Bedford to Exhibit ReadySeries Modular FRP Safety Structures at WEFTEC Expo 2023

BEDFORD, PA — Bedford Reinforced Plastics — a full-service supplier offering an extensive line of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) products and services — will exhibit a variety of innovative and productive offerings at the upcoming WEFTEC 2023, October 2–4 in Chicago. Bedford will showcase its ReadySeries lineup in booth 4720 at McCormick Place’s South Hall.

ReadySeries is the first and broadest FRP modular solution to meet access and safety structure needs. An ideal solution for meeting industrial safety needs quickly and affordably, ReadySeries structures are OSHA-compliant. Unlike wood and metal, ReadySeries FRP is fire-retardant, corrosion-resistant and non-conductive. Anti-slip coatings minimize fall and slip risks. Safety yellow coloring is available in all relevant components. As this video shows, ReadySeries materials are also ideal in marine and wastewater applications.

The ReadySeries system includes industrial platforms, mezzanines, walkways, catwalks, fixed ladders, handrails, guardrails, stairs, stair towers, pedestrian bridges and more for nearly limitless configurations. Each easy-to-install modular product can be used independently or combined with other products in the series.

“WEFTEC provides firsthand experience with innovative products like Bedford’s ReadySeries lineup to water professionals from all around the world,” said Eric Kidd, marketing director for Bedford Reinforced Plastics. “We are excited to showcase Bedford FRP products that will not rot, rust, warp or corrode at the world's largest conference of water quality professionals.”

Bedford will display the following products in booth 4720, South Hall:

  • 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 3x3' 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 guardrail and handrail materials are perfect for both new structures and repairs. They are stocked in 3' sections, and customers can also specify the length of the railing run 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 stair towers adapt easily to almost any configuration. They fit in a 7-1/2' 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.
