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.
Fall Protection Challenge
You may have an access gangway that may not meet current fall protection standards or be inadequate in terms of function or just worn down and ready for replacement. Instead of replacing your access platform and gangway you prefer to just upgrade the later.
Fall Protection Solution
CAI provides OSHA compliant access gangways that can be retrofitted to your current truck and railcar access platform. Regardless if you want a gangway with better reach, safety features or durability, we can help. Just provide us with information on your current platform and gangway and tell us what improvements you want to make and let us go to work for you. We can provide custom access gangways in a range of sizes, construction and styles to meet the most demanding tanker car and truck loading needs.
Features & Benefits
Maneuvering the access gangway is performed manually. Simple, compact tension spring balances make all movements easy. A slight push or pull positions the gangway for safe access. Each unit is equipped with a locking mechanism for storage in the vertical position.
EASY TO INSTALL
Tubular handrails with midrails on each side of the stair and optional safety cage meet the criteria for a fall prevention system.
Axles have self-aligning, permanently lubed bearings for years of lasting service. Tension springs are enclosed in the side panels to prevent pinch points and corrosion to the springs.
A variety of finishes is available: standard safety yellow enamel, hot dipped galvanized, uncoated or anodizing for aluminum models. We also offer construction of the access gangways in aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel and fiber glass. A wide selection of access gangways is available including folding, extension and self-leveling stairs.
