8-Step Metal Stair Pipe Crossover

Project Profile – Pipe Crossovers and Valve-Access Platforms for New Tank Farm Construction

Jal, New Mexico
Install OSHA compliant metal stair crossovers and valve access platforms for a newly-constructed crude oil tank farm
ErectaStep prefabricated modular metal stair units.

This large ErectaStep project is for a newly constructed tank farm located in the Permian Basin in New Mexico. This installation included several crossover stairs, valve-access platforms. Installations ranged from a combination of standard and customized platform configurations based on customers’ site-specific layout and pipe/valve locations. Using precast concrete pads reduces install time, digging permits and can be field fit with no special tools. Once in place, installs with a shovel, tape measure, and level.

SafeRack was able to offer a turnkey solution, in which we handled the engineering in partnership with the integrator/installer to spec, engineer, and install of all platforms shown.
