Bedford to Showcase ReadySeries Modular FRP Safety Structures at Offshore Technology Conference 2023

BEDFORD, PA (April 20, 2023) — Bedford Reinforced Plastics will showcase its ReadySeries lineup in Booth 4161 at the Offshore Technology Conference trade show May 1–4, 2023, at NRG Park in Houston, Texas. Bedford is a full-service supplier that offers an extensive line of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) products and services.

The ReadySeries lineup is a broad FRP modular solution that helps meet access and safety structure needs — and fast. The ReadySeries system includes industrial platforms, mezzanines, walkways, catwalks, fixed ladders, handrails, guardrails, stairs, stair towers and more. Each easy-to-install modular product can be used independently or can be combined with other products in the series for entirely new configurations.

An ideal solution for meeting industrial safety needs quickly and affordably, ReadySeries structures are OSHA-compliant. ReadySeries FRP is often compared to wood or metal, but it quickly sets itself apart. Unlike the other types of building materials, it’s fire-retardant, corrosion-resistant and non-conductive. Anti-slip coatings minimize fall and slip risks, too, while a safety yellow coloring option increases visibility. Bedford ReadySeries products can be completely customized with many different features to fit customers’ specific needs.

“Bedford is committed to maximizing safety and uptime with products that are ready for action,” said Eric Kidd, marketing director for Bedford Reinforced Plastics. “We’re excited to connect with attendees at the OTC show and share how these products can transform their facilities.”

ReadySeries products highlighted at the Offshore Technology Conference include:

ReadyPlatform at a worksite

ReadyPlatform solutions are ideal for industrial access platforms, walkways, mezzanines and catwalk applications that don’t require a custom build. ReadyPlatform materials are available in 3’ by 3' increments, and heights of 1-1/2', 3', 4-1/2' and 6'. Customers can also add ReadyStair, ReadyLadder or ReadyRail components to get their ideal configuration.

ReadyLadder solutions let customers quickly combine sections available in 10' and 15' increments to get the desired ladder height. If needed, customers can quickly trim one section with ordinary tools to get an exact fit or add a walk-through for a complete system.

ReadyRail being used at a job site

ReadyRail guardrail and handrail materials are perfect for both new structures and repairs. They are stocked in 3' sections that bolt together with standard tools — no welding or hot permits are needed. Custom railing run lengths can also be specified and Bedford will package all components into a handy kit. Materials can be used on their own or to complement ReadyPlatform products for a complete safety solution.

ReadyStair at a job site with a man using the stairs to get to the bottom

ReadyStair pre-engineered stairs and stair towers adapt easily to almost any configuration. They fit in a 7' 6" by 12' nominal footprint, rising in 6' increments between landings. When needed, a short stretch of up or down stairs is provided for the final transition at the top. ReadyStair sections are also used in conjunction with ReadyPlatform materials to meet any configuration needed.
