Access solutions and workstations for tankers, silo vehicles and tank wagons

In order to ensure the occupational safety of employees in the logistics and transport industry when filling tank and silo vehicles with chemicals and fuels or with highly sensitive goods such as dust and trickle goods, safe access solutions and work platforms from KRAUSE are required. With solutions from the field of tanker ladders and individual accesses to tanker and silo vehicles KRAUSE offers an extensive range of standard tanker ladders with different railing basket designs (round and angular) and furthermore also in two alternative step designs (aluminium grooved and aluminium grating).
