KC Supply since 1988 has provided a wide range of safety supplies and bulk material conveying equipment for the grain industry. In May, the company introduced an improved Edgehalt® ladder safety gate featuring Slam-Proof™ technology, a unique damping system designed to improve operator safety while the gate is closing.
According to Sales Manager Dan Howe, “The original Edgehalt gates only had 3 inches of adjustment and were available in 11 sizes. The new version has four different gates ranging from 15 inches to 50 inches, allowing for 10 inches of adjustment.
“Reducing the number of available sizes greatly simplifies ordering,” says Howe, “and they have Slam-Proof technology with adjustable flange closing speeds to improve operator safety.”Reduce Preventable Deaths
“Falls are the leading cause of death in construction,” he adds. “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2020 there were 351 fatal falls to a lower level out of 1,008 construction fatalities. These deaths are preventable.”
• Slam-Proof technology closes the gate in a quiet, controlled manner.
• Springs are guaranteed for the life of the gate.
• Self-closing gates are always in place to protect employees from dangerous falls.
• Unique gate design reduces box size and shipping costs by an average of $8-$18 per gate.
