The Safety Gate EX3 System from the Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corp. provides easy access to work and storage areas. The gate also can be used at loading docks as a lowcost alternative to help meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.23 regarding protection for wall openings and holes. The EX3 is constructed from extruded polyvinylchloride (PVC) and has a counterbalance system to help keep the gate in raised vertical position or in the closed horizontal position. The manual Safety Gate EX3 Barrier System is available for openings 5 feet up to 10 feet wide.
The standard gate system includes two 43-inch-high 5-inch diameter steel posts, two 7-inch-high PVC rails with safety striping system and anchoring hardware. The white 7-inch-high by 3-inch PVC rails provide a high-visibility barrier while absorbing 200 pounds of force from any direction. Safety yellow powder-coated 11-gauge steel posts provide support for the rails and make a rugged barrier. The compact design allows the safety gate to be installed in a variety of applications.
The EX3 is easy to operate, as the gas-shock counterbalance system requires less than 25 pounds of force to place the gate in its vertical open position or its horizontal closed position.
