Lightweight mobile step units for top loading tanker access
AJAX Righthite, the UK's leading manufacturer of Tanker Access Systems, has developed a light weight mobile vehicle access platform designed for tanker loading areas where floor space is considered to be at a premium. This is often an issue in the chemical industry and other operations, such as those using bulk powder loading bays.
The concept of the AJAX Righthite mobile platform is to be able to easily transport the platform to the vehicle to be loaded or checked. The height of the AJAX Righthite platform can be adjusted to the vehicle by a mechanical hand winch.Once in position and secured, safe access to the vehicle is achieved for the operator.
For high risk petrochemical environments safe access systems can be manufactured and supplied with comprehensive documentation to evidence that all components and materials comply fully with the latest ATEX Directives (94/9/EC).
