Many people ask "Do I need a ladder gate?"

  • Do you climb up your ladder and step off onto a platform?
  • Can walk straight down your stairs without any turns on the top landing?
  • Do you have a roof hatch opening that someone can fall through if left open?
  • Do you have heavy forklift traffic and need to alert your employees to it?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions the answer is most likely yes, you need a safety gate to meet OSHA standards.


Our ladder safety gates are available in safety yellow powder coat, galvanized, aluminum and stainless steel. Each gate is universal, accommodating a left or right hand installation. This ensures your safety gate will fit regardless the configuration. Installation is a breeze, and the ladder safety gate comes fully assembled with U-bolts for standard installation.

The swing gate arm is fabricated to provide the greatest opening coverage. Top and bottom rails are spaced to match the standard rail dimensions required by OSHA. Our MLG gates fit various railing types up to 2" O.D. or flat surface mounting. Each ladder gate uses two stainless steel torsion springs for increased durability.

Note: If your ladder safety gate is not mounting to a round or square railing up to 2" o.d. - as is the case when mounting to flat stock, angle, or wall mounting - please let us know so we can properly size your gate.

These gates can be used on ladders and stairs, across busy aisle-ways as a pedestrian traffic control gate, on scaffolding, mezzanines, pits and in many other places. The MLG Ladder Safety Gates are just that versatile.  We use these gates with our HSF roof hatch railings to prevent falls into unsecured hatch openings. Installation is a quick and easy and the safety gate has universal parts for easily reusing them in different locations.

Smaller and larger sizes may be available upon request. Please contact our sales staff using the form on this page, or by calling 330-650-5561.
