The principle of a walkway not requiring welding is an innovative concept that is well appreciated by clients. The costs, delivery time, lightness of the structure, and reduced assembly time represent significant benefits.

The new concept adequately meets the specifications of industry standards and market requirements and can be adapted to other requirements or needs of the client. This method ensures that the product is optimized according to industry specifications.

We can thus offer you an innovative product that can bear the same loads and maintain the same high level of quality as the conventional walkway, but at a lower sale price.

  • Reduced engineering costs using a pre-established concept
  • 36% reduction in the weight of the frame
  • Welding almost totally eliminated
  • 3 to 5 times faster delivery time than the conventional walkway
  • Quick assembly – can be assembled by unskilled personnel


Des passerelles aux possibilités multiples.

As PassTech metal walkways require little or no welding, they can quickly and easily be assembled and erected by any unskilled personnel. Such walkways provide many other benefits, proving they have the requisites to produce the desired results.
