Platform options

Our up and over step platforms come in a variety of designs, sizes and finishes. Whatever your requirements are, we’ve got a solution for you.


Modular or prefabricated
industrial step platforms

All of our step-over platforms are modular units, making them easy to assemble on site without the need of welding.

They are easier to repair too should any section get damaged in time by just removing said section and replacing it with a new one, with minimal down-time. However, sometimes our modular units will not suit the requirements of your project; this is when our team will recommend a prefabricated platform that will tick all the boxes.

Platforms to use
on a rooftop or indoors

Our steps and platforms can be used both indoors and outdoors.

We use high quality, industrial strength materials (such as galvanised steel or aluminium) when building our units, which means that the products will not rot or rust. Powder coating is available.

Use the cross-over step platforms indoors (in factories, warehouses) or outdoors (on roofs) with the confidence that they will stand the test of time.

Industrial cross over platforms built in
any size you need

We will design and build step-over platforms to suit your specific requirements. From cable tray step-overs (our mini versions) to plant access installations, power tower access platforms, rooftop units (our large units) and anything in between – we are here to assist

Fixed, freestanding or mobile

You can choose from a variety of feet options for your platform:

  • PVC counterweights for a freestanding option: Our freestanding rooftop stepovers, for example, use these types of feet so that the roof membrane is not penetrated.
  • Kee Klamp fittings for a fixed version: Our fixed platforms use galvanised steel flanges which require drilling into the ground. This ensures that the platform will not move.
  • Heavy duty castors for mobile work platforms: Our mobile step units are usually used for vehicle maintenance or other similar tasks and require a lot of moving around. This is when a wheeled unit is needed.

Typical uses
for step-over platforms

Step-overs are versatile products that provide a safe, non-slip route over any obstacle or offer access to otherwise hard to reach areas, such as AC units, large vehicles (coaches, trains) or tall industrial shelves for example.

Some of the typical uses for platforms are:

  • To help you navigate over rooftop obstacles - Obstacles include parapets, changes in height, pipes, cables or other units such as AC.
  • To provide maintenance for large vehicles - Our units can be configured to help service buses, lorries or trains.
  • To provide maintenance for aircrafts - We can design bespoke platforms to help with the repair and maintenance of planes or helicopters.
  • Access to other hard to reach areas - Platforms can also be used to access areas otherwise hard to reach such as tall industrial shelving units in warehouses or the top of AC units on a roof. Small or larger stairs units can be used to allow access to various entrances such as the ones for lift shafts on roofs.
  • Bridging over conveyor belts - Step-overs can be built to any size to facilitate access over industrial units such as conveyor belts for example.
