At Amertech, we understand the importance of building and maintaining cooling tower access points that are safe and durable. Whether your facility has ladders, platforms or stairtowers, AmertechTowerServices can help design, construct, repair or replace the access points on your tower.
Because cooling towers can be large, tall structures, safety should be the number one concern when deciding which type of access to construct. Ladders are generally simple, easy structures to build and maintain, but they may not be the safest option, depending on the size of the cooling tower. Platforms allow more space for workers and inspectors, but again, depending on the tower and the needs of the facility, other options may make more sense. Finally, stairtowers offer an added level of safety, due to the fact that the stairs are “broken up” into smaller segments, preventing the threat of serious injury from falls or other accidents. When you contact AmertechTowerServices, you will be able to discuss these options with a qualified cooling tower expert and decide which choice is best suited for your facility.
Likewise, once the decision is made on the structure of the access, the type of material used for construction should also be carefully considered. Modernly, more and more facilities are choosing to go with fiberglass structures over wood, due to its ability to better withstand environmental changes. Wood is still a widely used material and remains popular due to its lower cost; however, the longterm benefits of fiberglass usually outweigh the initial increase in price.
