De-icing systems for commercial vehicles

Snow and ice loads on the roofs or trucks, buses and other commercial vehicles represent dangers that must be taken seriously and can lead to damage and accidents on the road.

Good to know

The German Road Traffic Act (Section 1 Para. 2) requires of all drivers that no other road user may be injured or put in danger. It is an offence if a vehicle loses ice or snow. If people are injured or even fatally injured: negligent physical injury or negligent homicide.

Drivers therefore need to keep their vehicles free from snow and ice.

Now reliably and quickly de-ice your vehicles with weather-resistant de-icing systems: a stairway provides access to the walkway or working platform from where the roof of the vehicles can be accessibly and conveniently freed of its wintry load – ideal for truck stops, service stations and freight forwarders.

De-icing systems are available as mobile and stationary models and improve safety on the road and health and safety at work. The innovative modular design of the stationary de-icing systems means that they can be easily, simply and cost-effectively assembled to your required length.

Mobile scaffolding can be used completely independently of the location and can also be transported on the road on trucks. Non-slip step and platform surfaces ensure safe access in ice, snow and rain. Railings, handrails and safety doors are further features of this maintenance-free equipment.

All GÜNZBURGER STEIGTECHNIK de-icing systems are “Made in Germany”.

Snow and ice on the roofs of trucks and other commercial vehicles is dangerous: vehicles can be quickly and reliably freed of snow and ice with stationary de-icing systems. For greater safety on the road.

Stationary de-icing system

Features

  • For the fast and reliable removal of ice and snow loads from trucks and commercial vehicles. Also ideal for repairs to truck tarpaulins and box bodies
  • Maintenance-free design: corrosion-resistant aluminium profiles and stainless steel connectors for stationary installation
  • Individual total lengths and configurations are possible thanks to its efficient modular design
  • Non-slip steel grating (R 12) step and platform surfaces for all weather conditions. The perforated pattern also prevents water pooling and the accumulation of dirt and snow
  • Access to the walkway is conveniently up 45° stairs with handrails on both sides and a self-closing safety door
  • Railings on both sides with toe and knee board for excellent safety at work (Height: 1,100 mm)
  • Simple assembly thanks to delivery in pre-assembled component groups including installation instructions
  • The design complies with DIN EN ISO 14122-2 and -3
  • Maximum load: 1.5 kN / m², step load 150 kg, total load 300 kg
