Collapsible Pit Handrails for Service Pits

Collapsible Pit Handrails

Collapsible Pit Handrails-Installed

How does a retractable handrail work?

With our Collapsible Pit Handrails, your workers will easily unlatch and release the handrail into the pit in under a minute, allowing the movement of equipment over the pit service area.

When workers want to enter the work pit simply use the pull handle and place the handrail in the upright position, fully latched, this process takes less than one minute.

Collapsible Handrails are custom-built for your service pit.

Do they work on every pit? The simple answer is most, we have built them for several different applications over the last 13 years. We have a simple layout form to check measurements and obstacles to confirm usage. We have found about 96% of industrial service pits are fully suitable for the handrails.

Are your Collapsible Pit Handrails in stock and ready to ship?

We custom-fit and built to order, we do have several subcomponents and machined parts in stock, and the typical lead time is only a few weeks.

How are they installed?

Complete fabrication and fit-up are done before we ship to your site. Then, your crew will mount 2 rails to the wall and a bracket to mount on the stairwell stringer or the supplied angle mount, if needed.

We provide a slide deck showing all the steps required.

Why do we need handrails for our work pits?

They may be required by your State, County, or City building or worker safety codes. Over the last several years new requirements have been put in place.

If not required by law, you may consider most Slips, Trips, and Falls are preventable yet, still represent one-third of workplace injuries and deaths.
