New High-Cycle Gas Bottle Rack Railgates

Tommy Gate is pleased to announce the availability of new, High-Cycle, Gas Bottle Rack Railgate models.

New High-Cycle Gas Bottle Rack Railgates have been specifically designed to provide transporters of gas and propane cylinders with a liftgate solution that supports higher lifting capacities, frequent daily cycling, and dock loading compatibility.

These new railgate models feature "High-Cycle" durability (resulting from the unique steel-roller and leaf-chain drive system), platform "drop away" functionality for dock loading/unloading, and a folding retention fence to secure gas and propane cylinders.

Liftgate Details:
  • Vehicle Applications   Flatbed, Stake, and Van Bodies
  • Body Widths   96" & 102" Wide Bodies
  • Lifting Capacities   2500 & 3000 lbs.
  • Platform Style   Treadplate Steel w/ Retention Fence
  • High-Cycle Design   Steel Roller & Leaf Chain Drive System
  • Numerous Standard Features   Including Safety Trip Bar, Self-Close arm, Recessed lights, Steel rollers, and "Drop-away" platform for dock-loading

High-Cycle GBR Liftgate Dimensions

Since they utilize the same design components as Bi-Fold Railgate models, HC GBR liftgates are chock full of standard features, including platform auto open/close, low-profile control (with timed shut-off), and safety-trip bar. The Tommy Gate Safety Trip Bar comes standard on all Railgate models and disengages the lift when an object is detected between the rising liftgate platform and the liftgate frame.

Tommy Gate is excited to introduce this new lift to the truck equipment industry and will be eager to answer any questions you have. Feel free to contact your territory manager or customer service at 1-800-LIFTGATE.

Tommy Gate is always working to design, build, and improve upon the finest liftgates in the world.
