Access Platforms For Safety At Elevation

W.S. Safety supplies and installs truck access platform systems and railcar access work platform systems for safe access. Following an on-site assessment, we assist you in making the correct choice of access platform for your particular application.

As a turnkey provider of fall protection systems and platform access gangway systems, we can design and install numerous options including aerial work platforms. We do not have a bias to one work platform system over another as many manufacturers do. Upon request, we can provide quotes for all of the options available so that you can make an informed decision as to which access platform system best suits your requirements.

The typical options available for railcar fall protection and truck fall protection include rail fall protection system, cable fall protection system, platform and gangway system, as well as a combination of a fall protection and access platform and work platform systems.

We are pleased to offer high quality platform solutions from ErectaStep, including modular platform and catwalk systems, aircraft elevated staircase systems, and PerfectaStep custom platforms.

Custom Access Platforms

 

Fixed access platforms and gangways are a great solution for quickly and safely assisting in railcar access or transport truck access. Systems can be configured with telescopic gangways, tracking gangways, safety cage, self-closing safety gates, canopy, as well as numerous other options. Hose handling arms can also be installed on the fixed access platforms. Our platforms are installed onto poured foundations in the ground.

Platform and Gangway Features:

  • On-board hydraulic pump system and 4 hydraulic leveling jacks.
  • Batteries to power hydraulic pump and charging system for batteries.
  • Full trailer lights for transportation.
  • Telescoping access gangway.
  • Height adjustable access gangway operated by electric screw jack.
  • Flashing light and flood light on top of platform.
  • Aluminum cage to surround crash box of railcar.
  • Video camera system for accurate positioning of platform.
  • Electric brakes.

Mobile Railcar Access Platform

One of our most recent projects was to develop a custom portable railcar access platform for a couple of clients who had similar needs to safely access the top of railcars. We worked with these customers to develop and design a very heavy duty portable railcar access platform that could be towed behind a ¾ ton truck. The two railcar access platforms are basically identical to one another however we also installed high pressure piping on the one trailer so that it could be used as a portable CO2 transfer station where material would be transferred from railcars into transport trucks. The portable railcar access platform can be transferred to site in the shipping position and then can be assembled on site as required.

Mobile Railcar Features:

  • On-board hydraulic pump system and 4 hydraulic leveling jacks.
  • Batteries to power hydraulic pump and charging system for batteries.
  • Full trailer lights for transportation.
  • Telescoping access gangway.
  • Height adjustable access gangway operated by electric screw jack.
  • Flashing light and flood light on top of platform.
  • Aluminum cage to surround crash box of railcar.
  • Video camera system for accurate positioning of platform.
  • Electric brakes.

We have designed and fabricated many different mobile access platform and gangway models for customers so they can access equipment for maintenance or repair. We have developed a height adjustable platform that is a great solution to access many different heights of equipment.

Mobile Access Platform Features:

  • Adjustable mobile access platform height from 6′ to 11′
  • Heavy duty construction is built to last
  • Approx. 850 lbs weight
  • Hand operated crank to adjust height
