When a university in West Virginia needed safe access to rooftop HVAC units, SafeRack’s ErectaStep brand provided an efficient prefabricated platform solution that saved the school time, space, and money. The project began with a site visit where SafeRack reps noticed that rather than building two separate platforms, two areas could be accessed from the same prefabricated elevated platform.
University staff were thrilled with the suggestion and relieved to discover a simple solution for a complex safety need. OSHA compliance was a given, as all ErectaStep modular units meet the rigorous safety standards of all regulatory agencies. Platforms were assembled on the ground then lifted and installed on the roof. The process took 4 days and university representatives were pleased with the efficiency of the project in general.
The success of this project led university administration to contract with SafeRack to provide safe rooftop access systems on several other building on campus.
The facilities manager of the university was presented with a desktop scale model of ErectaStep’s prefab elevated platform at the conclusion of the project as a thank you. A few weeks later, the gift caught the attention of a prospective customer visiting the university and SafeRack was recommended without hesitation. The inquiry led to conversations, drawings, and proposals and we added another satisfied customer to our list.
