Press Release – GX Loading Gangway

SafeRack introduces the GX loading gangway, the world’s most ergonomically advanced loading gangway for truck and railcar.

Andrews, South Carolina, March 10, 2020 — SafeRack, the global leader in industrial bulk loading safety equipment just announced the production of their most ergonomically advanced gangway. The new GX Gangway is the next generation of North America’s best selling loading access G4 gangway for truck and railcar loading operations. Introduced in 2009, SafeRack’s flagship G4 gangway was unlike anything else on the market, addressing safety issues presented by other gangways. The new GX goes far beyond, incorporating the patent-pending Retractalok system. This revolutionary technology assists the operator in lifting the gangway almost effortlessly with instant positive locking, which enhances operator safety while on top of the vehicle.

With worldwide installations, SafeRack consistently offers the highest quality fall protection safety equipment across all industries. Rob Honeycutt, co-founder, and CEO of SafeRack explains the evolution of the GX, “With repetitive strain injuries topping the list of liabilities reported by employers across the globe, we knew the GX would be the ergonomic solution to fill the gap.” The patented unibody structure optimizes the longevity of the gangway components so customers can expect the GX to outlast anything else on the market. “We know how important it is to ensure workers get home safe every night. Our innovative products are designed with their safety and your productivity in mind,” says Honeycutt.

The new GX gangway also features several patent-pending design improvements to increase the product’s durability and longevity. “Anytime we can reduce the number of welds required, we can count on a longer-lasting product. We also guarantee the GX will require less maintenance over the lifetime of the product,” explains Honeycutt.
