Fixed Ships Ladders and Step Over Units

Prevent slip, trip and fall hazards for personnel Working at Height on your roof space with specialist Ship Ladders.

Heightsafe’s Ships Ladders provide an improved means of safe access compared to normal single run ladders when roof space is limited, making the best use of every space. Commonly designed for use in the 65° to 75° range; our specialists recommend that the maximum vertical rise should not exceed 3000mm, and the width between stringers should preferably be between limits of 450mm and 550mm.

The term ‘Ships’ has derived from the extensive use of the product within the maritime industry.
