Features and Benefits

  • Proudly USA Made
  • Powder coated yellow at 42″ in height
  • Locking gate mechanism for Safety
  • Superior Personnel Protection
  • Zero Maintenance Required
  • Effortless closing/opening

We offer a Safety Guard attachment that adds a barrier below the rail of the gate that extends to 6″ above the floor for crawl-through protection.  The DG10 with Safety Guard stops personnel and materials from entering restricted areas or falling off ledges if employees were to leave the gate open.  When paired with the Safety Guard attachments, the DG10 exceeds OSHA standards for fall protection and can be installed at loading docks or other raised surfaces.

Selecting the Right Safety Gate

Barron Equipment offers a variety of sizes of the Defender Gate. The Defender Gate 20 has a similar footprint to the 10, but has a heavy duty double panel design, which increases safety. The XL Defender Gate can go up to 16 feet wide, allowing for a wider range of safety. All three gates offer great features and benefits and selecting the right safety gate would really depend on the application, the size of the opening, type of traffic passing through and the level of security required.


The defender gate needs to be properly installed around loading docks to meet proper safety standards.
