Fall-protection grating

Fall-protection grating for floor access doors allows workers to safely inspect pumps and monitor underground areas. The system installs on existing doors and features aluminum grating with a safety-yellow powder-coat finish. It includes stainless-steel hardware for corrosion resistance and is equipped with a stainless-steel automatic hold-open device that locks the panel in the open position. Also included is a padlock hasp for added security. The system exceeds fall-protection requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The company provides a field installation kit that includes instructions and all mounting hardware. Installation requires drilling eight holes in the frame for the hinges and the support brackets and drilling two more holes in the cover stiffener for the hold-open latch. A pintle hinge design allows the panel to open to a full 90-deg. position to maximize the area available for access.
