Our gangways come standard with non-skid grip strut walking surfaces. Optional welded stops prevent the bridge from traveling beyond a predetermined position.

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.
