Aluminum Industrial Stairs & Platforms

The innovative TPS or “Stairway Platform System” from item International is a whole new way to look at elevated workspace, industrial and warehouse mezzanines, work platforms or inspection areas in factories, manufacturing facilities, automation cells or assembly operations. This extruded aluminum stairs and platform system allows for customized, elevated workspaces to be designed around large and non-standard applications. item’s TPS system makes it easy to comply with safety standards and insure the highest level of employee protection.

Similar to the item Machine Building System, the TPS System includes a set of basic, standard extruded aluminum components focusing on both stair and platform configurations, which allow for quick design and easy installation. Based on the t-slot grooves, this stair and platform system is compatible with item’s expansive Machine Building Kit System. This enables design engineers to simplify large projects by integrating work platforms with safety enclosures, machine bases, and other machine structures. item’s robust fastening technology enables users to build stable industrial stairways and platforms without the need for additional welded seams. Single and multi-platform configurations are possible to meet the requirements of almost any special application.

Aluminum industrial stairways and platforms have never looked this good. The anodized finish of the TPS system will not rust. It is relatively maintenance-free and is very aesthetically pleasing. Stanchion and handrails can be sealed to form clean, closed cylindrical surfaces to minimize the impact of foreign particulates.

Unlike traditional work stairway and platform systems, the TPS system is a bolt-together technology, which is easily assembled in your facility. The TPS system is 100% reusable and can be re-configured time and time again to suit your needs as they change.  All industrial mezzanine, stair, and platform solutions are individually configured and can satisfy the most stringent safety requirements. Installation of a TPS solution is exceptionally straightforward because it shares many of the same basic  

Unlike traditional work stairway and platform systems, the TPS system is a bolt-together technology, which is easily assembled in your facility. The TPS system is 100% reusable and can be re-configured time and time again to suit your needs as they change.  All industrial mezzanine, stair, and platform solutions are individually configured and can satisfy the most stringent safety requirements. Installation of a TPS solution is exceptionally straightforward because it shares many of the same basic extruded aluminum components and principles of item’s Machine Building Kit System. Utilizing a modified Profile 8 120x40 light, item’s engineers in Germany have achieved the right balance of durability, rigidity, and price.

Every task and every space is different. That’s why TPS offers a choice between ease of use and space-saving designs. Aluminum industrial stairs can be designed to OSHA-approved pitch inclines of 30, 38 and 45 degrees. With a high load capacity, securable safety guards, and modular components, TPS work platforms and stairways offer unparalleled versatility. All these features enable manufacturing and maintenance departments to have easy access while maintaining safe employee working conditions.

MB Kit Systems’ engineering team can offer suggestions for aluminum industrial stair and platform components and designs. For current projects please provide us with an .STP file. If a 3D model is not available, please provide an illustration with critical dimensions, any specific components or materials, and any other pertinent information for MB Kit Systems' engineering team to provide you with a comprehensive stairway and platform solution.

Upcoming Events

The Original Machine Building System

The item Machine Building System began in 1976 in Solingen, Germany, when Gerrit Pies and Wolfgang Rixen recognized the opportunity for a standardized system of industrial components to be utilized for the design and construction of custom machines. This sparked a versatile and modular structural framing system that has become an international standard for manufacturing equipment and machine solutions. item’s Machine Building Kit now encompasses over 300 extruded aluminum profiles as well as thousands of high quality components that can be used to create machine bases and frames.

One of the many competitive advantages of item’s Machine Building Kit System is reliability and compatibility with the machine base and structural framing components. When utilizing item’s extruded aluminum profiles, you are assured to be working with high quality components that are compatible across item’s Machine Building Kit System. Compared to other extruded aluminum systems, the differences in extrusion quality are obvious from a side-by-side comparison, though the advantages go far beyond aesthetics. The high straightness tolerance and precision of the item extrusions enable us to design and build custom linear actuators with over 100 feet of travel.

A myriad of custom mechanical solutions can be created using item's Machine Building Kit System components, including industrial workbenches and stairways and platforms
