4 Distinctive Benefits of Crossover Stairs

For a safe and convenient crossover stairs solutions read out some of the important tips.

Crossover steps are one of those unobtrusive and easy to ignore yet critically important features in many industrial facilities. Factory crossover stairs ensure safe passage over cables or other built in obstacles and conveyor crossover stairs serve to connect between otherwise separated parts of a manufacturing facility. Those are only a few of the examples of how they are used and why they are needed.

Let’s go into a bit more detail as to the important benefits they bring.

Crossing Safely Over Obstacles

This is definitely the primary purpose and main benefit in installing factory crossover stairs. On a busy factory floor or plant rooftop where people come and go, leaving them to step over changes in elevation, pipe lines, air ducts or HVAC systems is inviting disaster. Installing this essential safety feature ensures safe and efficient flow of personnel across those obstacles preventing delays or worse, injury and consequent litigation.

In addition to keeping personnel efficient and safe, crossover stairs also serve to protect the above-mentioned equipment by serving as a barrier between it and everything else.

Crossover Stairs are Durable

Unlike half-measures such as wooden planks and other improvisations often used in their stead, factory crossover stairs and conveyor crossover stairs are built to last and will serve for decades.

Made out of high quality galvanized steel or anodized aluminum, they are perfectly built to stand up to corrosion, heat and humidity. No weather or other conditions indoor or out are going to compromise the protection and convenience they bring. Moreover, and unlike the aforementioned alternatives, this solution can be combined or equipped with custom swing safety gates and other safety features that serve to further protect the facility from unauthorized access.

Extremely Customizable

The way conveyor crossover stairs are designed allows them to be fitted to any facility, adjusting them for width, height and other features. This means they can be made to fit an already existing manufacturing plant or storage facility perfectly without compromising on usable space. Of course planning a new plant with them in mind is even better, making sure they create an optimal passage making for a better, smoother and safer workflow.

There is a variety of finishes and materials to choose from when planning a crossover stair, on every aspect of it.

1. Flooring / Decking: grating, checker plate of vinyl

2. Staircase Base: fixed feet, roof mounted or combined

3. Scale of Platform: customizable lengths and widths

4. Fitting Systems: hundreds of fitting options for every layout

With a wide variety of options, relatively simple installation and all the benefits they bring, we are fully behind the choice of installing factory crossover stairs where needed.
