Collapsible Handrails

Collapsible Handrails for Industrial Shop Safety


Workers needing access to a pit can quickly raise the collapsible handrails and enter the pit safely.
Do your pits comply with OSHA and local standards for stairwell safety.
Falls are one of the most common workplace injuries, and stairs present one of the biggest fall and injury risks on the job, so having a handrail for all stairwells is key to reducing injuries.  You can install our Collapsible Handrails on most existing pit stairwells.

Very is easy to operate with included handle for pulling into place.

Blue Steel has developed a Collapsible handrail set up that is a first in work pit safety. The handrails easily lock in to place and release with our heavy-duty latching system.

Durable Construction with over a decade of installations being used every day.

The durable and corrosion-resistant stainless steel locking mechanism can withstand oil, chemicals, and other harsh workplace environment conditions. The rolling parts are UHMW, so they move smoothly into position; the handrails and wall channels have a durable powder-coated surface.

Many of our installations have been in service for over a decade without a failure. Our collapsible handrails are custom-built to install in your service pit correctly.

Make sure your company is OSHA Compliant and check your local code requirements also.

Shop Forklift Barriers

Shop Forklift Barriers

High Pressure Line and Electrical Protection


One of our shops needed custom floor plates and barriers for a new equipment installation.  With heavy equipment traffic in this area we needed to use some 3/4″ Steel Floor plate.  With exposed plumbing it was necessary to build heavy plate protectors to avoid damage from passing forklifts or other heavy machinery.

Hydraulic Aluminum Crossover Bridge

Installation of a crossover bridge

A Crossover Bridge will be a huge timesaver in your shop. With a push of a button, your workers can safely move across shop locations and not waste that time or risking injury walking up and down ramps and stairs.

This installation shows how the bridge we installed 10 years earlier was salvaged from a location that was shut down and modified for its new home.

The Original Bridge Installation was about 1999- Photo shows taken 2003
The pump was mounted under the concrete ramp.
After we refurbished the hydraulics and pins and a new paint job
We had to design an anchor stand for the bridge since this metal grating deck was not suitable for mounting the bridge
The stand also served as our pump mounting location under the bridge.

This stuff is heavy duty!!

With all the talk about all the big things going on today, we figured we could take some time to clear up something.  Our pegboard and our heavy duty custom hangers are one of our most popular products with heavy industry because so many “homeowner” type products are being re-marketed to the industrial sector we decided to go big.  From our storage cabinets to wall mounted pegboards they are all geared toward 5S tool organization for the industry sector.  We even call it the “industry standard”.

Just how tough is it? Well here is a photo of about 85+ pounds hanging in the same area of the mounted board.  The pegboard panel and hangers are built to be used in a heavy shop environment.

Is it time to upgrade your shop or tool room?  Give us a call or email.
