Home Product News VR Access Solutions sets safety standard in loading bay gates

VR Access Solutions has teamed up with the Scaffolding Association to develop a testing process that has meant they can deliver loading bay gates that will raise safety standards within the industry.

The process allowed VR Access Solutions to rigorously review and enhance its existing product range and the resulting redesigned gate now far exceeds any existing industry standards. VR employed a chartered engineer and a UKAS accredited test house, to further help in the development of the product and the relevant testing process.

The result is the new VR Access Solutions loading bay gates, which have been designed to comply with the requirements of BS EN 12811-1-2003 and BS EN 13374:2013.Their unique design allows the safe and easy retrieval of materials in the loading area, without the risk of working near an exposed edge and falling from height.

The loading bay gates are also self-counterbalanced with a smooth one-man operation and are the first to include gate locks to prevent the inadvertent opening of the gate in the open and closed position.

To reduce manual handling and work at height concerns, the gate can be pre-assembled at floor level and lifted into position by mechanical means, and the gates are designed to fit any loading bay width ranging from 2.5m to 3.7m wide.
