Any Size Railcar loading platform– From one railcar car to hundreds
Turn Rail Cars Quickly and Safely. Trains come in all shapes and sizes. As a result, you need a flexible railcar loading safety system that easily accommodates every configuration that rolls into your station. Equally as important, you need railcar fall protection systems that not only efficiently loads railcars, but also protects your workers.
Decades of Railcar Fall Protection Experience. SafeRack built one of the first crude oil railcar loading safety systems, so we know what works in the field. And we know how to build railcar loading systems that keep on working, too. We design, engineer and install railcar loading platforms that keeps loading rail cars and operations running efficiently and consistently.
Track-Mounted Railcar Loading Gangways and Railroad Fall Protection
Safe Access to Any Railcar, No Matter The Spot
With SafeRack’s track-mounted gangways, and fall protection systems, railcar inconsistency is no longer an issue. A track-mounted gangway slides horizontally along the platform, allowing workers to safely and easily access railcar any place along the track system without stopping to move the train.
Improved Efficiency, Uncompromised Safety
SafeRack’s track-mounted loading gangways give operators the flexibility they need to spot vehicles of all types and sizes. This means you’ll speed up your loading or unloading time. And that means you’ll cut costs and increase your overall productivity as a company.
Plus, our track-mounted railcar gangways are built with all the same safety mechanisms as our standard gangways. Our railcar fall protection systems are equipped with a safety cage and a durable, long-lasting design, you can trust your operators will have a secure working environment—today and tomorrow.

SafeRack Collaborates with Nalco to Build Platform Gangway
Nalco chose SafeRack to build its platform gangway because the solutions provided by SafeRack are out of box and actually work. SafeRack built the platform gangway and cage for proper loading and unloading from the tank trucks and iso containers. These platforms are safe and secure and the workers actually focus on their job now instead of worrying about their safety.
As leaders in the industry, we offer a wide range of loading rack solutions to meet your facility’s demands—including one-of-a-kind demands. No matter how complex your application, we’ll craft a custom platform solution to solve your unique challenges. We're there with you—and for you—from start to finish.
With years of experience designing loading platform systems, SafeRack’s team of engineers can fully integrate any new solution into your existing application. Regardless of your challenges, though, everything has to work together in a cohesive, efficient and productive way. That’s why we’re here to help guide you.
We begin every railcar loading platform fall protection project with a visit to the site. We do this to understand firsthand our customers’ goals and challenges. We then visit the location where loading will take place to take measurements and formulate ideas. Using cutting-edge, 3D configurator technology, these ideas can be visualized and easily shared with our customers on the spot. Modifications and improvements can be made on-site, as well.
It’s a collaborative process that includes the transporters, as everything about the rail cars they’ll be loading at the site is incorporated into the ultimate solution. And it’s this attention to detail that ensures successful projects (and happy customers).
The SafeRack MAUI unit is an excellent choice if you are concerned about the safety of environment and your workers. Compared to other loading racks, MAUI is a self-supporting and portable rack, meaning you can take it anywhere with you when you have to unload the tank trucks. Oil Tanking Joliet facility is using this rack and they seem super satisfied with it.
Today we're going to OilTanking in Channahon, Illinois. It's the Joliet terminal.
We're the OilTanking Joliet facility, we're located just a couple miles south of the village of Channahon. We're a bulk chemical facility. We handle barge, rail, just liquid chemical. We ship out by tank truck.
