing the area. The system resets itself and does without requiring a worker to reset a bar or chain.

Self closing safety gates provide protection for indoor and outdoor industrial applications including any openings, ladders, stairs, rooftop hatches and controlled areas, where regular access for workers is needed. The gate can easily be fitted to existing systems where protected access is needed.
