Below, we’ll highlight 3 of the most common benefits for crossover stairs. Read on to learn more!

Access Heights Safely

Safe access at heights to the ability to retrieve products in high places comes with a certain level of risk, which can be easily mitigated through the use of a rolling platform or set of rolling stairs. Having a solid platform and access points allows your team to go about their work safely, without risking the falls or slips that may otherwise occur. ErectaStep products are highly customizable with the option to include additional safety measures like swing gates or adjustable heights as an extra level of protection where necessary.

Functional Crossovers

Certain facilities benefit exponentially by having access equipment that allows them to go up and over the general floor layout for their operations, giving you plenty of space on the ground, as well as better options overall. Crossover platforms and rolling stairs can be used overtop of conveyors in manufacturing plants, as well as out of the way of machinery, ducts, piping, cable trays, utility boxes or other factors that would otherwise pose hindrances. With your safe access over your equipment, you’ll have more floor space and less stress.
