“It’s always been entirely about the people. We are fortunate to have the most talented group of professionals. The relatively antiquated processes of the Industrial Construction market creates an environment rich with improvement opportunities. What’s most important to me is that we remain easy to work with and are solutions oriented. As long as we operate that way and have some fun along the way, we’ll continue to find ways to improve for our customers.”

Legacy Steel broke ground in June of 2022 as a commitment from parent, Legacy Platform, to re-invest in its business. Legacy Steel is a new state-of-the-art steel fabrication facility located in Amherst, WI that specializes in custom steel fabrication. With the opening of our own fabrication facility, Legacy can bolster its in-house capabilities providing customers with a better way of bringing their custom steel projects to life. The addition allows for faster turnaround times, and greater flexibility offerings.  

The main difference between an equipment platform and a mezzanine is whether the structure is considered a part of the building or not. The International Building Code defines a mezzanine in section 505.2 as a portion of the story below. An equipment platform is not considered a portion of the floor below.

The dead load, usually 10-15psf (pounds per square foot), consists of all building material (framing, decking, wood, etc.) used in construction of the platform. The live load consists of the load produced by the use and occupancy of the platform, typically 125psf platforms. 

There are many differences between these two stairs, a few of the most notable differences are as follows: 1- Width: IBC requires a minimum clear width of 44″ with an exception for a minimum 36″ wide stair where OSHA requires a minimum 22″ clear width. 2- Riser/tread combinations: IBC 7″/11″; OSHA requires combinations that yield a stair angle between 30 and 50 degrees from the horizontal with a maximum riser height of 9.5″ and a minimum tread depth of 9.5″. 3- Closed vs. Open risers: IBC requires closed risers (with an exception for a 4″ maximum opening in certain cases) while OSHA allows open risers

Guardrail is a 42″ high safety barrier with kickplate, installed at the edge of raised surfaces. Handrail is a graspable, horizontal or sloping rail, intended for guidance or support. Handrail is typically found on stairways and stair landings in combination with guardrail. These terms are often, mistakenly, used interchangeably.

A stringer (or girder) is a primary beam that supports one or more joists. Joist are secondary members used to infill between stringers.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that all fixed ladders taller than 20 feet must have a cage.
