SafeRack Tank Car Safety Cage

(Standard Model)

SafeRack 12" deep Safety Cage for Tank Cars (Standard Model). This model adjusts with the gangway as it raises and lowers to the railcar. It is the most popular model because of its simplicity and ease of use but it typically stores inside the railcar clearance envelope. Popular sizes for this and all safety cages are 8x8x12" deep, 7x8x12" deep, or 7x9x12" deep.

SafeRack 12" Deep Safety Cage for Tank Cars

(Vertical Mount Option)

This option is popular when the gangway working position is precisely horizontal and the walk surface of the gangway matches up with the Tank Car walk surface. The safety cage rotates in the vertical position, usually outside the common railroad envelope. This option is not popular when varying heights of railcars are present, or the range of the gangway can vary above or below horizontal, since the cage is only horizontal when the gangway is as well.

SafeRack 12" Deep Safety Cage for Tank Cars

(Pivoting/Counterweight Model)

This option provides a secondary pivot motion to the safety cage, allowing for it to work horizontal even with varying heights of railcars. It is counterweighted and pivots up for clearance issues.

  • Tank Car Safety Gates

    addressed our safety concerns

    Fast delivery, very responsive sales staff, and worked well addressing our safety concerns. The weight, dimensions, color and durability are all great benefits of this product. Not forgetting the overall reason to recommend this product, it improves safety.

  • Tank Car Safety Gates


    I had product within a couple days of ordering. Compared to other products on the market and what we have used, it offers a safer working area, and is easier to install. Stronger-Safer guard for top of tank car openings, and being brightly colored we have not accidentially sent one off site by forgetting to remove from the top of a tank car.

    Huge benifit to customers

    Custom application. Customer service, from salesperson Molly Laqua, has been very responsive. Delivery was as requested and on time. Overall I'm satisfied to date. Three benefits about this SafeRack product: SafeRack installation ability, professional field crews, and responsive sales team.
