Myth-Buster: Customized fall protection is difficult and expensive.

If we had a dime for every time a maintenance supervisor made this claim, we’d be rich. The truth is, customized fall protection doesn’t have to be difficult. And with ErectaStep, it’s not expensive either. Customers in any industry who choose our customized work platforms avoid the hassle and expense of custom crossover platform stair systems from a fabrication shop. We call that a big win.

ErectaStep – We put the “custom” in customer service.

Five modular pieces allow infinite fall protection and safe access configurations for workers in any industrial application. When customers reported that ErectaStep worked well but would work even better with customizations, we listened. Now any configuration can be customized quickly and easily, so you can get back to work.

ErectaStep helps optimize your facility for safety and productivity from start to finish. Throughout the entire process, our experts are available to ensure your installation is a total success. From configuration to installation and as the needs of your facility shift and change, we’ll be there to keep it simple.

Case Study: Tank Farm Customization

Recently, a tank farm needed maintenance access to pipes for inspection. Although a conventional ErectaStep configuration would have enabled safe access, installing a straight platform around curved pipes would leave a gap. The safety rails would’ve technically provided fall protection, however, access to the pipes would be obstructed, not ideal. Ultimately, the solution would have optimized safety, but not efficiency, adding more time to the workers’ process rather than making it more productive.

Our solution was to customize the work platform by laser cutting an opening to fit snugly around the pipe. Now workers would get the fall protection required and the efficiency they need. It took less than two weeks to build and install, and quickly paid for itself, and then some.

Here’s what another customer said about customizing a fall protection system:

“Custom ErectaStep made obtaining a custom design fairly painless. It was a good solution to a difficult problem. Customization often seems to be an expensive solution, but not in this case. The custom products were reasonable. Engineering was responsive to the custom requirements. It appears they thought about the total cost options. Additional technical assistance helped keep the cost of the purchase down. Lightweight components and bolt-together assembly made it easy to install and aluminum construction will minimize maintenance. It even came with the tools needed for assembly.”

It really can be painless and cost-effective. Give us a call (888) 878-1839 or contact us here and see for yourself how easy it is to obtain a customized, OSHA-compliant fall protection system to make your facility safer and more productive.
