CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF PS INDUSTRIES®

Jim Satrom establishes Production Specialties Corporation in Grand Forks, ND, as a specialty door installation and service provider.

Production Specialities Corporation begins manufacturing its first sliding door for power plants in western North Dakota.

Production Specialities Corporation develops several mainstay products, including industrial swing doors, horizontal sliding roof hatches, industrial air control ventilation louver systems and the first watertight flood protection barrier.

Production Specialties Corporation changes its name to PS DOORS.

PS DOORS develops its first watertight flood protection barrier (manufactured for a lift station), establishing the “Lift-Out Flood Barrier.”

PS DOORS introduces its first “inspector” access hatch for the coal handling industry.

PS DOORS launches its first-ever ladder gate, offering workers protection against falls on elevated platforms, mezzanines and ladderways.

We learn about the incredible power of water firsthand during the Red River’s devastating flood in our hometown of Grand Forks, ND. It was the most severe flood of the river since 1826.

PS DOORS is the first flood barrier manufacturer to receive FM Approvals Certification.

PS DOORS launches its first loading dock safety gate – an OSHA-compliant gate that significantly reduces the danger of falls from docks and bays.

PS DOORS officially changes its name to PS Industries® Incorporated. As the company had evolved from being a manufacturer of high-quality industrial doors to one that also produces safety/fall-protection products and flood barriers, it now had a name that reflects its wide breadth of product offerings.

PS Flood Barriers™ rebranded its Flood Wall as the HydroDefense® Flood Plank™ system, providing quick-deploying flood protection using stackable planks.

PS Industries® introduces a new EdgeSafe® Smart Gate with flexible sizing to fit virtually any situation. This gate provides ground-level protection as well as fall protection for low height guardrail openings or exposed edges.

We buy quite a few safety gates from them and I personally prefer to use these over a competitor’s specified when an alt is acceptable. We find that they fit well and are very universally adaptable without having to account for special adapters on round, angle and flatbar handrails that we commonly provide our customers in the industrial fabrication field.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: The Importance Of The Spring On Your Safety Gate
PROVEN SOLUTIONS: The Importance Of The Spring On Your Safety Gate
For a safety gate to be effective, it needs to prevent an accident. In most cases, that means the gate must be closed when not in use, serving as a barrier against whatever risks are on the other side of it. One of the primary features that sets a safety gate apart from a regular gate in this regard is that a safety gate closes on its own after someone goes through it. This self-closing action happens thanks to heavy-duty springs, and if those springs aren't doing their jobs properly, the safety gate's protection is compromised and its lifespan is diminished.

Even products like cones can be easily overlooked, creating a need for more tangible, more effective protection for workers.
