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.

Simple Application

Self closing safety gates are fully adjustable. A single gate and can be applied to openings from 30” to 39”. The gates utilize a U-bolt connection that can be fasted to any 1″ to 1.5″ stringer or post. The U-bolt accommodates any post shape wether it be flat, square or rounded.

Double Gate

For openings from 3 and 6 feet, two gates can be combined to create a self closing double gate. The gate’s stopping mechanism only allows it to open in one direction ensuring it will close securely after use.

Self closing double gates can be easily adjusted in place as needed to align and meet perfectly. The Double Gate is secured with three U-Brackets per post to provide a secure attachment and durability.

OSHA Standard

1910.28(b)(3)(iv)

Each employee is protected from falling into a ladderway floor hole or ladderway platform hole by a guardrail system and toeboards erected on all exposed sides, except at the entrance to the hole, where a self-closing gate or an offset must be used.

Sturdy and Durable

FLS Self Closing Gates are built to last. Constructed from galvanized corrosion resistant components, our self closing gates are engineered and manufactured and to meet OSHA guardrail standards.

FlexGuard Compatible

FLS guardrail components, including Self Closing Gates, are all made from industrial grade tubing and coordinate perfectly when used together. Our self closing gates mount seamlessly with the entire FlexGuard line of guardrail solutions.

One Size Fits All

FLS Self Closing Gates install easily on existing systems and don’t require exact measurements before purchasing. With standard contractor tools, gates can be cut to size on site to accommodate your system’s specific size requirements.
