NOVA offers a Safety Guard attachment for the DG20 that adds a barrier above, between and below the rails of the gate.  The Safety Guard attachments reach 72″ high and extend to 6″ above the floor for overhead and crawl-through protection.  The DG20 with Safety Guard protects elevated equipment, restricts access to dangerous areas and stops personnel or materials from falling off ledges.

The Defender Gate™ 20 has the same compact footprint as the DG10, but this model has a heavy-duty double panel design for added safety.  The upper rail stands 42″ tall and the lower bottom run meets the OSHA 21″ mid-rail requirement.  The DG20 meets and exceeds OSHA standards for fall protection and is ideal for use at loading docks, pits or vats.

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.
