NOVA offers the DGXL with Safety Guard attachments for enhanced protection.  With a single-rail DGXL, the Safety Guard adds a barrier below the rail that extends to 6″ above the floor to stop personnel or materials from falling off ledges.  Safety Guards for the double-rail DGXL add barriers above, below and in between the rails that reach 72″ high and extend to 6″ above the floor for overhead and crawl-through protection.

The NOVA Defender Gate™ XL is available in larger sizes up to 16 feet wide and can have a single safety rail like the DG10 or double rails like the DG20.  Oversized hinges, bollards and trusses support the added weight of the elongated design and a third top handle is included to ensure ease of operation.  The DGXL provides a larger coverage area for increasing in-plant safety and security or protecting loading docks and other elevated 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.
