Railcar Maintenance Stands and Access Platforms
The transportation of goods across railways requires nearly round the clock unloading, loading, and routine maintenance to keep lines moving. FlexDecks provides complete maintenance stand access solutions for the full scope of railcar operations and servicing. In addition to mobile and fixed access stands, FlexDecks can provide ground-based railing systems to protect pedestrians and workers near railways.
Many of the services required for loading and unloading rail vehicles are located within the train roof section. Our access platforms are designed with user safety as the driving factor. Solutions include gangways and safety cages to facilitate all methods of loading and unloading while providing safe, efficient access.
Due to the sheer size of railcars and the location of areas requiring maintenance, there’s no avoiding working at height when performing routine servicing of trains. FlexDecks engineers are familiar with these challenges and have designed railcar maintenance stand access solutions to accommodate safe and efficient inspection and servicing of these vehicles, even in congested environments.
