Available in stainless steel or carbon steel materials
Sill steps are used along the outside of railcars for entering the car where a platform is absent. They can be made from carbon steel or from stainless steel. They can be located in the back or on the front sides of a railcar. KDK can produce sill steps to customer specifications and to common railroad standards. KDK has tooling for standard configurations currently used in the railcar industry. Anti-skid patterns are located on each step. The sill step assembly consists of a formed bar, ladder steps, and rivets securing the assembly. Sill steps are then typically riveted or screwed to the surface of the railcar. Standards in producing handholds can be found at the American Association of Railroads website. (www.aaor.org) Sill steps can be used for passenger and industrial railcars. All sill steps are currently manufactured in the U.S. and material certifications for the steel used is available on request.
