SafeRack Helps Chemical Company Create Safe Access with Track Mounted Gangway on Time and on Budget

What else do you need to customize when you handle dangerous chemicals? A track-mounted gangway might just be the best solution to provide safe access to your workers. Most of the time, a customized solution for a specific need that would keep workers safe and keep operations running smoothly.

In an industry where the handling of hazardous materials is routine, safe and accessible transport is paramount. A chemical manufacturing company sought out our assistance in creating a custom access solution to allow workers to spot bottom loading tanker trucks with access across multiple hatches. SafeRack reps made a site visit to assess the unique aspects of the project and meet with the client to create a customized solution that would keep workers safe and keep operations running smoothly.

It was determined that space restrictions in existing lanes, curbs, and centerlines would create additional challenges on this project. The proposed track mounted gangway would need to be far enough away from the bottom loading arms to ensure the pedestals didn’t obstruct the unloading process. The height of the platform also needed to account for existing overhead obstructions.


The timeline for this project was tight. Thanks to our cutting edge quoting and design process and extensive product inventory, SafeRack reps were able to meet the client’s deadline easily.


A 40’ track mounted gangway was installed allowing the client to maximize efficiency, spotting trucks one time across multiple hatches in close proximity to unloading hoses. A modified stair unit was also installed strategically accommodating an existing pipe rack obstruction. Another successful gangway project complete!
