LedgeGuard creates a safety zone for workers handling loads in elevated areas. The easy-to-use system prevents falls from elevated access loading points while transferring loads. The dual gate system meets OSHA 1910.23(c). When the inner gate closes, the outer gate opens, allowing access from below. Once the pallet has been placed in the elevated loading zone, the inner gate can be opened, automatically closing the outer gate to allow safe access to the pallet.
