Loading gangways are an integral part in achieving a comprehensive safety access system. Regardless of your needs, Safe Harbor has an innovative, custom-engineered gangway suitable to satisfy all your specific loading and off-loading needs. Available in a variety of styles and widths, our gangways are sure to provide the perfect solution.


A gangway is a platform or walkway engineered to provide safe access between a tower or platform and a truck, boat, railcar or another type of platform. Certified with the highest standards (OSHA), our gangways are designed for a wide range of heights and variances. Better still, if an older platform is currently still in operation, we can retrofit our Gangways to your existing structure and customize it to suit your specific application. We work hard to ensure the job commissioned is compatible and operationally engineered to maximize efficiency while minimizing the costs associated with replacing older safety access systems.
