Mezzanine flooring can make a significant impact on the productivity of a warehouse, utilising space that would otherwise be wasted. This can help businesses to improve their dispatch times and reduce the need to move to new premises.
However, as we explained in our recent post health and safety should always be at the forefront of your operations. While mezzanine floors are by no means unsafe and can in fact help you to make your business better organised and therefore safer, you should still make every effort to protect your employees.
Pallet gates are one key way to do this. They can be used in conjunction with a mezzanine floor and enable you to safely load items from a height, for example by using a fork lift to offload heavy items on to your mezzanine floor. Pallet gates protect your employees at the exposed opening points on mezzanine floor edges.
Like many of our safety features, pallet gates come with a glossy powdered coat with excellent gloss retention abilities and can be branded with your company colours. In addition to this they can accommodate any standard sized pallet and require virtually no maintenance.
It is vital that businesses take steps to protect their employees in the workplace, which is why we provide a range of different products designed to reduce the risk of accidents. Click here to read more about our pallet gates, industrial handrails and extensive fire protection.
