Hatching stations and truck loading present a unique set of challenges and risks. Typically, loading requires three stops, opening truck hatches, bulk loading, and then inspecting and closing hatches prior to driving off.
Each time an operator climbs on top of the trailer or proppant container, the risk of human error increases. SafeRack loading gangways and safety cages protect your employees and truck operators. Our innovative offset safety cage is designed specifically for the cement and the frac sand industry, featuring flared and tapered rungs that give the lid a full range of motion while the equipment is in the working position.
The design also ensures that the gangway and cage won’t have any interference when the equipment is lowered on top of the truck. An added safety feature includes a lockdown device that allows workers to lift the gangway only when safely on the platform and while pressing the footlock assembly.
Designed to be used with both SFR and SAS gangways and can be offset to either the left or the right. And, like all SafeRack products, it’s built with safety and longevity in mind. The heavy-duty aluminum withstands whatever your job or Mother Nature can dish out.
Plus, the three rails on both ends, along with four rails at the hatch area, provide a sturdy and secure workspace. Additionally, its large, 4’x7’ handrail footprint allows workers the room they need to stay productive.
