ErectaStep metal stairs are manufactured with patented technology, using a high-tech process with precision lasers to bend aluminum, eliminating the need for numerous welds. And by eliminating these non-critical welds, each stair unit has fewer potential fail points, greatly reducing the risk of injury. This process also creates a stronger, more durable product for your facility—one that will withstand daily use and last for years to come. Our standard stairs are 26 inches wide with a 9-inch rise, and they use stamped aluminum treads to ensure ample traction and room for workers to step up and down safely without slips or falls.
Customization is Key
Sometimes you need the ability to customize your stair and platform system to fit a specific application. With the ErectaStep configurator tool, all you need are workspace measurements to design a system that seamlessly fits your unique environment. Regardless of the situation, ErectaStep precision metal stairs keep workers safe and make access to equipment much more efficient.
Making the Most of AluminumThe manufacturing process ErectaStep employs creates a product
with the strength of steel and the weight of aluminum. Manufactured from the highest grades of aluminum and using the latest precision technology, ErectaStep stairs are more than twice as light as their steel counterparts, making setup and repositioning easier for your employees. Whether you need stairs that are OSHA-compliant or IBC-certified, ErectaStep can provide you with custom solutions to fit your needs.

Whether you are considering a new metal stairs system, loading platform, or an OSHA required crossover metal stairway,there are options out there, but you should tread with care when making your choice.It would be best if you factored in:
Not to compromise worker safety by implementing something unsteady
Meet all OSHA requirements for inspection or reinspection purposes
Plan for possible expansion or plant reconfiguration by building vertically or outward. (Take advantage of overhead space)
A system that will last and meet safety requirements for years and still look great
Absolute best product for your plant or workspace
Installation measured in a few hours or days with minimal or no production shutdown
The modular five-piece ErectaStep system has become the best choice in the market for many reasons for thousands of satisfied project managers and safety engineers.
No doubt that the ErectaStep components are designed and configured around your needs.Many other metal stair products come as-is.Your needs have to be adapted to a non-configurable subpar product — Erectastep sets around your needs.
ErectaStep takes a better approach and implements solutions to your company’s unique needs.If you have a piece of equipment that needs to be accessed frequently for standard maintenance, calibration,repair or cleaning an Erectastep platform with metal stairs can be configured easily around the mechanism so all the access work points can be entered safely by one or multiple workers.
Your workers are more confident on a stable, robust platform that handles the weight of them and the additional equipment or tools needed for the job.They can work standing, kneeling, or even in a prone position as required.
Here is how the ErectaStep System can serve your company today:
We have helped companies install metal stair platforms around any shaped work requirement.We have helped establish solid stair or ladder work platforms for flatbed trailers that need two-sided access.
We work around storage tanks that need monitoring, and easy access for valve shutoff and flow re-direction points for processing plants.
We work with prototype projects that require multi-level work points, OSHA required crossovers of electrical, pipeline, and production lines, fuel loading and unloading depots, and many other applications.
Anywhere a worker has to have safe, sure trustworthy access to a job Erectastep is the install state of the art metal ladder or stair system that meets safety requirements, that looks great and will last for years.If you have old scaffolding in place or a simple portable ladder, it is time to consider a modern safety solution.
METAL STAIRS CROSSOVER SYSTEM
Areas in plants and other job sites that do not have installed crossovers are a constant source of injuries that OSHA looks for. Workers will often duck under a production line if a crossover is not present.Ducking under a line can result in worker injury, production stoppage, and lost time.Crossovers are needed to get over ground level pipes, electrical conduits, and other trip hazards.Offering your workers a crossover point makes it clear that the way to address an obstacle is to go over it safely.Save lost time due to injury, and production line downtime by planning and installing multiple production line crossovers.ErectaStep’s quality components are OSHA compliant right out of the carton, and simple crossovers can be constructed in mere hours.Putting the best possible crossover in place affords you instant OSHA compliance and a proactive peace of mind.Whether replacing an older crossover or installing a new one, ErectaStep makes sense.
FUEL TANK FARMS
If your site is a fuel tank facility or a refinery, you know that there is an incredible need for crossover points.Ground level and elevated pipes circulate through the whole yard creating many areas where safe crossovers should be installed.Weather comes into play where snow and ice can be a factor.These are dangerous situations for workers.The nonslip diamond pattern stairs meet all the OSHA requirements for width and depth, and they clean with ease when icing occurs.Solid handrails, gates, and guardrails ensure confident, safe crossovers.There is no stretching and bending over multiple pipes to get to a flow control mechanism or an inspection point.
At fuel tank farms, reliable crossovers are an investment in safety and a great proactive endeavor against lost time due to workplace injury. It is always better to crossover a series of pipes than to duck under or contort over.Invest in peace of mind by analyzing old crossover systems and implementing the modern solution made by ErectaStep.You will gain OSHA compliance and peace of mind knowing that you installed the best and are backed up by a company that cares about your workers.

A QUICK COMPARISON
Rolling Stairs – There are rolling stairs on the market.There is a time and place for rolling stairs, but an installed stair or ladder system where constant work is required is most often the absolute best solution for OSHA compliance.Summary:A great installation will last for years and provide peace of mind.
Elevated Access and Mezzanine Access – This is no area for a cheap shortcut.Reaching the highest points on your site should be done with ease, confidence, and safety.Adding an “as is” manufactured solution is in most cases a shortcut with worker safety.With Erectastep OSHA compliant safety standards are right out of the box.Think about what an OSHA inspector has to do to scale a height quickly.
Don’t Settle for Subpar Materials – Using products made from subpar materials can lead to a rapid decline in functionality, material fractures, and eventual falls.With Erectastep you won’t have to replace it anytime soon because the industrial-grade aluminum adjusted to your sites weight requirements is necessary.Accommodating multiple workers, tools, and equipment is part of a custom installation and is configured into the process. You are buying the best product.
