Access Platforms & Ship Gangways
Custom Made Access Platforms
& Ship Gangways
Mackay Aluminium Industries fabricates high-quality aluminium access platforms and gangways for a number of applications.
Gangways and access platforms are essential parts of work landscapes, especially if you work in an industrial marine setting.
It is absolutely essential that they are safe and durable since they carry not only equipment but also people, either disembarking over water or moving around a factory floor, job sites, or any other areas.
At Mackay Aluminium Industries, we can design, fabricate, install, repair, and maintain a wide range of gangways and access platforms that are custom made to suit your specific application.
We will work with you to assess your specific access needs and even consult with engineers, dockside personnel, and even ship crew members to achieve the best possible solution for you.

Why You Need Access Platforms & Gangways
- Access platforms
These are essential for workers who need to work at various heights - such as in construction, hangar/aeroplane maintenance, cleaning and painting services, or even in warehouses.
They come in many forms and are vital to employees working in such industries because a well-built, solid and steady access platform can keep workers safe and confident; they can concentrate on their jobs even if it is high-up and reduce workplace injuries and damaged equipment or inventory.
One of the most common uses of our platforms is the maintenance of heavy earthmoving equipment by companies including BMA and Hastings Deering. Their mechanics use our platforms to access the engines to keep their trucks and other equipment in good condition.
All of our platforms and steps are designed to meet Australian Standards and each are designed to be maneuverable and durable.
Each design is certified by an engineer to determine the required load rating. The load rating is essential to ensure that the platform is strong enough to handle whatever it is carrying to avoid unnecessary work-related accidents.
Our team at Mackay Aluminium Industries also fabricates top-quality aluminium ship gangways up to 15m long.
We can customise a gangway to suit your specific application.
Gangways help people embark and disembark from marine vessels - usually, the bigger ships or boats that are not level with the dock. They can also be used for loading and unloading cargo.
We produce gangways for both commercial, industrial and even residential applications. We only use superior, marine-grade, corrosion-resistant aluminium to ensure that they last a long time, especially when exposed to the elements and saltwater.
Our team uses a customised curved step tread which allows you to safely walk on steps at different angles depending on tide and ship height.
All of our gangways are certified to all the relevant Australian Standards and load ratings. We consult with ship and dockyard crews and workers and take into consideration shipboard protocols, and the behaviour of the tides in the particular area where the gangway will be installed.
