Application

Create access externally onto a roof and internally to a roof hatch, or to items of plant such as a silo or tank without compromising the health and safety of the worker.

Description

A permanently-fixed mill or powder-coated finished aluminium companionway/ ships ladder system, supplied to create access both externally and internally depending on required use. The system has been designed to provide safe access up to three metres in a single flight, in accordance with BS 4211. Larger sizes are also available on request.


Investment in design and manufacturing technology has allowed for the system to be designed in accordance with BS 4211 and manufactured in accordance with BS EN ISO 3834-2 and BS EN 1090-1 + A1. This has produces an accurately manufactured product that is both easy to specify and install, meeting the challenges faces when creating safe access at height.


The companionway ladder is preferable to a vertical ladder as it comprises a series of treads, with handrail adjacent rather than rungs and as such is considered easier to ascend and descend.
