  • Liftout Adapter allows for guard rails to be easily taken out for simple structure changes
  • Angle Adapter allows for guard rails fit any corner or take any shape
  • Hinged Gate Assembly
  • The HANDLE-IT Hinged Gate Assembly is the perfect accessory for areas in your warehouse or on your property where frequent walk through traffic occurs yet requires that you maintain safety and security. The Hinged Gate Assembly is available for four foot double guardrail (recommended maximum rail length) and enables your employees and small equipment to easily enter or leave secure areas.
    • The two swing rails are held in a closed position by two 9 1/2" arms affixed to a sliding pole at the rear. The bottom and top rails are joined together and slilde out as one piece. Rails slide forward 90 degrees. When closed, the bottom rail is seated on a steel plate which ensures that both rails remain straight and uniform with the remainder of the guardrail.
    • The Hinged Gate Assembly Kit includes the following:
      •    - (2) hinges which attach to two single rail ends
      •    - (1) rail edge plate which attaches to two single rails
      •    - (1) Hinged Gate Assembly Locking Mechanism including (2) column mounting plates

To ensure proper protection consider the following:

  • Measure overall length of area that is to be protected
  • Is there a protruding object or other unusual configuration to measure? (Going around corners)
  • Is this a single or double rail application? (The height to protect is the key factor)
  • Place the guard rail a minimum of 12" in front of protected equipment

Also Note:  (See Accessories)

Add 1: to dimensions B and C if Lift Out Adapters or Down Guard Adapters are being used:
Add 1.5" to dimensions B and C if using Hinge Gate Assembly
