Work Platforms

Safety. Quality. Innovation.

That’s why Spika Stands for Productivity.

At Spika, we know that the initial cost of a well-designed, high quality work platform is easily offset by higher productivity, reduced worker fatigue, better quality workmanship, and superior fall protection. When you team with us, regardless of your access needs, you can trust Spika to provide you with a system that meets or exceeds your highest expectations.

We specialize in aircraft maintenance stands, industrial work platforms, and custom work platforms. We also offer several standard modifications that can easily be made to any work platform.

Why Spika Work Platforms?

Designs that Meet Your Access Requirements

  • Clear-span designs allow unobstructed access beneath the work platform.
  • Cantilevered deep C-frames allow extensive overreach of obstacles.
  • Sliders extend to interface with aircraft or equipment, providing complete fall protection. Our pneumatic slider locking system secures the sliders into place with the flip of one switch and stays locked even if air pressure is lost, while our friction locking system requires no air to operate and can be used on ultra-thin decks.
  • Bumpers protect the aircraft or equipment from accidental contact.
  • Under-deck foam provides protection against head injury for personnel working underneath the deck.
  • Optional adjustable handrails lower to accommodate overhead interference.

Mobility and Versatility of Configuration

  • Lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum construction minimizes module weight for easy movement.
  • High quality, industrial-duty casters, brakes, and indexing pins are built to stand up to travel over rough and uneven surfaces.
  • Most platforms can easily be moved by only two people.
  • Standard modules offer 1’, 2’, or even 3’ (30, 61, or 91 cm) of height adjustability through manual, electric, or hydraulic actuation; adjustability of 7’ (213 cm) or greater can be achieved through our dual-stage leg sets.
  • Stable, smooth acting variable-pitch staircases accommodate large height variances without the bottom step rising off the ground.
  • Ladders adjust in height, maintaining an ergonomic pitch and ensuring the feet are securely on the ground.
  • Platform end heights can be adjusted independently to accommodate uneven or sloped surfaces.
  • Staircases can be designed to connect perpendicular or parallel to any side or corner, ensuring proper fit within available floor space.

Quick and Simple Set-Up and Reconfiguration

  • Camlock railing attachments utilize fully-captured hardware on a firm, secure rail; handrails are easily removed and relocated in seconds without tools or the potential for lost parts or FOD.
  • Simple, fast, and secure quick-latch systems eliminate the need to line up pins or clamps when attaching staircases to decks.
  • Clamps or link bars securely couple platforms together.
  • Tool-free assembly versions support quick disassembly and reassembly, allowing for consolidated crating and fast set-up and breakdown for deployment.

Work Deck Construction You Can Trust

  • Our standard extruded aluminum plank deck provides sure-footed traction that is easy on skin and clothing. Kneel on it, lay on it - you'll never feel like you’re working on a cheese grater.
  • Deck and sliders are solid and free from “sponginess” and flexing so you can feel confident walking on the platform, even with the sliders fully extended.
  • Steps are constructed of all-weather, non-slip extruded aluminum stair tread.

Engineered for Exceptional Stability

  • Work platforms are engineered to support four times the load rating, with physical static load tests and computer analysis to back it up.
  • Telescopic leg assemblies with lifetime-lubricated bushings provide stability and durability far superior to lightweight, wobbly boat trailer jacks used in other systems.

Quality Manufacturing Built to Last

  • All manufacturing takes place in the United States.
  • All welding is performed by certified aluminum welders compliant with AWS D1.2.
  • Powder coated rails provide clear visibility and durability.
