TYPICAL INSTALLATION OF UDG-37
Universal Double Bar Safety Gate

RIGHT HAND SWING INSTALLATION on Angle Iron Guardrail
NOTE: Only one Hinge and one Block are required for the UDG Gate

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS WHEN GATE IS IN A TIGHT AREA

When the Safety Gate is to be mounted in a tight space, such as a corner or a narrow catwalk area, the designer must be aware of both the rise and the kick-out caused by the swing rotation of the self-closing gate. This is depicted in the below drawings.
Please allow for as much room as possible so that the gate can swing fully open. However if space is tight, then try to provide at least a 4″ – 6″ corner so that the gate can swing open as much as 75° – 90°.

Universal Gravity-Closing Safety Gate (UDG) Typical Installation Instruction & Dimensions

HINGE

For industrial safety gate installation, mount the hinge as close as possible to the top of guardrail. Ideally, the top bolt hole should be located 1” down from the top rail, but this may need to be adjusted depending upon the guardrail members. Typical measurements are shown in drawing below.

Position two 9/16” holes on 6 1/4” centers for two 1/2” carriage bolts (4” top and 5” bottom).  Holes should be positioned to allow clearance for tightening 1/2″ nuts.

SUPPORT BLOCK **INSTALLATION NON-OPTIONAL!**

Mount the block so that it is positioned at least 1” BELOW the closed bar. Allow clearance for tightening the 1/2” nut.

Position one 9/16” hole for mounting the block with the 1/2” x 4” carriage bolt.

Block should not interfere with the opening or closing of the industrial swing gate. It is intended to provide vertical support in an emergency. The block should be located at least 5″ below where the top of the hinge is positioned.

REMEMBER  ––  YOU MUST MAKE SURE:

— For adequate safety, ensure that the safety gate is no more than 42” above the platform surface to avoid too large of an opening below the swing gate

— The double bar safety gate is long enough to contact, and extend past, opposite side guardrail posts by 1” or more

— The block is provided to resist vertical deflection. The block SHOULD NOT MAKE CONTACT WITH THE SAFETY GATE OR INTERFERE WITH IT SWINGING CLOSED
