Frequently asked

What is a fixed vertical ladder?

A fixed vertical ladder is a permanently fixed access structure for means of access and egress from buildings, machinery, roof tops and other structures such as silos and mezzanine floors.

Why do I need a fixed ladder?

Fixed ladders are needed for access, maintenance and inspection, and fire escape. 

What material do I choose?

The material should be considered before install. Aluminium is generally used for indoor applications as is lightweight and easier to install. On the other hand, galvanised steel is considered more robust and weather proof, so is the most common selection for outdoor installations.

What standards do your fixed ladders conform to?

Our systems conform to numerous standards:

EN14122-4 - Permanent means of access to machinery

DIN14094-1 - Emergency escape ladders

DIN18799-1 - Fixed Ladder for construction works
