Versatile Operations Need Versatile Industrial Work Platforms–ErectaStep Can Help! 

Recently, Northern Platforms assisted a tank farm in designing custom industrial work platforms and a secondary containment system to keep their employees safe and secure when accessing the tanks. This is just one example of how ErectaStep modular work platforms’ versatility can ensure the safety and accessibility of an operations’ daily tasks. However, ErectaStep platforms can be used beyond tank farms and spill containment access.

Next, we will tell you more about these industrial work platforms and their versatility. Keep reading to find out more! 

Industrial Work Platforms: Making Access and Safety #1

When it comes to design and innovation in industrial work platforms, ErectaStep is truly the leader. Their pre-engineered, pre-manufactured industrial work platforms offer superior quality, durability, and safety, making them an excellent option for petrochemical, manufacturing, and commercial industries where access and safety cannot be compromised. Manufactured using advanced laser-cutting technology, patent-pending designs, and lightweight aluminum, ErectaStep industrial work platforms outperform alternative options in all categories. 

At Northern Platforms, we are a trusted distributor of ErectaStep products. Whether you need OHSA/OH&S-compliant industrial work platforms or IBC-compliant stairs, we have you covered! 

The Easiest Installation Process

One of the many reasons ErectaStep’s industrial work platforms are so popular is that they feature modular, lightweight aluminum components that are easy to install, reconfigure and disassemble. 

Installation for these industrial work platforms only takes a few hours and requires little more than a wrench. That means you don’t need to shut down your production line, obtain hot permits, or utilize special tools or welding. Instead, these industrial work platforms easily bolt together.

However, if you require assistance installing your ErectaStep industrial work platforms because you cannot sacrifice the manpower or want to ensure a perfect installation process, Northern Platforms is here to help! With our turnkey installation services, our team can guarantee that your work platform is installed safely and in a timely manner.

Customizable for Various Industries! 

Because ErectaStep industrial work platforms are versatile and easily reconfigurable, they have dominated the market. Using five key components (aluminum steps, work platforms, industrial handrails, tower support, and aluminum ladders), ErectaStep modular work platforms can be custom-configured for nearly any worksite, warehouse, tank farm, manufacturing facility, and beyond. 

Plus, Northern Platforms’ highly experienced team can help with your customization needs from start to finish. If you need an industrial work platform, our team will visit your site to identify your access needs, challenges, and goals. From there, we use a state-of-the-art custom configurator tool to create your industrial work platform digitally right before your eyes. That way, not only can you see exactly what your work platform will look like once it’s installed, but you’ll also be able to view an accurate quote and detailed drawings.

This entire process takes mere minutes, so instead of waiting for a custom fabrication company to build your industrial work platform from scratch, choose Northern Platforms and ErectaStep!
