Model SB-RT Telescoping Ramp Gangways with extended reach access protect operators working on top of tank trucks or rail cars in a variety of industries. The gangways, which are ideal for applications where the required range is within 15 degrees above or below the working platform height, feature adjustable dual-tension springs in both box-channel side panels. Folding handrails and telescoping midrails are made of heavy wall tubing and mounted on both sides as standard equipment.
The gangways also feature heavy-duty 1/2-inch bumpers, and a grip-strut walking surface for better traction. The cost-effective gangways feature rugged materials of construction, including steel, aluminum and fiberglass, to withstand any extreme environments. Aluminum gangways feature stronger galvanized back box sections and back uprights for maximum stability. Meanwhile, custom designed safety cages provide the perfect security for any application. Operators can choose from a variety of mounting options, including slide-track mounting, pivot mounting and blush-mount brackets. Optional features include manual or electrically operated hydraulic lift packages for larger units, side-mount brackets, as well as welded stops or safety chains that prevent from traveling beyond a predetermined position. Units can be custom designed for a specific application, while custom designed safety cages are available as well.
