  • Description
    What’s a ship ladder?  A “Ship Ladder” is defined by OSHA in proposed section 1910.21 as a stairway equipped with treads and stair rails with a slope greater than 70 degrees. Sometimes referred to as ship stairs, the term doesn’t mean it’s only used on ships, but merely stairs/ladders between 50° to 70° of incline and applications are for areas where standard stair length runs are not feasible. In almost every industrial environment, safe access for maintenance and production is a must. Erectastep's series of ship stairs is an OSHA-compliant, configurable solution that provides stability and durability. Plus, because it offers complete customization, it’s made to fit virtually any industrial application need. This steep incline stair is not suited for standard public access, office, commercial, or residential use applications.

    1. Can ErectaStep be customized for my exact needs? A: YES.

    2. What is the "Configurator"?  A: The configurator is our patented design software for the iPad that allows our reps to "virtually" build your unique stair or work platform solution right in the iPad, in a matter of minutes. Sometimes even seconds.

    3. What application is ErectaStep Industrial perfect for? A: Well, there's not much you can't use ErectaStep for. Any application, both interior and exterior that is suitable for aluminum equipment. Perfect for accessing equipment for maintenance, accessing storage mezzanines, egress over dyke walls, pipes, mechanical ducts and so much more. Where ever you need quick, long lasting, access, ErectaStep Industrial will fit the bill. Contact our customer service rep for a free configuration today!
    4. Which is better, powder coating vs. paint or primer? A: Powder coating finishes are much tougher and thicker than traditional liquid paint or primers. And because they use no harsh solvents like paint, there is zero off gassing or foul chemical odors that frequently are associated with traditionally painted finishes. The bottom line, powder coating is tougher, longer lasting and doesn’t smell! Far superior to painted finishes.
