Finger gates are easy to install, with only two bolts per "finger" to mount onto an existing rack.  The finger gate has several variations for installation, all necessary hardware is included regardless of the installation. 

The Finger Gate system can be designed around existing layouts and imported directly into your CAD design.  We can also integrate protective railing to cover the area between the "fingers" to accommodate the walkways between rollers.

Both the rack mounted and freestanding Finger Gate systems are equipped with spring loaded hinges, which self-close as pallets and items pass through.  The finger gate springs have been tested to function over 20,000 cycles without fail.
