Though our name is often associated with world-class quality scaffolding, Layher can offer various other products, including industrial step platforms. Whether you’re working in the oil and gas, pulp and paper or shipbuilding industries, industrial step platforms are a piece of equipment that is used throughout. Layher’s can be completely customizable depending on their use. Regardless of what industry they’re used in, our customers can rest assured the quality and the ease of use will remain the same because they’ve invested in a Layher product and have the best industrial platform on the market.
How are they used?
The most common use for our type of industrial platform is to repair or replace equipment that is high up and hard to reach, such as pipe racks. It is also used to provide temporary access to perform industrial pipe instrumentation repair, paint and coat, perform mechanical repair, blast, execute a variety of inspections, or conduct electrical work. All of Layher’s industrial step platforms have stair access; therefore, tools and parts can be easily carried up and down.
Most industrial platforms use a version of external ladder access. This can pose a tremendous danger for three reasons. Firstly, the ladder is typically installed outside of the platform, so there is always the danger that someone could hit it. Secondly, climbing ladders can be extremely challenging. Thirdly, that challenge can be even more difficult when you add tools and materials to be transported up and down that ladder.
Layher has added two safety layers to make things safer. We offer the external comfort stair system, making it easier to move up and down the platform, particularly when carrying tools and materials. Alternatively, in uniquely challenging situations, we can offer stairs within the perimeter of the scaffold. This provides an additional level of protection without sacrificing workspace.
Easy to Assemble
Similar to all Layher products, our industrial step platform is made of high-quality galvanized steel. It can withstand harsh and challenging conditions, including extreme temperature fluctuations of an industrial environment. The Layher industrial step platforms come in a multitude of sizes and are all completely customizable. They can be built to any width and height needed. Our most popular size is 5’2×5’2×16’. Additionally, they can be secured with anchorage, guying, or ballast.
Our customers appreciate that all of Layher’s industrial platforms have several add-ons and are customizable. Examples include steel planks, gap covers, or toe boards that are available in galvanized steel. These items can reduce the need for wood, and in turn, the burn rate should anything every catch fire. Also, additional parts and pieces can be added, including consoles, to reach into special areas.
Layher industrial platforms can also be customizable with regard to dimensions and shape. In some instances, engineering might be necessary. We offer support with our engineering department in Houston.
