An Ohio winery was looking to gain access to its equipment more safely and efficiently. They also wanted to keep the clean and appealing aesthetic of their winery, so whatever equipment they needed had to meet the standards of their facilities. Specifically, they needed to access the tops of stainless steel tanks, and in addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the solution had to be corrosion-resistant, cost-efficient, and fit precisely into the desired space. The winery called on ErectaStep to help devise a solution for their challenge.

After initially reviewing the architectural drawings and having an on-site visit, ErectaStep understood their customer’s unique situation and provided an access stair and catwalk configuration in a mill finish to meet their needs. The customer loved the clean look of stainless steel, but that would put them over their budget.

ErectaStep came up with a solution that looked aesthetically similar to the stainless steel look, reduced the overall footprint of the platforms and reduced the cost to better align with their budget, all while providing a complete solution to fit their needs.

The mill finish aluminum stair look hit the mark, and ErectaStep aligned with the existing tank and room layout, which completely wowed the customer. They loved what the ErectaStep team came up with and were pleased we could meet all their needs, including budget!

Now, the winery has a convenient and safe way of accessing its tanks while having a system that takes up less space, is tighter to the tanks, and provides cost savings over the original design. Not to mention, the all-aluminum platforms look handsome next to the stainless steel tanks! Overall, it was a seamless and efficient process from start to finish, leaving both ErectaStep and the winery happy!
