Project Profile – RollaStep as a Scaffolding Alternative.

A large tire manufacturing plant had to regularly access their heat exchangers, a piece of equipment that is used in transferring heat between a solid object and a fluid, or between two or more fluids. Workers needed a work platform to access these heat exchangers for maintenance every 4-6 weeks throughout the year. Each time scaffolding was rented and union contractors were brought in to set-up and break down the units at an expense of $2,400 each time. Additionally, you can see from the photos that the scaffolding was cumbersome, difficult to move from each heat exchanger and wasn’t OSHA compliant.

Replacing temporary scaffolding systems with an MP Series RollaStep saved the customer $18,000 in the first year AND improved maintenance efficiencies with OSHA compliance for improved worker safety.

ErectaStep did a site assessment and recommended a modified MP RollaStep to save money, reduce maintenance time and to improve worker safety. Our MP Series rolling work platform is designed to bring the workspace and stability of a fixed platform to a rolling stair mobile unit. ErectaStep was able to significantly reduce their cost and improve efficiency with an access platform that could be rolled from unit to unit. The ROI on the unit would be recognized 4 1/2 months, now saving over $18,000 in annual costs.


ErectaStep’s work platforms bring a sturdy workspace platform to any environment. The standard RollaStep mobile stair unit is a 9′ x 3′ work platform and can securely and safely accommodate multiple operators with tools and parts.
