Machine Building Systems is introducing the new item TPS Stairway/Platform System, which will be shown for the first time in the UK at the Machine Building Show (NEC, Birmingham, 25/26 September 2013).
The guard rail aspects of the system include stanchions, hand-rails, foot-rails and knee-rails, all of which can be configured to suit stairways and access platforms. As well as the guard rails, steps and platforms, there is also a range of accessories such as doors, guards and enclosures. Stairways can be constructed in pitches of 30, 38, 45 or 60 degrees, and with clear step widths of up to 1200mm.
Provided the components are correctly specified and assembled, the stairways and access platforms should comply with current standards and guidelines in Europe, including:
As with the item aluminium modular framework system, the individual components within the TPS system are designed to be robust, long-lasting and versatile so that they can be reused or structures modified as easily as possible. Furthermore, the use of aluminium means that components are lightweight and easy to move, position and assemble, yet the bolted structure is strong and stiff (welding is not required, unlike most steel alternatives). There is also no need for painting, as the anodised aluminium does not need any further finishing.
TPS utilises the Line 8 groove from the item MB Building Kit System, meaning that accessories such as enclosures, guards, doors, machine accessories and installation elements can be combined with TPS components.
