OSHA IBC Compliance

IBC Compliant options available

Modular components – in stock and ready-to-ship

Because our stairs use in-stock, bolt-together components, the need for custom fabrication or engineering is eliminated.

No welding, hot permits, fabrication, or cranes are required to install any configuration.

No welding or special tools needed. Bolts together easily.

In stock, ready-to-ship

Eliminate costly engineering and time consuming fabrication

With our proprietary configurator, we can build your unique stair or work platform configurations in minutes. We can also create pre-engineered shop drawings at no additional cost by adding the project measurements.

You’ll also be able to visualize your project with realistic rendering in real-time. You can be confident your design meets all OSHA requirements without the time and expense of an engineer.

Customizable & reconfigurable

Have a challenging project? – While our modular design can be configured for the most challenging installation, we can also create and fabricate custom components to integrate with our standardized components to meet ANY project requirements.

Repurpose with ease – Because our system is modular, simply unbolt and re-install in a new location. This also means you can easily replace parts without replacing the entire unit.

Modular, customizable, and can be reconfigured with ease

Custom colors and finishes

Custom colors and finishes are available to suit your requirements. Our standard stairs, towers, and platforms are mill finish and our handrails come with durable, powder-coated surfaces, which is much tougher, thicker, and longer-lasting than traditional liquid paint or primers. Zero off-gassing or foul chemical odors, too.

Custom colors available. Safety yellow and mill finish standard.

Common applications for work platforms

  • Equipment Maintenance: Provide elevated platforms for inspecting, repairing, or servicing machinery and infrastructure.
  • Facility Maintenance: Assist in tasks like painting, cleaning, or light fixture replacement in buildings and warehouses.
  • Generator, air handlers, and HVAC system: Maintenance platforms provide access to control doors, which are typically located at elevated heights for this type of equipment.
  • Assembly and Installation: Aid in assembly and installation tasks at elevated heights.
  • Access to Elevated Infrastructure: Enable safe access to pipes, ducts, electrical panels, and generators for maintenance work.
  • Vehicle Cleaning/Maintenance: Allow works to access vehicles, such as wash stations.
  • Utility and Energy Facilities: Support maintenance operations in power plants, including access to generators and control panels.
  • Emergency Access: Access to control panels, valves, and equipment for emergency shutoffs.

Remarkably sturdy and will never rust

While our products are made with aluminum, don’t let that fool you into thinking our product is not durable and stable. Our heavy-duty grade aluminum is as sturdy as traditional steel stairs.

The entire line of ErectaStep products will never rust, warp, or rot. Components are low maintenance and will last much longer than wood or steel.

Quality Manufactured in the United States

Made with industrial grade aluminum

ErectaStep’s modular components bolt together to create infinite configurations, thus eliminating custom fabrication and reducing costs and installation time. Our weather-resistant aluminum products ensure the industry’s longest service life, and can help contribute to various LEED v4.1 credits.

The product added improved safety to my operation, does not take up much room and makes the operators line of sight a lot better.

So, I ordered ours with a ladder instead of the steps, and it worked out perfectly.
