New industrial gate design
Our popular self-closing gate has undergone a re-design.
We are also pleased to say that we at Simplified had a hand in its conception! Having interviewed our customers and drawing on personal experience of the product, we were able to influence the finalised product to include a variety of features:
It is still available 1 metre wide and designed to be trimmed on site to suit, but the new design has changed the depth of the ‘D’ section to comply with the required dimensions EN13374 and EN14122-3 & 4 and has been tested to meet the loading requirements of those Standards.
In addition, the gate is CE accredited to the requirements of BS EN 1090.
The new gate still available in either galvanised or galvanised/polyester powder-coated options and has passed salt spray testing to ASTM B117 - 11 - 55 Neutral solution over 200 hours to assess performance of coating to resist corrosion.
Life cycle testing has also been carried out to BS 6375-2:2009 Clause 6.5 – Opening and closing of Gate through 90 degrees 50,000 cycles giving it class 4 – UK category of duty –Medium.
The centres of the ‘U’ bolts for attaching the gate have also been reduced to ensure they fit within the top and mid-rail of standard handrails. The mounting plate has also now has radiused corners to minimise snagging.
The standard fixing ‘U’ bolts are supplied with the gate for fixing to uprights of 33.7, 42.4 and 48.3 mm diameter and we have introduced an additional optional fixing pack (SGNAFXPK1) when fixing to square, flat or angle uprights.
We have also received confirmation that there will be an installation guide available for download.
