Waukesha, WI – Wildeck, Inc. has launched a new pick module impact gate, the Finger Gate. This durable steel gate easily integrates into any facility and provides a strong, protective barrier at elevated work levels, helping facilities achieve their automation goals.
The Finger Gate is commonly used in pick modules/rack systems to help optimize the flow of products, materials or merchandise throughout a facility. The spring mechanism on each “finger” allows the gate to be pushed open by a pallet and to self-close as the pallet is unloaded or clears the gate. Wildeck’s Finger Gates can be freestanding (mounted to deck) or rack-mounted based on the specific application. While the Finger Gate is commonly used for 48” x 40” pallets, custom-sized gates are available.
“We are excited to add the Finger Gate to our already extensive line of guarding products,” said Dave Milner, Wildeck’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The Finger Gate’s durable steel design makes for a cost-effective, long-lasting safety investment.”
Wildeck’s Finger Gates have been tested to run over 20,000 cycles without failure and are designed in accordance with IBC, OSHA and Cal-OSHA regulations. Easily incorporated into newly designed or existing rack systems, Wildeck can also integrate protective railing to cover the area between the fingers on wider rack bays/the walkways between rollers. This top-rated product is the perfect solution for increasing safety and achieving the efficiency that facilities desire from their system.
