Access Gangways

Our OSHA compliant Access Gangways for trucks and railcars provide safe access from the loading rack, platform or dock to an elevated surface. Our gangways can be retrofitted to existing platforms and can be manufactured from carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel and fiberglass.

The gangway is designed for applications where the working range is within 15° above or below the platform height.
