REDD Team has the engineering, product development and manufacturing skills to take your customized modular aluminum platforms from design to prototype to production. We are a leading American manufacturer of high quality aluminum access products. Whatever type of access you need, we will meet your most exacting architectural specifications.
Aluminum safety products offer many benefits, but two of the most important are ease of installation and ease of maintenance. REDD Team aluminum access systems are engineered for simplicity of design and overall value.
Platforms on the Jobsite
Safe work surfaces are a critical part of overall worker safety, and aluminum platforms are an excellent choice for keeping your team safe on the job and your business protected from expensive claims, work delays and OSHA violations.
An aluminum platform can be indispensable today in the rapidly expanding shale-oil and gas production industry. With the growth of activity in the Permian Basin, Midland Basin, Eagle Ford Shale, and so on, modular access solutions can establish a safe work environment and save on cost without sacrificing design and quality.
Aluminum work platforms and planks help reduce the cost of scaffolding. They can be used in lieu of stairways and simplify access to roofs, crossovers, mezzanines and other elevated, hard-to-reach areas. They give your team better footing when working on inclines, such as during roofing and painting jobs, and make it easy to create walking spaces wherever they are needed.
Adjustable work platforms are lightweight and easy to move between job sites. They typically come in standard and custom sizes with a broad range of threshold heights. They are fully assembled or modular for convenient field use and ease of transport.
Platforms find a wide range of uses on jobsites. They’re ideal for loading and unloading materials, for painting, hanging drywall, for use as a work surface, for extra reach when washing large vehicles or equipment, and to support workers as they try to reach elevated jobs.
Aluminum’s Material Advantages
Our systems are constructed from 6000 series aluminum alloy with 6061-T6 for exceptional structural strength. This medium-strength heat-treatable alloy is tough, structurally strong, and is an excellent substitute for mild steel products.
Aluminum has one of the lowest densities among commercial metals (one third of copper or steel). This makes our products the best choice in a variety of environmental situations. Even at low temperatures, when steel can become brittle, aluminum increases in strength.
In comparison to most other building materials, aluminum is:
- Naturally beautiful
- High Strength-to-Weight Ratio
- Easily machined, cast, drawn and extruded
- Won’t rot, warp or splinter
- Termite & insect proof
- Virtually maintenance-free
Aside from its weight and strength, aluminum has many environmental advantages. It is 100% recyclable into new products. Experts also believe that the metal has a 20% smaller CO2 footprint, significantly reducing harmful emissions.
All REDD Team aluminum safety products are constructed for strength, durability and safety, and feature a one year warranty. They also meet the guidelines of the U.S. Green Building Council and are appropriate for LEED credits.
