Spika’s base and commercial models are innovative, field-tested designs that increase safety, reduce labor costs, and are customizable to help you overcome any access challenge. If you are looking for an industry-specific model, our commercial models have you covered. Our base models provide a starting point for virtually any access solution.
With options for height adjustability, contour conformance, cantilevered access, and onboard utilities, our versatile access solutions help you get the job done safely and efficiently.
Every access requirement is unique. Our team will work with you to choose the best standardized design for your needs and then customize each of its features to deliver you your personalized solution.
Typical deck depths (excluding any adjustable cantilever) are 36” but can be larger or smaller if needed.
Deck lengths vary depending on the situation. A general rule of thumb is 36” of length per person for a comfortable working surface.
Modify any stand with 12”–36” of vertical travel. Height adjustability can be manual from the ground level via acme jacks or powered at deck or ground level. Standard deck heights start at 60”. Minimum and maximum height must be defined.
Guardrails can be permanently attached or removable on any side to provide OSHA-compliant fall protection in all configurations. Vertically telescopic guardrails that lower from 42” down to 28” may be substituted anywhere to accommodate obstacles or protrusions at waist height. Horizontally telescopic guardrails can be designed to close off any sections that have obstructions requiring a guardrail to be removed.
Self-closing safety gates are included at any ladder opening and can be added to staircase openings or other areas where personnel or part access is required.
Is access overtop the equipment required? Any model can provide crossover access by connecting one stand on either side of the tool with crossover rails that extend overtop the equipment.
For equipment that requires overreach or special contour conformance, deck extension sliders can provide gap-free conformance to the equipment in any configuration. Each 6" wide x 24" long aluminum plank extends independently and locks in place automatically when load is applied. Additional locking mechanisms may be included for added security while in use. Automation of the slider deck can be incorporated to custom access projects.
If tasks performed on the platform require standing, sitting, or kneeling (prone or semi-prone positions are available in our customized designs), we’ll create the proper decking to match the positioning requirement.
Will the stand be used in a dusty, wet, oily, or restricted environment that requires special compliance? If so, we’ll build it to the required specifications.
Most decks are designed to accommodate up to 1000 lbs.(or three people and their tools). All decks are designed to support 4x the rated load.
Our platforms are designed to meet the rigorous safety and compliance standards for each of their use cases. Let us know what your compliance requirements are and we’ll design the right platform for you.
By blending curiosity, agility, and proven processes, we’ve made our name solving access and tooling challenges that have rigorous and complex requirements.
