Heavy Vehicle Maintenance Platform
The challenge for accessing vehicles that don’t have flat surfaces on the top—tankers, for example—is being able to stand in the area you need to work on without slipping or sliding off altogether. This system was originally designed for a client who operated a fleet of tanker trucks – they needed to work on hatches and connection points with fall protection during maintenance.
Standard rails or even tall scaffolding was still dangerous, as it left a gap between the top of the tank’s curve and the lower side of the tank. SafeSmart designed and manufactured this platform with telescopic handrails that easily jut out over the obstacle, creating full-surround edge protection for those who step onto the tanker surface.
For challenges like this, SafeSmart Canada can design any platform that helps workers gain access to irregularly-shaped surfaces, to suit any vehicle or trailer. We assess the weight rating required, regulations related to the activity and the environmental conditions in which the unit will be used. And we manufacture from the highest-grade aluminum, for strength and portability.
