Aluminium Access Design

We can help with:

  • Specialised Access Platforms
  • Aluminium and Steel Handrails
  • Mobile Steps and Access Ladders
  • On-Site Fabrication
  • Welding Services
  • Rolling Platforms
  • Crash Decks

Our team have extensive experience in creating innovative solutions to your access problems. Whether a complete bespoke design or a variation using our standard modular AllyBeam system, our designers will work with you to create a solution that fits your brief, budget and schedule.


Typically we will produce a concept drawing using our 3d solid works modelling software. This is to enable us to present our ideas and allow the customer and his client to visualise the product. This is a useful tool to help all parties to communicate and develop the right solution.

Once approval has been gained detailed manufacturing drawings will be made, this will help with the finite detail. Many access problems are quite complex and may require some very tight tolerances, this part of the process ensures installation is as effective as possible. For complex and strategically important projects a mock up of the unit and site conditions can be made. The end customer is invited to view the mock up to gain confidence and suggestions for the final article.

Aluminium Fabrication and Manufacturing

We can help with:

  • Small batch welding
  • Steel work installation
  • On site installation
  • GRP structures
  • Aluminium fabrication
  • TiG welding in stainless
  • Steel fabrication

Ally Structures is a provider of Aluminium fabrication products and operates from our factory in Chester UK, where all our products are manufactured by experienced fabricators and coded TIG welding staff.


We principally fabricate aluminium products for access equipment typically aluminium towers machine access equipment mobile gantries. These products and all bespoke and made to order to the clients specific dimensions and requirements.


We operate to the latest standards and code of practise within ISO 3834. The highest grade of materials and procedures are used to ensure a high quality product is produced. Recently we have achieved accreditation to EN BS 1090-3 one of a few companies approved to carry out aluminium fabrication and CE mark the products used in permanent structural applications.

External verification and mock up’s are routinely used to ensure we meet our customers’ expectations. As well as aluminium fabrication we also produce GRP, Steel and stainless Steel structures.


Our flexible lean manufacturing approach accommodates small modifications to large production runs. As well as ISO we also hold CHAS which ensures safety throughout our processes. We welcome audits by our blue chip companies.

Safety & Quality

We can help with:

  • Working at height
  • Mock up design
  • Access design
  • Temporary works
  • Permanent access equipment

Working at height is a very sensitive health and safety issue and is a key consideration in our design and construction. A large percentage of accidents are the result of falls from height. All our systems are designed to ensure operators work in the most safe and efficient manner, whether during installation, in operation or when decommissioning. We operate under British, European and international standards and, where appropriate, provide a comprehensive CE package for our products. We work within audited ISO 9001 and BS EN 1090 procedures.

We are committed to ensuring our excellent health and safety record continues. All staff and management regularly undergo refresher courses to ensure the message of safety is an automatic part of our culture. Our senior staff hold Iosh and Nebosh qualifications whilst of mangers and supervisors SSTS and SSSTM certificates.


All operators hold CSCS cards and attend regular briefings to ensure their awareness and knowledge is current.
