Westeel engineers optimise every catwalk system to the location’s specific weather conditions, seismic zones and site, providing a cost-effective solution. Westeel Catwalks and Goal Posts support high capacity conveyors of over 400 tonnes/hour (14,700 bushels/hour - based on wheat) with minimal use of towers, greatly reducing material and installation costs. The product meets or exceeds European and North American codes, including EN ISO 14122-1, 14122‑2, 14122-3, 14122-4 and ANSI A1264.1-1995 (R2002).

The first Westeel Catwalk system was installed in Ontario, Canada.

“The Westeel Catwalks installation went seamlessly and took half the time to install compared with other systems,” said Harold Wilcocks, manager and sales of Wilcocks Brothers of Watford Limited.

Westeel’s Ontario Distributor is also very satisfied with the product.

“We are happy to provide our customers with this well-engineered solution tailored to their specific needs,” said Pat Fischer, President & CEO of John Ernewein Limited.

“We see grain storage and handling trending towards larger and larger operations. Along with our PTM Technology line of conveyors and bucket elevators and with our extensive line of bins, our catwalks allow us to better meet those growing needs,” said Andr√© Granger, President and General Manager of Westeel.

Westeel Catwalks can be supplied with or without conveyor path; with dual walkway; with dual conveyor path; with service platforms; with a bin peak connection and roof stairs; with punched or bar grating floor and with a number of other features.
