Telescoping Loading Ramp
Flat-Ramp Telescoping Gangway
The SafeRack flat ramp telescoping style walkway is a flat ramp model loading ramp with a slip resistant walk surface, with telescoping handrails to eliminate gaps between the gangway and railcar or truck. Popular for railcar loading applications or in conjunction with truck loading arms, it reaches wide tank cars without the need for the telescoping extension, and the use of the telescoped handrails eliminates gaps on narrow railcars.
Telescoping top handrails come on all models without the safety cage option. The telescoping gangway is available in 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72 inch widths as well as 3’ 4’ 5’ 6’ and 7’ lengths. Materials available are aluminum, galvanized steel, or stainless steel.
Optional equipment for the flat ramp style telescoping gangway include a pneumatic package for safe and easy raising and lowering of the gangway, and a pivot mount for aligning the gangway with mis-spotted containers.

Durable and lightweight design
Every question i had, i received an answer within the same day. SafeRack worked closely with us to provide the correct product for our application. The durability of the load out, and the lightweight design even with stainless make this product great.
We have more than 3 of these loadouts in our plant now, and they have been the most durable and easiest load outs to work with, period.
Quality product...as always
Having a product like this in our plant ,sends the statement of safety first. This product makes it very easy for operations. This is a clean product that looks very nice in our plant. Quality product...as always. I am currently recommending a SafeRack product for another area of our plant , and in our upcoming expansions I will point out that I want SafeRack products there also.
Quality and Service that speaks for itself
Travis McCraine was very helpful with determining exactly what parts I needed to order. Whenever I had questions he responded very quickly! Spare part readily available, which is important to prevent downtime of a system. Lightwieght, easily replaced or repaired, high quality constructed.
It's a pleasure to do business with Saferack and will always contact them for any loading rack type jobs I have in the future. Quality products, great service and I think that speaks for itself.

The service is what makes the difference.
The delivery was as promised. Our previous provider fell short on service after the sale, and assistance in providing the correct product for the customer. I am very pleased with the service SafeRack provides. The salesman has been extremely helpful and has gone out of his way to assist in any way possible. Not to be negative, but the fall protection products are comparable, the service is what makes the difference.

Responsive and qualified personnel
SafeRack had equipment to fit our needs, with adaptability to existing equipment. and responsive personnel. SafeRack won the contract due to the detailed attention provided by your field service representative, Mark Gardner. So far all interaction with SafeRack has been positive. We are a chemical manufacturer with rather extensive qualification process for working on our site. SafeRack's safety record qualified them to work on site and they have agreed to meet our required contractor safety training.
Cytec Industries, Inc.
We have 3 and love them all
Fantastic. John Nance helped us every step of the way. SafeRack gangways are simle and easy to lower and raise compared to the plant's old models. Look professional, easy to operate, and my operators are happy (which is the most important benefit).
Finest work platforms available
Great product, reliable, easy to use, safe, with fast delivery and friendly service. SafeRack makes the finest work platforms available.
Better than the competition
The construction of the unit is better than the competition and is very visible as it sits next to other gangways. It stands out! We had been given bad center line measurements from the end user and needed immediate help. David Daniel helped expdite a new gangway and all involved appreciated his help which turned a negative situation into a positve outcome acheiving the ultimate customer experience...Thanks SafeRack!!!

Delivery was prompt and as promised
These racks seem to be much more solid and durable than the Determan gangways we have now. Scott Hite did a great. He came out to our site and personally walked down the location of the new gangway install. Everyone was positive to work with, and there was great customer service and communication all the way through the transaction.

Easy to use and install
Everything was extremely positive - working with Phyllis Sikes made everything extremely easy!
Receipt of approval drawings as well as the delivery is well within the quoted timeframe
Dave Young is very responsive to all of our needs. All inquiries are received in a timely manner.These products work very well for all of our applications and are well priced for the applications. Yes, I can buy similar products from other suppliers at competitive prices, but I do not get anywhare near the expertise, customer service, and prompt delivery that SafeRack provides.
E.I. DuPont De Nemours & Company
Extremely fast delivery, met or beat all schedules!
We would absolutely recommend SafeRack. Great company to work with, and very adaptable. We like both the ease of use of the gangways and Scott Hite's experience and assistance in our project. We are building a state of the art railcar loading facility in some pretty harsh conditions. Mistakes and errors can really slow or stop our progress. SafeRack took away that concern by providing us with a quality product, that we didn't need to worry about following the manufacturing path. Delivered when and what they promised. Read More [+]
We see a long relationship with SafeRack. They have helped us through some difficult design decisions and took the load on themselves. This freed us up to deal with other non-related design aspects. We had some shipping damage issues, that we worked through with SafeRack. Both companies have taken steps to keep from happening in the future. Fantastic product with Superb workmanship.
