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.

As of recently, we can offer you fixed standard tent shelters of robust industrial quality for shielding, bridging or compartmentalising purposes.
This tent is suitable for welding and grinding work and is available from stock in various widths and depths. Extremely suitable for outdoor work when protection from sun, rain, wind or cold is required. But also for temporary storage, for example!
Our new range of Heavy Duty marquees distinguishes itself primarily by being a modular system that is easy to build, expand and combine.
More information can be found on our website www.industriegordijn.nl or via email@example.com.
Some important advantages:
– Strong / solid modular frames
– Fire resistant modular covers
– Wind resistant due to supplied storm straps
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 031 (0)161-226559, if you have any questions.
A growing number of companies use fibreglass as the foundation, due mainly to the low cost.
Although resistant to corrosion, these products do not normally last long, particularly with stair nosings where they tend to break along the nosing’s leading edge. The leading edge of these FRP products is an intrinsic weak point. Once damaged, the nosing will need to be replaced, as they tend to become loose and an accident is imminent.
You take substantial risks if you decide to purchase cheap, low quality anti-slip equipment, including:
Ongoing replacement costs.
Creation of unintended secondary hazards.
Ongoing injuries between replacement.
Downtime during replacements.
Being labelled incompetent & losing face.
Vigil Antislip -Class One- Safety Products are manufactured to the highest standards using the most durable materials available. Each product comes with a written Ten Year Replacement warranty. So your purchase is risk-free and will continue to provide the highest quality slip resistance. Many times longer than provided by every other anti-slip supplier.
Another disadvantage of GRP antislip is that to achieve sufficient structural stability. These nosings are often very thick, creating a possible trip hazard by catching the heel while descending the stairway or walking along a walkway. Manufacturers overcome this problem by manufacturing the stair nosings with a depth close to that of the step underneath. This unnecessarily inflates the cost. And it is also then often necessary to have the stair nosings in two colours. Safety yellow at the front of the nosing and black at the back.
It is also a property of these products that they bow up in the centre when fastened along the edges, creating a potential trip hazard. Manufacturers normally purchase the angled foundation from a fibreglass extrusion company. In most cases this is manufactured using polyester resins. These are not resistant to petroleum products. To counter this, they apply their antislip surface using a chemical resistant epoxy resin system. This means that the surface only is resistant to petroleum products. It creates another issue because polyester resins and epoxy resins are not compatible. Delamination may occur over time. From our experience, every manufacturer of FRP products uses quartz or fused alumina as aggregate. Quartz (hardness: 820 kg/ mm2) and fused alumina (hardness: 1800kg / mm2) are comparatively soft when compared to silicone carbide. This is used in Vigil antislip (hardness: 2480 kg / mm2). FRP antislip will wear very quickly and the aggregate will often pull out of the resin system which partly encapsulates the grains.
A number of competitive products we have tested show that most of them do not have long term resistance to solvents present in petroleum products. For the complete test results and more information please contact us via email@example.com or tel. +31-(0)161-226559
