Bridging Access Platforms
Ajax Bridging Access Platforms are typically designed to bridge the gap between a loading bay and a vehicle load bed when loading and unloading goods.
The Platforms are used extensively in warehouse loading docks and distribution centres to help keep operators safe when loading and unloading at height.
The Bridging Access Platforms have a robust construction, which are fabricated from mild steel and coated in a hot dipped galvanised. This method completely protects the Unit from any harsh environmental elements, making it suitable for both corrosive and chemical conditions.
In addition, the Platforms have an aluminium non-slip tread plate decking for an improved safety under foot when walking across the surface in dry and wet conditions.
The drop range of motion that the Bridging Platform has is ideal for vehicles with varied load bed heights. The Platforms can drop below a horizontal position allowing lower load bed vehicles to still have safe access.
For an easy operation, the Platforms are gas strut assisted and are available with fixed or folding handrails as an optional extra, for improved safety.

Bespoke Bridging Platforms Designs
All of the standard Ajax Bridging Platforms are complemented by our ability to customise them to suit your non-standard operations and requirements.
A handful of our customers have received a bespoke Bridging Platform to cater for their industry demands.
For example, Ajax fabricated, delivered and installed 4 pneumatic linear moving drop platforms for a customer who needed safe access to their vehicles in their recycling area. These platforms protected operators from falling into large screw feeds where recycled waste would be deposited as part of their new Greener Energy Policy.
