Telescopic Offshore Gangway in Aluminium

Model 15m

Telescopic gangway made of aluminium and suitable for marine use like an offshore plant

The gangway in this example can rotate vertically and horizontally and it has self-aligning treads.

A detailed design of the mechanism of sliding together with a structural analysis performed using FEM tools, it gives as result a very compact and lightweight gangway.
