Aluminum vs. Steel

An insight as to why working with our aluminum product is better than working with steel!

Corrosion Resistance

Aluminum resists rust while reducing the cost and lifetime maintenance. Ensures OSHA compliance is maintained. Steel ladders, guardrails, and platforms require galvanization or need to be made from stainless steel.

Light Weight

Steel products are harder to transport, maneuver, and cost more to ship, install, and maintain. Aluminum systems are modular, lightweight, and easy to maneuver and install with little to no additional equipment needed.

Lead Time

Steel must be fabricated to order. Lead times are typically 4-5 weeks. Our aluminum components are pre fabricated and engineered to be modular so they’re ready to ship.

On-Site Customization

Steel is difficult to cut on-site. Often, it requires a hot permit and welding. High tensile aluminum can be easily cut on-site to exact measurements.


Steel ladders generally have narrow rungs that are uncomfortable and less safe for the end user. Ergonomically designed profiled rungs for increased safety and comfort for the end user.
