Railway Carriage Roof Access

Carriage Roof Access

On the left bridging guardrail frames allow access from either side of the railway carriage while providing the minimum side clearance required at each side of the carriage.

On the right, a mobile cantilivered stairway stand enables safe access to the carriage roof over side pits.

Mobile Cantilvered Stirway Stand

Access to railway carriage roofs can be provided by means of a fixed permanent walkway - this features a fully enclosed, retractable working area for maximum safety.

Fixed Access Carriage Roof Walkways

Fold down edge platforms eliminate any gaps between the railway carriage and the walkway. An interlock system can prevent access and use until all live lines are isolated.

Pantograph Access Ladders

Pantograph Access Ladders are constructed from composite/fibreglass for safer working within areas where there is a risk of exposure to electrical power. One metre walk through stiles provide safer and easier access to the pan area. This ladder can also be used for access to roof mounted air conditioning units.
