Tank Top Safety

WG Tankers has developed two systems designed to improve safety for those working along the top of tanks.

In the TRAM system, the operative is linked via lightweight harness to a sliding handrail that tracks the full length of the tank.  Importantly, as the operative clips to the handrail before he/she reaches the top of the ladder, he/she is linked to the system for the move from ladder to top platform and vice versa.

The second system,  the full platform/handrail, offers unrestricted movement along the tank top platform, with vertical and transverse rails stowed ‘collapsed’ and lifting up to provide a four sided space frame at just above waist level.

The entire system is lever operated – assisted by gas struts, although alternative systems are offered.
