Fixed Platform and Gangway

In contrast to our mobile access platform solutions, our fixed platforms are installed onto poured concrete foundations. Our fixed platform and gangways offer features such as an on-board hydraulic pump systems and four hydraulic leveling jacks. These systems can also include batteries and charging systems to power the hydraulic pump; full trailer lights together with flashing light and flood light on top of the platform help with transportation and accuracy; telescoping and height adjustable access gangways operated by an electric screw jack and electric brakes make for smooth transitions; video camera systems for accurate positioning of the platform along with an aluminum cage that surrounds the crash box of the railcard; and hose handling arms.

These systems can be configured with telescopic gangways, tracking gangways, safety cage, self-closing safety gates, canopy, as well as numerous other options, providing your workers the fall protection safety they require. We work closely with you to configure the systems to meet your exact project requirements.

Here at W.S. Safety Technologies, we specialize in fall protection systems and we look forward to working with you in creating the best fixed platform or gangway for your company’s unique safety needs.
