SafeRack’s Flat Ramp Telescopic Gangway (FRT)

You have plenty of options to choose from regarding railcar loading equipment. However, SafeRack’s flat ramp access gangway (FRT) is a popular option. The FRT features a slip-resistant walking surface to reduce tripping hazards. With the telescoping extension, the FRT also eliminates gaps on narrow railcars, making loading and unloading more accessible and safer. While you have options to include a safety cage on the FRT, the telescoping top handrails are available on all FRT models without the safety cage. Overall the FRT is built to improve safety while loading railcars without sacrificing quality or durability. Having trouble with railcars being spotted properly? No problem, a tracking gangway will give you the adjustability to track the gangway along the platform to line it up with the railcar opening. Let the team at Northern Platforms showcase the SafeRack Flat Ramp Telescopic Gangway and help you add this fantastic unit to your operations!
