For almost two decades, Composite Resources has designed, engineered, developed and manufactured custom and stock components and products fabricated from composites for a wide range of industrial applications. One of these “off the shelf” products constructed of composites is the GraviGate™, a safety gate constructed of strong reinforced fiberglass. GraviGate™ safety gates are designed and produced to meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.23a.

GraviGate™ safety gates were developed to help prevent falls at floor openings, stairways, and ladder ways. Constructed and manufactured using corrosion proof hardware and composite tubing, GraviGate™ safety gates are available in both standard and custom sizes. Features of GraviGate™ safety gates include:

  • Self Lubricating
  • Corrosion Resistant – constructed of composite and stainless steel components
  • Self Closing – featuring springless – and silent – return design; no messy lubricants or springs required
  • Safety Yellow in color
  • Maintenance Free
  • Rugged – can be used in harsh and corrosive indoor and outdoor environments
  • Easy Installation
  • Long Lasting
  • Standard Gravi-T® Hinges are thermally and electrically insulated to prevent and guard against burns and electrical shocks

GraviGate™ safety closure systems are available in a wide range of standard sizes, such as (all dimensions are in inches:

18 x 18 21 x 21
24 x 24 27 x 27
30 x 30 33 x 33
36 x 36

All GraviGate™ safety gates are offered in either right-hand or left-hand swing out configurations, and are available with round bar or angle bar adapters. A stainless steel catch stop plate accessory is also available if you would like the gate to swing in one direction only.

Composite Resources has the capability to produce GraviGate™ safety gates in custom sizes to fit your unique size requirements. When determining if a standard or custom GraviGate™ is needed, subtract 2 inches from the opening width – this will give you the gate size required.
