Bedford to Spotlight ReadySeries Modular FRP Safety Structures at Offshore Technology Conference

Bedford Reinforced Plastics will showcase its ReadySeries lineup in booth 2941 at the Offshore Technology Conference. Bedford is a full-service supplier offering an extensive line of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) products and services. The Offshore Technology Conference will be held May 6 – 9, 2024, at NRG Park in Houston.

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 be combined with other products in the series. This lineup is the broadest FRP modular solution to meet access and safety structure needs of those in the global energy industry.

Unlike wood and metal, ReadySeries is fire-retardant, corrosion-resistant and non-conductive. Anti-slip coatings minimize slip and fall risks, while Bedford's proprietary ReadyShield UV coating protects against the negative effects of UV degradation and the potential for fiber bloom. The uniquely formulated compound withstands harsh weather exposure, extreme heat and humidity without changes to surface appearance or structural integrity. An ideal solution for meeting industrial safety needs quickly and affordably, ReadySeries structures are also OSHA-compliant. All ReadySeries structures are available in safety yellow coloring.

“ReadySeries modular products can help those in the global energy industry enhance productivity and efficiency while increasing safety,” said Eric Kidd, marketing director for Bedford Reinforced Plastics. “Our ReadySeries products create affordable, customized solutions by offering multiple configurations that are ready to ship and designed for easy installation.”

ReadySeries products include: 

  • 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'x3', 3'x6' and 3'x9' increments and heights of 1' 6", 2' 3", 3' 0", 3' 9", 4' 6", 5' 3" and 6' 0". Customers can also add ReadyStair, ReadyLadder or ReadyRail components to achieve their ideal configuration.
  • ReadyLadder solutions let customers quickly combine sections available in 10' and 15' increments for the desired ladder height. If needed, customers can quickly trim one section with ordinary tools for 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', 8', 15' and 20' sections, and you can also specify the length of your 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' 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.
