Here is one example of KABTech’s economical solutions for stairway tower equipment access.

An electric motor manufacturing company had a growing concern for the safety of their maintenance workers. A routine maintenance task on a furnace enclosure in their warehouse had presented a major issue.

To change the air filters in the furnace, a worker would have to operate a scissor lift to get up to the same level as the furnace, and then cross over a functioning conveyor line. Once on top of the enclosure, the worker would have to remain connected to a safety hook and line while replacing the air filter.

An arduous, time-consuming, and dangerous task needed to be remedied, and quickly. A good and permanent fix to such a problem can seem difficult to come by without a major rework and a lot of expense, but this is where KABTech’s versatility was a key element to ending the problem.

Safe, Economical Solutions for Raised Access Problems

We customized and designed one of our stair towers for safe and easy equipment access. Our first step was to eliminate the risks of crossing over a conveyor line.

We built a pre-fabricated landing with safety-rails for access across the conveyor line. KABTech designed the necessary supports to mount the raised platform that provided access for a safe working area around the furnace’s enclosure.

Then we fit a custom pre-fabricated stairway to the landing as well. Now a job that required several different types of machinery and some considerable risk to workers, is done quickly and safely in a fraction of the original time.

This is one of thousands of possibilities for solutions that KABTech can create. As a long-time provider of Mezzanines, Modular Inplant offices and other warehouse accessibility structures, we have a great deal of experience in problem solving for business with issues similar to the one just described.

Raised Access Platforms for Top-Loading Trucks and Machinery

Platform with officeWe offer economical solutions for companies that require accessing the tops of hoppers, top-load trucks, tankers and other types of vehicles.

Many of these functions require a safe work platform to allow employees to load products, preform equipment wash-downs and servicing.

A better solution to having a construction company fabricate an on-site platform with stairs is to order it pre-fit and prefabricated from KABTech.
