Edge Protection for Lift Shafts

Installing Edge Protection for lift shafts in your building is essential to maintain the safety standards of your business and prevent avoidable accidents. Falling while working at heights is the third most common injury sustained at work, so implementing control measures to prevent the possibility is imperative. 

At Safegate, we provide Edge Protection for lift shafts that comply with industry standards, including BS EN 13374: 2013 + A1 2018 and The Work at Height Regulations 2005. 

Our safety gate system can be fitted to all types of surfaces, including concrete, brickwork, timber, steel, and glass, to ensure suitability for any section of your building. Furthermore, are able to cover any structural opening size from an 800mm passenger lift to vehicle lifts over 15 metres to guarantee effective edge protection for any sized lift shaft.

Safegate – Standard

Safegate standard is a light weight edge protection system for lift shafts. It is tested to BS EN 13374:2013 Class A & B. 

Safegate – Solid

Safegate Solid is fitted flush to wall structure, minimising any gaps, making it ideal for when fire and smoke reduction is required.

Safegate – Double

Designed to assist with the loading out into the lift shaft, the Safegate Double has a 1600mm opening, reducing the need to remove the edge protection once installed.

Edge Protection Hire

At Safegate, we offer edge protection hire to clients nationwide to provide constructive safety measures to employees when working at height. We offer three different types of gates designed for various purposes. 

The first is our standard Safegate, a proprietary edge protection system that creates a barrier for lift shafts, riser cupboards, ventilation systems, and electrical areas. Second is our Safegate Solid, fixed flush to the wall to minimise fire and smoke release. Finally, the Safegate Double, designed to assist with loading larger items into your lift shaft. 

Our fitting teams are highly trained in all the installation procedures, but we offer training for self-installation if preferred. We strive to provide affordable and flexible edge protection hire to clients nationwide and aim to impart effortless experiences to our customers.
