Platforms are free-standing steel constructions. Depending on the requirements, the construction can be adapted to different heights and load capacities. It is also possible to disassemble and reassemble the constructions without any particular requirements.
Platforms – parts and components
The supports are the pillars the whole construction rests on. Type and design of the supports depend on the height, the needed robustness and the distance between the supports. The most economical solution is usually a distance of 4 to 8 metres between the pillars.
Together with the supports, the main beams form the platform frame. Type and design of the supports depend on the needed robustness and the distance between the supports. (structure gauge).
The purlins serve to support platform surface. The purlins are mounted on the carrying construction without loss of height. Supported purlins may cantilever to meet specific building requirements.
Vertical and horizontal cross beams
The cross beams stabilise the platform system. A special construction without cross beams is available to allow vehicles to pass under the platform.
Platforms – floor covering
We offer different types of floor coverings – depending on the load and the desired anti-slip effect. Chip boards are often used as standard. Other coverings such as chequered plates (corrugated sheet metal) or textured coated boards are also possible.
The railings are fully made of steel ensuring the required safety levels in the warehouse.
The very robust staircase includes a railing on either side. The steps are available as mesh grids, chequered plates or solid wooden planks. If required, intermediate platforms can be included. The staircase can be flexibly positioned. The stairs can be positioned at different angles (90/180 degrees etc.). They can be placed below or in front of the platform with or without intermediate platforms.
Transfer station secured by chain
The transfer station is used to stack or destack pallets. To secure the transfer station against dropping over the edge, it is built to the applicable regional requirements and secured with a detachable chain. (In accordance with the requirements of BGR 234, applicable for Germany, the minimum depth is 800 mm)
Platforms – main accessories
The safety lock is an alternative to the transfer station and is opened and closed manually. Independent of the lock position, the operator on the platform cannot step over the edge of the platform. The safety lock is particularly recommendable if the safety requirements are very high.
