Access Ladders

With the advent of the new Work at Height regulations, whenever a roof or raised area requires to be accessed, this access must be undertaken in a safe and planned manner. Whatever your access needs or problems, a bespoke vertical ladder system can be designed to give you safe and secure access to any raised elevation while:

  • FULLY compliant with all Work at Height Directives
  • Designed and manufactured to meet the most recent British Standards (BS 4211:2005)
  • All vertical ladders can be constructed with either a safety cage or, where a hoop arrangement is not suitable; a fall arrest system can be fitted
  • Options can include a solid security panel fitted directly to the base of the ladder, with a padlock facility or a removable lower ladder section to prevent unauthorised access
  • All ladders are constructed, as standard, from mill finish aluminium, and comply fully with Ladder materials. Finishes can be altered to suit almost any specification with options available in steel, powder coated aluminium and glass fibre for complete corrosion resistance and no electrical conductivity
  • Whatever your vertical access requirements, we can design and manufacture a safe, strong and high quality ladder system to meet your requirements

Our access ladder kit is a safe, simple to install modular ladder system that consists of individual parts which easily bolt together to form a fully BS 4211 compliant ladder.

All the components that make up the system are designed to comply with BS 4211 and are fully hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:1999. Supplied and delivered to site in a flat pack form complete with comprehensive installation instructions, the ladders are easy to install and adapt using the minimum of tools.
The convenience of using a modular system eliminates the need for site specific construction drawings and can speed up the process from specification through to installation.

All ladder components are hot dip galvanised to BS EN 1461:1999 and all fixings are stainless steel
