We recently upgraded our handrail system on our mezzanine floor to include a hooped ladder access point, along with a Narrow Pallet Pate form our pallet gate range.
The existing handrail contained a double rail Kee Klamp system, with accompanying toeboard to protect those underneath. The added components gave us a safe method of access to the mezzanine level, along with a safe way of loading materials while keeping the collective barrier intact at all times.
Hoop Ladder Access Point
The hooped ladder provided a useful access point from ground level on our warehouse floor up to a raised level which we use for storage purposes. The top of the hooped ladder was also sealed off by a full length self-closing industrial safety gate, ensuring that there is never a void in the handrail system.
Pallet Gate For Loading
The narrow pallet gate (side width of 646mm) allows us to safely load materials to the mezzanine level while again ensuring that the integrity of the overall system isn’t compromised. This particular pallet gate accepts pallets up to 1400mm x 1480mm.
Fixed Guardrail Edge Protection
The handrail was easily constructed with size 8 Kee Klamp Fittings which connects 48.3mm steel tubing. To secure the railing in place, we used the 69-8 Railing Flange because it contains a flat plated edge for attaching toe-board. Toe-board is essential in situations such as this as materials can easily be kicked over the edge and do serious harm to those underneath.
Kee Klamp Stair Handrail
Our mezzanine is connected to a higher level by a simple timber stairs. To provide safe access and to protect along its outer edge, we also installed a double-rail handrail using the Kee Klamp fittings. Sloped and swivel fittings are available to make practically any angle a possibility.
The new additions to our warehouse enabled us to work not only more efficiently, but much more safely as well. Each component was quickly and easily installed, providing a complete, cost effective system.
