The TTSC system is designed to be both lightweight and durable. It comes complete with a set of our FlowStep folding stairs, and for cage sizes up to 6m long it can be manually operated using our sealed compression spring balance system. For cages longer than 6m, we recommend the use of our pneumatic power pack, which provides effortless control of the system from a single control station. The power pack is also ideal for removing any manual handling concerns with the operation of the stairs.
Balanced For Success
The unique outrigger design of our stairs allows the extended cage to travel smoothly through its moving arc without any complications. The compression spring cylinders provide optimum balance to the TTSC, allowing controlled lowering and assisted raising of the system. The stairs also feature our signature foot-protection mechanism that prevents the steps from catching on an operator’s toes as they descend.
Total Tanker Safety Cage Options
The TTSC can be specified with pneumatic powered actuation, allowing the cage to be lowered at the push of a button, perfect for situations where manual handling is a concern. We can also install a moveable access gate that slides into place when a shorter tanker is being operated on. This helps to keep staff safe when frequently switching between full-size road tankers and smaller ISO tanks. If you are having our TTSC installed alongside a loading arm, we can customise the cage to allow the loading arm free movement over the vehicle, making life safer and easier for staff in charge of loading. Additionally, we can include positional sensors that detect when the cage has been returned to the home position, preventing staff from accessing the steps if they are in transit.
