Catwalks and elevated walkways: enhancing accessibility in industrial facilities

To ensure safety work at high level over industrial facilities and roof tops, to give proper access to elevated worksites and heights, professional ladders, catwalks and different types of equipment must be designed with all the relevant prerogatives.

Skywalks and industrial ladders

The world of industrial ladders and platforms to facilitate the access to high-levels is quite varied and takes into consideration different facets. From aspects related to safety, those relating to anti-slip and anti-fall measures, to the robustness of the materials, their resistance against bad weather and rust, up to the practical aspects to streamline working methods and facilitate operators in all their phases: from the simple climb to the upper floors up to the possibility of working and carrying objects.

For these reasons, the design of professional ladders and catwalks to support movement to and from raised floors, work on roofs and access to silos, antennas, construction sites and elevated workstations, require a certain competence and experience in the sector, in the knowledge of safety and material regulations, as well as high design capabilities.

A wide range of products

From the simple catwalk to more complicated platform systems, there are a huge variety of tools and industrial step ladders to facilitate the work at high altitudes, taking in consideration the most strict safety criteria.

Scale DC provides a wide range of platform step ladders industrial and professional, to face any type of needs. Among our products you can find different helpful solutions to meet the most disparate needs, in complete safety:
