Along the goals of Northern Platforms Ltd. are to supply high quality equipment and to ensure the safe completion of work projects. In order to reach our goals we rely on the proven names in the industry to supply our equipment such as gangways , swivel joints, load arm, hiltap fittings and . The portable fall protection systems add on to the already secure and easy to operate equipment.
The safety begins with the portable fall protection systems a big part of which are the gangways and safety cages. The safety cages that Northern Platforms Ltd. offers are modified to the rails so that they can fit any rail car. Because the rail car is now secure with the safety cages, the work time is cut, and the completion of projects is possible within shorter period. The safety cages are part of the portable fall protection systems, because they are designed to be used in different crash box configurations. With the use of rail car safety cages the incidents drastically decrease, therefore contributing to the overall decrease of work related incidents and to the increased efficiency of project completion. Besides the safety provided with the safety cages, the portable fall protection systems include well-designed gangways that also contribute to the secure work environment. With accordance to the OSHA requirements, the gangways are of adequate strength and applied only in situations where the gangways are the appropriate choice. Much like the safety cages, our gangways have various designs that make possible the fit to a variety of heights. Furthermore, the gangways are available in multiple widths and materials in order to best serve their purpose. Some of the features of our gangways include free standing load capacity; applicability in multitude of environments; and they are retrofitted to existing structures. The gangways themselves have a protection system on the bottom in order to protect the vehicle. The safety cages and the gangways are part of the portable fall protection systems because they are applicable and modifiable to a variety of vehicles and rails.
The portable fall protection systems also include swivel joints, load arm and hiltap fittings. The load arm is important on the worksite because it defines the range of the work space. The load arm that we offer can be found in a variety of materials, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. The choice of a load arm increases when we offer the flanged, threaded or all-welded construction of the load arm. The designs and materials that the load arm comes in make for a swift and easy mode of operation on any rail or truck. Furthermore, as most of our equipment, the load arm is modifiable in order to fit tight-fill or closed system loading. With much the same goal in mind, the swivel joints and the hiltap fittings are designed to make the operations easy and safe. The swivel joints have a variety of standard seals, end connections and materials. The wide range of possible swivel joints ensures high applicability of the swivel joints to any project. For more specific tasks, the swivel joints can be modified such that they represent a specific function, such as assistance in the transportation of hazardous materials. Much like the swivel joints, the hiltap fittings are designed to further the range of application of the load arm and are made to ensure safety. The hiltap fittings that Northern Platforms Ltd. uses are from the series of the most reliable manufacturers of hiltap fittings. The safety of the hiltap fittings in guaranteed due to the leak-proof technology employed in the design. The hiltap fittings can be used on high and low temperatures and pressure, making it highly applicable across different operations. And as our other equipment, the hiltap fittings can be reused for different pipes, hoses and tubes.
