ErectaStep stairs were installed to provide workers with safe and convenient access to a diked spill containment area in a chemical facility.

Project Overview

The diked area, constructed by Industrial Flooring Services, is a designated spill containment zone designed to capture and contain potential chemical spills within the facility. This critical safety feature is built using Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP), known for its durability and chemical resistance. To further enhance the resilience of this area, a chemical-resistant epoxy coating was applied inside the dike.

To ensure that workers could safely and easily access this vital spill containment area, an ErectaStep access stair and platform were installed.
