Truss style gangways
Our TG series aluminum gangways for barge and ship access use a rugged truss construction to provide a live load capacity of 750 pounds and can be custom constructed to accommodate even higher load capacities. Depending on the operating angles needed, you can choose from several walk surface styles to improve your footing when operating at steeper angles. Choose from a flat ramp (diamond tread or our stamped aggressive tread used on our self-adjusting stair (SAS) series), add cleats to a flat ramp walk surface to allow up to a 30-degree incline, or choose our custom extruded curved treads to allow up to 45 degrees of operation.
As for handrails, use ropes to secure the vessel to the dock, not to keep your operators from falling off the brow. Ship access can be a dangerous thing in volatile conditions; make that access as safe as possible. Our handrails are laser cut from 2” square tube and robotically-welded from continuous pieces to provide structural stability to the gangway and give your operators the very best in fall prevention. To further set the standard, our handrails get powder coated with high visibility orange giving an aesthetic value that will last for years.
Our advanced corrosion-resistant, marine grade aluminum vessel gangways are designed for OHSA compliant worker safety, durability and reliability in marine environments. MarinaStep gangways are built- to-order to your required length and specifications and they’re built to last, too. Constructed of durable aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel, our vessel gangways are available in sizes up to 50’ in length and 5’ in width. However, special-purpose gangways exceeding those measurements can also be built.
SafeRack is committed to workplace safety. This is why we manufacture durable and long- lasting aluminum safety products including: marine gangways, dock gangways and custom marine ramps for safe access to and from barges and ships. With a long history of building gangways, our patented ship gangways and ramps are custom designed by our engineering staff to meet your application needs and built for durable and long-lasting performance in harsh marine conditions.
Aluminum design results in a longer-lasting solution that require less maintenance
- Stronger Design
U-body design reduces welds and failures
- Expedited Access
Quick order processing, readily available replacement parts and fast delivery
- Variety of Sizes
Available in sizes up to 50’ in length and 5’ in width. Special-purpose gangways exceeding those measurements can also be built
- Multiple Wheel Options
Choose from Tilt and Roll multi-directional wheels, swivel casters, fixed wheels, or
a dock roller as standard. If you have a special application, we can design something to meet your needs.
- Variety of Walk Surfaces
Flat ramp, stamped aggressive tread, cleats, and extruded curved tread
- Configured for Your Application
Can be used in a fixed, mobile, or stand-alone application
- Lift Options
If you need your gangway to be fixed and not stand-alone, you can use your own crane, or choose from counter-balanced springs, hand-winch operation, pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, or a pneumatic, hydraulic, or electric winch.
- Handrail Design Strength
Our handrails are laser cut from 2” square tube and robotically-welded from continuous pieces to provide structural stability
