Mobile Shipping Container Stairs

Since their launch in 2017 our mobile cargo staircases have become very popular with customers looking to increase storage capacity by stacking containers on top of each other. These staircases are made to order by our team of fabricators. With years of experience in this field we can offer expert advice and work with you on design if necessary to come up with a bespoke solution should the standard option not be suitable for your needs.

Just one set of these stairs allow access to upper-deck containers across an entire site, no need for expensive gantry systems or multiple access points, this mobile unit will do it all!

These stairs come with delivery and an on site instillation / build service.

Mobile Shipping Container Stairs to suit your application

The stairs can be configured either way around to work best with your setup, and can also be built with increased height if you use high cube containers. The platform is 8ft square allowing both container doors to be fully opened for ease of access without blocking the stairs. The wheels are heavy duty, with the main central wheel being pneumatic. When in use the corner supports can be lowered to make the unit very stable and reduce the risk of accidents. The staircases are best used on hard, flat surfaces such as concrete, but will still work on fine gravel or less smooth floors (you may need more than the recommended 2 people to move the staircase if the surface is rough).

As with all our fabricated products these staircases are built to order, making it possible to amend the design if required at minimal extra cost. For instance a set of gates opposite the container doors is a popular option, this allows pallets to be loaded onto the platform with a forklift, making loading goods into the container much quicker and safer.
