Custom Work Platforms
Custom Work Platforms
When your project requires a custom application, rely on Fabrication Authorities International to personalize an exclusive product tailored around your needs. No project is too large or too small. Any size job is done efficiently by our skilled workforce. We have designed custom ladders, custom platforms, and custom access solutions in accordance with OSHA and ANSI standards in a timely manner for our customers.
***Please be aware that all prices do NOT include freight. We have had to disable our online checkout feature because most of our products are too large to automatically calculate the freight and need to be run manually. Please contact us via phone at 877-324-9990 or email us at email@example.com with your ship to zip code for a complete quote including your freight cost.
Custom Work Platforms
At Fabrication Authorities International, we realize the ergonomic needs of a diverse workforce. We have the engineering expertise and manufacturing capability to provide your custom access solution. Whether you need to have an existing product altered or upgraded, or a completely new product engineered, fabricated, and delivered, we have the experience to get the job done.
Our expert designers will ensure that your special needs are met in the safest, most efficient manner, often combining multiple features such as: height adjustment, cantilevers, access platforms, tread options, and caster upgrades in industrial projects with complex interfaces.
We utilize a team of highly skilled and experienced engineers to develop your access solution using a proven consultative approach aimed at successfully addressing safety, productivity, ergonomics, and OSHA compliance, all of which are customized to the specific application and environment.
Components of a Custom Work Platform:
|•Height & Clearance
HEIGHT & CLEARANCE:
•We can build your platform to any height, clearance, or under-clearance!
• We offer a variety of tread options to suit your needs:
|Perforated||Moderate slip resistance; this design is used extensively in indoor retail and storeroom applications. This tread may be used to create 18", 24", 30", 36", 48", and 60" tread widths.|
| Grip Strut /
|The most aggressive tread. This design allows dirt and debris to fall through the tread, perfect for outdoor and work boot applications, not recommended for kneeling on. May be manufactured in any width up to 12'.|
|Expanded||Flat, non-skid tread, generally for moist or outdoor applications. The open grating allows debris to fall through, perfect for warehouse and industrial applications.|
|Abrasive Mat||Ideal in areas with less dirt. Non-slip footing for safe climbing, making it the best choice for many office/retail environments.|
|Grip Tape||This adhesive tape has a hard grit surface. Recommended for indoor and dry environments and perfect for offices and users with dress shoes. May be used for 18", 24", 36", or 48" wide tread.|
|Ribbed aluminum||This slip-resistant tread can be used in moist environments, marine docks, industrial applications, or on graded or uneven platforms. Non-metallic options.|
|Diamond plate||Diamond plate was the first non-skid surface ever created in the industry. It reduces slipping; but is not recommended for oily or wet conditions. Tread may be cut to any size up to 8' wide.|
• We offer several material types for your convenience:
|Steel||Rugged and economical. We use carbon steel on most of our products, rugged enough to withstand the test of time. Most commonly coated with enamel paint or powder coat.|
|Aluminum||Paint free, non-magnetic, and non-sparking. Endures frequent washing. Non-corrosive, very lightweight, yet rigid material. Resilient to weather and moisture, does not require any finish or coating.|
|Stainless Steel||Rugged, paint free. Endures frequent washing, non-corrosive. As strong as steel plus the most anti-corrosive properties available. Requires no added finish, may be bead blasted or electro-polished..|
|Composite||Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) Composite material. Non-magnetic, non-sparking, and temperature resistant. Benefits include: corrosion resistance, slip resistance, impact resistance, light weight, superior ergonomics, and low maintenance life cycle.|
•Choose from any of our finishes.
|Enamel (Standard)||All of our steel products have a professionally sprayed enamel finish. Our standard colors are gray or yellow, but for a surcharge we can spray any color specified.|
|Galvanized Steel||Anti-corrosion coating. Cleaned, unpainted products are dipped several times, providing efficient metal protection.|
|Mill Finish||Our aluminum products have a mill finish, can be semi-bright in appearance and somewhat shiny.|
|Powder Coat||Environmentally friendly coating solution offering superior performance for applications which require maximum abrasion resistance and hardness.|
|Electro Polished||A modern process in which the material is immersed in an electrolyte and subjected to a direct electrical current. Benefits include: better physical appearance (brilliant luster and reflectivity), enhanced mechanical properties (less friction and surface drag), better corrosion protection (reduces product contamination and ability of things to stick to the coating due to the microscopic smoothness), and ease of cleaning.|
•We offer a variety of locking mechanisms to enhance worker safety through product immobility when needed.
|Locking casters||Our products may have individually locking casters, swivel, rigid, or both.|
|Spring loaded casters||Retract under the users weight to secure the platform to the floor. Function particularly well on shorter platforms (5 steps and below) and offer maximum maneuverability.|
|Standard lockstep||Ideal for applications over 5 steps. Platform locks in place when the trip bar is activated on the bottom step. Pedals under the bottom step release the lockstep and allow the ladder to roll.|
|Weight actuated lockstep||This is the premium locking mechanism. The lockstep automatically activates when 70 lbs of weight is applied to the stair section.|
|Tilt & Roll||Some of our designs are lightweight and can be tilted on their wheels for portability. This design uses two wheels on one end and pegs on the other for immobility.|
•We can manufacture your custom work platform in any of the styles below, or a combination thereof.
|Rolling||Work platforms can be designed to be mobile to perform in a variety of environments. See caster options.|
|Cantilever||Cantilevered platform ladders can provide extended reach by means of a longer platform at the top of the ladder. Available with and without the counter-weight, with the over-hang straight off the back or off to the sides, and with a fold-down platform for easy storage. We offer a supported cantilever rolling ladder model, also known as a U Frame ladder that uses an extended frame at the base of the ladder to support the added weight of the overhang platform.|
|Crossover||Crossover platforms may be designed in a variety of sizes to clear obstacles of various heights and lengths.|
|Folding||Folding platform ladders provide structural stability and are designed to perform in the toughest industrial situations, yet fold into a compact package for easy storage and convenient transport.|
|Retractable||Retractable ladders are designed to be rugged enough for every day use, but fold up or in when they are not needed.|
|Fixed||Fixed platforms are self-supporting, non-adjustable in length and permanently mounted to a structure.|
•We offer a 30” to a 36” handrail, a 42” handrail with a 21” mid-rail and a 4” toe-board (Cal/Fed OSHA). Other options are standard chain rails, heavy duty chain rails, or rope rails. Any custom height available upon request.
•Partially welded (removable handrails)
•Partially knocked down
•Modular w cotter pin assembly
•We offer any size caster from 2” to 16” as standard options, manufactured from almost any type of material available (ie. Steel rims, foam tires, phenolic, pneumatic, semi-pneumatic) and anything else across the industry may be accessed to cover your needs.
•Foam or rubber bumpers for product or material protection. Nearly limitless options available upon request.
•Power Options (AC,DC, Solar panel)
•Larger platform length at the top of the ladder for greater working area
