Access solutions for commercial vehicles and buses

Maintenance steps and assembly platforms

Mobile or stationary access systems for maintenance work on lorries, buses, trailers and other commercial vehicles.

Commercial vehicles such as lorries, trailers and buses are time- and cost-intensive to service and maintain. It is therefore advantageous to use access solutions that can make performing any necessary maintenance and repair work as effortless as possible.

ZARGES offers a wide range of access solutions for vehicle production and maintenance. These solutions not only help minimise downtime but also fulfil the highest level of requirements in terms of efficiency and work safety.

Our standard products (such as work platforms and access steps with platform) are the perfect tools for accessing vehicles quickly and flexibly. Furthermore, we can customise maintenance platforms and access stands for lorries and buses to suit your exact specifications.

Maintenance steps with platform for commercial vehicles

ZARGES offers you the exact solution you need: you can either use our online configurator to put together a solution yourself, or have us tailor one to your exact requirements. All our solutions are certified by TÜV and designed to comply with relevant industry standards (e.g. EN 14122).

Your benefits:

  • Individually customisable platform, ranging from 600 x 600 to 1,000 x 3,000 mm
  • Individually configurable steps, with an inclination of 45° or 60°
  • Fall protection thanks to handrails, pole barriers and swing doors.
  • Bumpers and integrated brakes


Scaffold units for assembly of commercial vehicles

ZARGES folding scaffold units are ideal for performing assembly work on camper vans, special-purpose vehicles, lorries and other similar vehicles. They are easy to set up and extremely flexible thanks to their built-in castors, therefore allowing them to be used in a wide range of applications.

Your benefits:

  • Working heights ranging from 4.55 to 9.85 metres
  • Folds to a highly compact size for storage and transport
  • Large work platform
  • Easy to set up and move around

Front access platforms for lorries, buses and rescue vehicles

Stationary or mobile: front access platforms allow users to perform all kinds of work on the front of trucks and other large vehicles in a safe and efficient manner. The platforms are height-adjustable and equipped with built-in bumpers to prevent scratches and damage to vehicles. All-round railing and slide-out panels on the platform ensure users can work safely.

Your benefits:

  • Slide-out panel system for adapting to a vehicle's contour
  • Heavy-duty castors with easy-running wheels and height adjustment
  • Adjustable height for users to work ergonomically
  • Slip-resistant platform surface
  • Height-adjustable access steps

Roof access platform for maintenance and repair of large vehicles

Does working at great heights necessarily mean high risk? Not when you are using ZARGES roof access platforms. The cleverly designed safety features on the roof access platforms give users the peace of mind to concentrate fully on their core tasks. The platforms can be perfectly adapted to each vehicle, thus allowing maintenance and repair work to be carried out on a vehicle's roof with speed and efficiency.

Your benefits:

  • Safe to use thanks to all-round railings and slide-out panels for bridging the gap between the vehicle and platform
  • Adjustable height
  • Stable and easy to manoeuvre thanks to heavy-duty three-wheel  castors
  • Enclosed work area prevents tools and materials falling off the platform
  • The platform can be fitted with either a staircase or a fixed ladder.

Roof access stands for regular servicing and maintenance

ZARGES stationary roof access stands are used by large maintenance companies, public transport operators and workshops for servicing and maintaining buses, lorries and trucks. These long access stands allow users to easily access the entire length of a vehicle. Users no longer have to climb up and down frequently to reposition their access equipment, thus reducing the amount of time it takes to complete any repair, servicing or maintenance work.

Your benefits:

  • A wide range of accessories, expansion options and modules, such as electrical installations, compressed air supply, cranes mounted on the ceiling or raised on stands, sensors and control systems
  • Fixed or adjustable height
  • Can be suspended from the ceiling or raised on stands
  • Modular and versatile fall protection systems
  • Can be fitted with staircases (with various angles of inclination) or fixed or removable ladders

Tanker ladder

Highly mobile with adjustable height: the ZARGES tanker ladder provides a safe and easy way of accessing tankers and tank trailers. It allows users to safely operate, inspect, clean and maintain a tank. In addition, the height of the tanker ladder can be easily adjusted while its easy-running castors make moving it completely effortless. Double-sided handrails and a large safety cage further enhance safety.

Your benefits:

  • 30 mm deep rungs
  • Easy height adjustment
  • Secure handgrip and footing
  • Height can be adjusted from 2,770 to 4,100 mm

De-icing platform for lorries, trailers and buses

Drivers are responsible for ensuring the safety of their vehicles as well as minimising risk to other road users. Lorries and buses must always be free of ice slabs, snow and dirt before they are driven off. This is because such ice slabs may fall off a moving lorry or bus and endanger other vehicles and road users. ZARGES de-icing platform is the optimal access equipment for removing ice and dirt quickly from lorries, trailers and buses.

Your benefits:

  • Long modular platform
  • Open-grid steel surface with R12 slip-resistance
  • Wide treads that ensures the platform is safe to access even in winter
  • Optimal platform height for users to work ergonomically

Access steps for lorries and truck trailers

Your benefits:

  • Safe to use thanks to 225 mm deep treads and removable railings
  • Independently adjustable legs for access heights ranging from 1,170 to 1,400 mm
