One single pedestal-style rail car access platform was provided and installed. The unit unlocks, folds down and extends out to the rail car. The platform was equipped with a 30” wide stair unit to grade. The tower was constructed of galvanized steel, slip resistant bar gratings, walk surface and handrails with midrails and toeboards.
The gangway is a 48” wide flap ramp with a 1’ – 10” telescoping extension for gap protection, a +15/-15 degrees from horizontal working range with self-leveling handrails, midrails and toeboards.
