Barge Access

SafeRack is the #1 Selling Aluminum Gangway in North America and our barge ladder access solutions have earned the reputation for being safe, durable and long-lasting in the harshest marine environments.

Our OSHA compliant barge ramps are designed for worker safety and can be fixed to a static structure like a complex platform system, a mobile platform or barge ladder to allow easy operation and storage. Using aluminum alloys, our barge ramps are corrosion and saltwater resistant. SafeRack can customize a barge access solution to meet your unique technical requirements while meeting your budget and deadline.

Whatever your industry, from cement to getting on the barge to remove the hatch covers, to oil and chemical to attach loading and unloading arms, or in a commercial environment requiring ADA compliance, we’ve got you covered.
