The Boplan Axes Gate has been developed as fall protection for ladderway openings and platforms. It prevents people to walk directly into the opening and guarantees full safety for people working on platforms. It is a self closing gate and does not operate by means of springs, bearings or electrical parts.
After opening the gate, it will always swing back to a closed position. The design of the hinge forces the gate to go slightly upwards when opening and then falls back to its original position by gravity when released again. The swing direction is determined by the direction of the gate when its pushed away when moving from the ladder onto the platform.
