Catwalk Systems

Catwalk warehouse storage is an efficient way to manage warehouse inventory. A catwalk system allows operators to retrieve items safely from high shelves or load boxes down onto pallets. Using pneumatic equipment or forklift trucks eliminates the need for ladders. They also provide an efficient way to organize products. There is no lost available space or interruption of operations with their open design. Catwalks can be an excellent solution for your material handling and industrial needs.

What is a Catwalk System? ​

Catwalk systems are elevated walkways that are commonly used in industrial settings. They consist of a series of metal beams supported by posts or columns. They typically have a handrail or other safety barrier to keep employees fully protected and prevent falls.
Catwalks are often used to provide access to hard-to-reach areas, such as ceilings or rafters, and they can also be used to convey materials from one point to another. In some cases, catwalks may also be equipped with conveyor systems or other types of equipment to facilitate the movement of materials.

What Are Catwalks made of?

Catwalk systems are made of various materials, depending on the application. For example, systems used in warehouses and factories are often made of steel or aluminum. Steel catwalk systems provide a durable surface that can support heavy loads. In contrast, systems used in retail stores and office buildings are often made of lighter-weight materials such as wood or plastic to reduce noise and provide a more comfortable walking surface.
No matter what material is used, all catwalk systems share one common purpose: to provide workers with a safe and efficient way to move around the workplace and provide a way to access previously unused overhead space.

How wide does a catwalk need to be?

Catwalk systems come in various widths, from 24 inches to 48 inches which exceed OSHA standards. OSHA requires catwalk systems to be at least 18 inches wide to provide maximum access and safety for employees.
The width you need depends on several factors, including the number of people using the catwalk and the type of materials you’ll be transporting. If you carry heavy loads or large items, you’ll need a wider catwalk, so there’s less chance of tipping over. You also need to consider the amount of space you have available. A wider catwalk takes up more space, so if you’re working in a tight area, you may need to choose a narrower option. Ultimately, the best way to determine the right width for your needs is to consult with our professionals and get one custom designed.
