Q: How are vertical access ladders fixed and does this impact the weatherproofing of my building?

Q: How are vertical access ladders protected from the outside elements?
A: Heightsafe’s systems are manufactured with lightweight, anti-corrosion galvanised steel and are warrantied for 20 years from the date of install. Annual testing and inspection of the system will ensure that material condition is monitored and recorded for a detailed log, providing invaluable information for all users.
Q: Can vertical access ladders be securely protected from unauthorised access?
A: Yes, whether you are looking to prevent security breaches, vandalism or unauthorised access, Heightsafe’s ladders can have a solid security panel, or a removable lower ladder section fitted directly to the base of the ladder.
