Unbeatable Quality

ErectaStep is a well-known name within the industrial loading solutions industry, and for good reason. Since arriving on the scene over 2 decades ago, the brand has consistently set a higher bar for quality and innovation on a wide range of stair kits suitable for use with multiple industries. Each of ErectaStep’s pre-engineered and pre-manufactured stair kits are built using advanced laser-cutting technology and patent-pending designs in order to ensure superior performance as well as OSHA compliance. In addition, ErectaStep’s new International Building Code (IBC) compliant stair series are manufactured and engineered with heavy gauge steel and designed to stand the test of time.


One of the biggest benefits of choosing products from ErectaStep is the versatility in terms of applications. Access platforms and stairs can be used for many different purposes, but are predominantly depended on to facilitate the safe movement of workers and equipment in areas that would otherwise be unsafe to reach. In manufacturing plants, platforms and stairs are useful for crossing over pipers and conveyors, as well as HVAC systems and packaging lines. When all 5 parts of ErectaStep’s modular framework are combined (Prefabricated Metal Stairs, Metalwork Platforms, Industrial Handrails, Aluminum Stairs/Ladders and a Tower Support) the result is a comprehensive safe access solution that is sturdy, requires no fabrication and quickly bolts together for optimal convenience.

Northern Platforms is also proud to be a Canadian stocking distributor for YellowGate Self Closing Safety Gates for pairing with modular access systems. The YellowGate Safety Gate offers adjustability to safely close off openings between 16″ to 36″ to provide a safe working environment in any gated, barrier, or railing needed area. Variable lengths, adjustable swing directions, mobility, and universal mounting systems are a few key features that make the YellowGate Safety gate superior to other comparable products. YellowGate is the industry leader when it comes to supplying Safety Gates & Swing Gates in a range of industries, which include petrochemical, manufacturing, commercial and Oil & Gas.
