A fully adjustable range of self-closing safety gates for use in rooftop or industrial environments. Safety gates are ideal for protecting any openings, ladder/stair access points, roof hatches, walkways, industrial machinery and other restricted areas, where regular access for maintenance and inspection is required. Ourgates are spring loadedso can automatically close behind the user.
Spring loaded safety gates are considered the preferred solution to chains, bars or sliding tubes when protecting these areas as they automatically close behind a person, overcoming the problem of human error. The safety gate can be “retro-fitted” to existing fixed structures where opening protection is required.
KEE GATE Options
Kee Safety’s self-closing safety gates have been designed to be fully adjustable and can accommodate opening up to 1m for the single gate and 1.8m for the double gate.
The single gate is available 1m wide and it can be easily cut to size on site.
The double gate is available 1.8m wide and it can be easily cut to size on site.
Both single and double safety gates are available in galvanised steel finish or yellow powder coated.
KEE GATE product range also includes pallet width gates which allow safe working for employees on a mezzanine or raised working surface.
Single Width Gates
The single self closing safety gate is supplied 1 metre wide and is fully adjustable; height and width can be cut to size on-site. Connecting the gate to the supporting structure is simple - two U-Bolts are used to attach the gate to a variety of uprights or flat surfaces from 33.7 to 48.3mm diameter.
Our safety gate mounts easily to existing structures such as Kee Klamp galvanised handrail system and KeeGuard roof edge protection system.
Double Width Gates
Double self closing safety gates are supplied for larger openings greater than 1m wide. The maximum width for double gates is 1.8m. The double gate is compliant to EN 14122 requirements and does not require any locking mechanism to be used by the operator.
Double safety gates are both self-closing and will form a complaint barrier when a person has passed through the gate. This is achieved by strengthening the attachment and increasing the number of fixings when compare to the single gate option.
The double self-closing safety gate has undergone the same testing regime as the single gate and is available in both galvanised and powder coated options.
Full Height Gates
KEE GATE Full Height Self Closing Safety Gate has been designed to comply with BS 4211: Specification for Permanently Fixed Ladders, which requires gates on ladders to offer the same level of protection as EN 14122 compliant guardrail. Standing at 1100mm tall and featuring an aluminium toe board, it provides additional protection to those working at any level.The gate is fully adjustable and can accommodate openings up to 1m.
Testing & Certification
Kee Safety’s self-closing safety gates have been extensively tested by independent bodies, to make sure that our products are reliable and comply with international standards. The safety gates are CE accredited to the requirements of EN 1090 and comply with Work at Height Regulations, European Union Directives, EN14122-3:2016 and test requirements of EN13374.
The safety gates passed salt spray testing to ASTM B117 - 11 - 55 Neutral solution over 200 hours to assess performance of coating to resist corrosion. The gates life cycle was tested to BS 6375-2:2009 Clause 6.5 – Opening and closing of Gate through 90 degrees 50,000 cycles giving. All test reports are available upon request.

ArcelorMittal relies on Fall Protection Solution from Kee Safety
KEEGUARD free standing roof edge protection and KEE GATE self-closing safety gates have been installed at ArcelorMittal Auto Processing Deutschland GmbH plant in Germany. ArcelorMittal is a multinational steel manufacturing corporation and the world's largest steel producer.
ArcelorMittal wanted to secure a roof with a Collective Fall Protection Solution, to provide safe access for a team maintaining skylights. The roof is access by workers maintaining skylights only. The maintenance team uses a special platform to secure themselves when maintaining rooflights, so no skylight protection was required. The team builds a platform, attach the PPE and moves it from skylight to skylight.
930m of the KEEGUARD system and 6 self-closing gates were installed, the installation took 4 days.
If a property is one where regular access to the roof is a necessity, collective fall protection systems such as roof top guardrails, should be installed. Collective measures are preferred as they prevent several people from falling at the same time and do not require specific user knowledge, which means training and supervision is not essential.
1. Stop. 2. Assess your surroundings. 3. Action (opening) required before continuing.
