A pre-fabricated conveyor crossover stair installation that didn’t require custom fabrication or special tools.

  • Enhanced Productivity and Safety: ErectaStep’s installation of pre-fabricated conveyor crossover stairs at Nestle Waters’ facilities boosts efficiency and ensures a safer work environment.
  • Flexible and Adaptable Design: The modular design of the crossover stairs allows for easy reconfiguration to meet the evolving needs of the bottling plant, saving time and resources.
  • OSHA Compliance: All ErectaStep products, including the conveyor crossover stairs, are OSHA compliant out of the box, maintaining safety standards without additional engineering.
  • Cost-Effective Installation: The bolt-together construction of the stairs eliminates the need for welding or cranes, simplifying the installation process and reducing costs.

Nestle Waters’ Zephyrhills brand is the number one bottled water in Florida, sourced from a natural spring in the region since 1964. The popular brand has a strong commitment to providing a safe work environment for employees at all of their facilities nationwide. When they were ready to standardize their elevated catwalks, crossovers, and modular stairs to improve efficiency and save on travel time for workers, they knew ErectaStep could design a pre-fabricated metal stair conveyor crossover that could be installed at any bottling location without custom fabrication.

As this installation demonstrates, we designed a modular system that improves productivity while allowing workers to crossover multiple conveyers to align with their rigorous 10-step quality inspection process and dramatically improve efficiency at the bottling plant. With no welding or cranes required for installation, the bolt-together design allows Nestle Waters’ maintenance staff to adjust the crossover stair configurations as the needs of the facility change and grow. This flexibility is not only the most convenient option for a company of this scale, but it also saves precious time and money when changes are inevitably made to the production line.

Additionally, because all ErectaStep products are OSHA compliant right out of the box, all modifications and reconfigurations remain compliant without the need for additional custom engineering. Our modular work platforms and crossover solutions meet the high expectations discerning safety managers and operations staff require to get the job done.
