Our FlowStep range of folding stairs for tanker access provide a safe and easy way to access and work at height on top of road and rail tankers. Their simple design allows the stairs to automatically self-adjust to the height of the tanker and always ensures the steps are in the horizontal position for the safest operation. Our folding stairway design acts as a folding access platform, providing a safe, efficient, & flexible tanker access solution.
The folding stairs design is balanced with the aid of a sealed compression spring, which provides all the force necessary to lift and lower the stairs with minimal operator effort and maximum control. A durable, marine-grade nylon rope helps assist in control and a heavy-duty stainless steel chain provides a lock support for the stairs in their extended position.
Other features include a foot-operated parking pedal which locks the stairs in the parked position, an extended last step to allow for easy access onto the tanker top and a flip up hinged, anti-trap mid step.
Our road tanker folding stairs are available in a variety of sizes and specifications, including various reach and width options. Our FlowStep stairs are often supplied with a fall prevention safety cage. This three-rail cage provides a safe working area while on top of tankers and negates the need for any type of fall arrest harness or other fall protection system.
Our Flow-Step range of self-levelling folding stairs have been developed & refined over several years, & form part of an effective & efficient fall prevention solution conforming to the latest best practices for work at height operations on road tankers, ISO tank trucks & tanker trucks. They are also spring balanced to make them easy to operate with the use of heavy duty spring cylinders & a pull rope which is used to help raise the stairs up.
