An Edmonton, Canada, facility needed a reliable valve access solution positioned at a significant height of approximately 16 feet. The task was complicated by tight space constraints and the harsh winter conditions prevalent during the installation period. ErectaStep was tasked with providing a solution that would ensure safety, efficiency, and durability under these demanding circumstances.


The primary challenges in this project included:

  • Space Constraints: The facility had limited space, making it difficult to install standard access solutions.
  • Harsh Winter Conditions: The installation must be completed in cold weather, which could hinder construction and assembly processes.


ErectaStep’s modular platform system was selected for its versatility and ease of installation. Key aspects of the solution included:

  • Modular Design: The system’s bolt-together components allowed for quick and straightforward assembly, crucial under challenging cold weather conditions.
  • Durability: Made from rust-resistant aluminum, the platform promises longevity and reliability, crucial in Edmonton’s demanding industrial environment.
  • Versatility: The platform was tailored specifically for valve access, showcasing ErectaStep’s ability to adapt its solutions to meet precise project requirements.
  • Safety: The installation adhered to OSHA compliance standards, providing a secure working area for operational staff.


The valve access platform installation was a success, noted for its efficiency and effectiveness in meeting the project’s stringent requirements. The platform provided safe and easy access to the valve, facilitating maintenance and service operations. The durability of the rust-resistant aluminum ensures that the platform will continue to function effectively for years to come, despite the challenging environmental conditions.


The feedback from the facility’s management was overwhelmingly positive. They highlighted the installation’s quick completion and the platform’s performance under adverse weather conditions. ErectaStep’s solution not only met but exceeded the operational and safety expectations set by the facility.


This project in Edmonton is a testament to ErectaStep’s commitment to delivering high-quality, reliable, and safe industrial access solutions under any circumstances. The modular design, combined with the durability and safety features of ErectaStep’s platforms, ensures that industrial facilities can maintain high safety standards and operational efficiency, regardless of external challenges.
