Truck and Railcar Loading & Unloading Platforms
Truck and railcar loading and unloading platforms are an integral part of your process whether it be unloading raw materials or loading finished products. Doing it safely is paramount with operators working on the top of railcars and trucks where they can be exposed to falls greater than six feet. S&S Technical custom designs platforms for single or multiple hatch trucks, one or multiple rail cars, equipping the platforms with access gangways for safe access to the tops of the trucks and railcars with safety cages for fall protection.
Various gangway options for truck and railcar access including self-leveling stairs, flat ramp and telescoping extension gangways, are utilized based on the application, with options for custom designed safety cages to fit your unique needs. Track mounted gangways are also provided where the need to access multiple truck hatches is required or for rail car misspotting for coupled railcar applications. Track mounted gangways can also be provided where the need to access multiple hatches is required. Track mounted gangways eliminate the need to re-spot your truck or railcar saving valuable time.
Truck and railcar loading platforms can be supplied with canopies to protect your product and personnel from the elements. Loading platforms can be provided in hot dipped galvanized steel or painted finishes per your sites paint specifications. Truck and railcar loading platforms are designed per OSHA standards as we interpret them with local codes, and plant standards taken into consideration.
