Portable Platforms for OSHA Compliant Fall Protection for Railcar and Trucks

We offer several portable truck access platforms. Pictured is our PTA series unit for loading, unloading, inspection, and sampling applications. These units provide an additional level of safety when you need to access the top of different types of trucks and will not, or cannot depend on truck installed access ladders or traditional stationary loading racks for fall protection.

Industry Fall Prevention | Loading / Unloading Solutions

Modular Access Systems’ manufacturer’s engineers have standardized our platforms, loading racks, safety bridges and gangways by surveying hundreds of unloading and loading racks and developing a common standard. Our engineers started with the standard heights of trucks and rail cars that our customers use and then integrated the OSHA guidelines for fall protection. Then we developed a product line of loading platforms, loading racks, bridges, and gangways that we pre-manufacture that meets this combined set of standards.
