Do you recognise this? Lifting points in logistics, not (correctly) closed because of neglect, hurry or sloppiness in following the safety regulations.
The removable fences, doors or chains are not closed properly, causing dangerous effects.
Then there is the VARIOGATE (also known as a cantilever gate or safety pallet gate): your best choice in good and safe shielding for lifting points to storeys. Ideal to use on mezzanine floors.
Safety Pallet Gate System Made To Size
VARIOGATE systems made to size, can also be delivered. Next to our standard assortment of safety-pallet-gates we are able to design systems for extra wide loads, high or deep loads in almost every industrial situation or logistic surroundings.
Haagh Protection has been able to offer a good price for all versions and variants of its VARIOGATE® range for many years.
With these VARIOGATE safety pallet gate systems Haagh Protection is not necessarily the cheapest supplier on the market. The aim is to be the best quality provider in the market when it comes to safety, strength and durability.
A goal in which they constantly try to improve themselves. A good example is the recent completion of the TÜV inspection programme for the VARIOGATE®-26.
The design makes sure that this device can withstand very large forces. These forces are thoroughly checked with extensive strength calculations. In these calculations, the strength of all connections and tubes in various sizes was calculated. Sometimes some technical improvements are desirable, which were immediately implemented in the final design of the product. Paperwork (of the strength calculation) is patient and theory is sometimes different from practice.
The results of the strength calculation are therefore assessed on value with a physical, destructive investigation by means of a glass bead test:
An impact test is performed on the apparatus by means of a bag filled with glass beads. In total, the bag weighs 25 kg. Next, the bag is suspended in such a way that it has a drop height of 1 metre. The bag is directed towards the potentially weakest part of the device, the centre of the front of the device.
The device may deform slightly during the test, however, all connections must come out of the test whole and undamaged! The test is carried out under the supervision of an auditor from TÜV-Nord. After approval and an additional check of the strength calculation on the apparatus, the auditor will issue the official TÜV testcertificate at product level.
The video of the test shows that the VARIOGATE® passes this test easily:
With the purchase of a VARIOGATE®, the customer can rest assured that he is acquiring a product of the highest quality level, which is guaranteed to do what it’s meant to do: provide safety for your employees.
With the purchase of a VARIOGATE®, companies get a product with the best price/quality ratio available on the European market.
Haagh Protection has marketed the Variogate-180 for several years.
A Variogate is used to secure access points in higher levels. The Variogate-180 is a safety pallet gate where two sets of barriers are linked together. This is done in a way that moving one set of barriers automatically causes the other set to move in the opposite direction. This creates a safe zone through which goods can be transported. The risk of falling down is reduced to zero in that way.
A disadvantage of such a device is that a larger width of the device also requires a larger available height! After all, the greater width also rotates upwards during movement.
By means of a recent innovative solution, we now offer devices of which the barrier automatically retracts partially during the upward movement. This requires less space in height. During the reverse movement, the arm fully extends so that the maximum width is utilised.
Another disadvantage that arises with large widths is the force required for operation. This is also an undesirable consequence of ever-increasing dimensions.
However, Haagh Protection has now made an important improvement in this respect: by integrating gas springs, the operation of the gate has been improved to such an extent that it is now lighter and technically 100 % sound.
It is also possible to deliver custom made solutions in difficult situations, for example when doors are turning inwards, like in the pictures:

In the Netherlands last year, 93,000 work-related accidents occurred that were so severe that employees were unable to work for at least four days.
Many incidents are the result of tripping, slipping, incorrect movement or heavy lifting. Largely this can be prevented with the right measures.
Almost half of the accidents took place in healthcare, industry and trade with most in logistics and production. In addition to the anti-slip products sold by Haagh Protection, we have been offering our Variogate systems for many years to improve safe working at heights.
We have made an interesting comparison between Variogates and safety pallet gates of the competition, which we encounter sometimes as a so-called cheap alternative.

The Haagh Protection team is warming up to spend extra time with family and friends, during the upcoming school holidays.
However, we will remain open during the holidays. Haagh Protection is open daily between office hours (08.30- 17.00) and closed in the weekends.
Due to the closure of the factory and the fact that our offices work with less staff during this period, the response time for orders and quotations may take a little longer than normal. Shipments are scheduled normally.
Every year, even during this special times, it is a wonderful experience to contribute to the realization of projects and installations to help people work in a safer environment. We would love to hear from you.
Please contact us via email@example.com or by phone: 031 (0)161-226559, if you have any questions.

New in the Haagh Protection assortment: Safety netting for Variogate systems.
Safety netting can protect both goods from damage due to falling down a higher level and preventing injuries on pedestrians walking on the lower level. This can occor when using one of our Variogates in combination with small goods to be loaded on a pallet. The safety net prevents goods from falling of the mezzanine.
Available in 4 sizes of:
1400 mm * 1000 mm (1.600 mm wide apparatus)
1800 mm * 1000 mm (2.000 mm wide apparatus)
2200 mm * 1000 mm (2.400 mm wide apparatus)
2800 mm * 1000 mm (3.000 mm wide apparatus)
Obviously made to size items are available as well. More information about our Variogate systems can be found on www.variogate.com
Recently Haagh Protection delivered several VARIOGATE 30HI systems. This for use in a dooropening in a warehouse in Belgium. These made- to-size apparatus were adjusted to our customers demands.
The new type of guillotine-device VARIOGATE® 30HI with a retractable backfence provides the optimal solution for set-up conditions at a pallet location with a highly restrickted or limited space at the back of the fencing. This problem occurs when there is insufficient space for a normal, pivoting safety pallet gate or when a lateral displacement of the load occurs.
Normally suitable for loads of 1.600 mm high and 1.200 mm deep.
With the recent improvements we made a better stability and used stronger materials for better performance. We can also provide tailor-made solutions with this type of equipment. In this case it concerns a version of the Vario 30HI with a retractable backfence. In this way we can exploite extra space at the lifting point. Based on the concept of the guillotine, Haagh Protection also realizes solutions in areas with limited height and depth. Customization is perfectly possible!
VARIOGATE® safety palletgates act as a lock that either pivots over or moves around goods transported. This protects people in the vicinity of safety gates on different floors from being injured. The safety gate forms a barrier between the staff members on one floor, and the load on a forklift truck or lifting mechanism on a lower floor.
The safety gate also prevents goods from falling down and therefore helps to prevent passers-by from getting injured and goods on lower floors from being damaged. Using a safety gate creates ideal safety conditions for pallet lifting points on entresols and mezzanine floors. A safety gate system delivered by Haagh Protection ensures that lifting points are never unintentionally left open again!
The available space, dimensions of the loads and method of transportation are of course unique for every location. This is why various standard and custom solutions are available for virtually every situation. The VARIOGATE 26 is suitable for a maximum load / pallet height of 2.600mm and a maximum load / pallet depth of 1.500 mm.
