New Product Announcement: Access Line
Access company Flexicon (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) has recently introduced a new line of anti-slip access platforms to reach elevated process equipment safely, eliminating the need for ladders, scissor lifts and forklift cages.
The company reports that the new modular systems include braced frames which can be bolted to the floor, 48-inch square deck sections and stairways with elevations up to 96 inches. The new access platform also features upper grab rails and mid-height rails bolted to stairway stringers and deck perimeters, and auto-closing hinged safety gates and anti-slip grating on treads and decks to maximize operating personnel security.
Modularity allows stacking of frames to attain high elevations and joining of decks in 48-inch square increments to create elevated walkways and extended mezzanine areas in shapes conforming to equipment configurations and plant layouts, the company says.
Flexicon reports that control panels can also be mounted to the access platforms via braced frames.
In addition to access platforms, Flexicon also manufactures flexible screw conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, tubular cable conveyors, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, manual dumping stations, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching systems and automated plant-wide systems integrated with new or existing process equipment.
