Self closing gates for the rail industry

Self closing safety gates provide the rail industry with a safety solution for passengers, maintenance staff and engineering teams.

Ideal for use in rail environments, Kee Gate self closing safety gates are particularly suited to providing safe access and egress on one or both sides of a railway track, on parapets, bridges and around electrical and signal boxes. Kee Gate ensures maintenance and inspection staff can fulfil their job, follow best practices and comply with current safety standards, without putting their safety at risk. The Kee Gate range is spring loaded so the gate automatically closes behind the user, providing an added level of security and overcoming the potential for human error.  This type of system is the preferred solution to chains, bars or sliding tubes, as these traditional forms of protection can lead to a hazardous void, when used incorrectly.

The Kee Gate self-closing safety gate range is available in galvanised steel and if required can be powder coated in safety yellow. The safety gate is available with standard 'U' bolts for fixing to uprights of 33.7, 42.4 and 48.3 mm diameter, enabling the gate to be fixed quickly to existing supporting structures, posts or stringers. An additional fixing pack is provided which allows the gate to be fixed to square, flat or angle uprights. Easy to install on all types of handrails or to retro-fit to existing structures, such as work and access platforms, Kee Gate is 1 metre wide. Designed to be trimmed on-site, this solution saves companies the time and money it takes to fabricate their own gates.

Kee Gate is compliant with the requirements of EN ISO 14122 Part 3 and Part 4, EN 13374 Class A, and is CE marked to EN 1090. The system has undergone extensive testing to ensure total reliability of the gates. These include salt spray testing to ASTM B117-11 Neutral solutions over 200 hours to assess the coating’s corrosion resistance, life cycle testing to BS 6375-2:2009 Clause 6.5 – Opening and closing of Gate through 90 degrees 50,000 cycles and Abuse Testing where 9 x 25kg weights were suspended from the gate to test what happens if pressure is applied. This ensures durability, superior corrosion resistance and defence against signs of wear.
