Axess – Ladder System

Guardrail’s 'Axess' vertical permanent ladder system is a safe, simple modular design offering individual parts which bolt together to form a complete ladder. Parts are usually kept ex-stock for quick delivery or can be supplied as a complete ladder once the floor-to-floor dimension is given. This system tries to eliminate the need for expensive site surveys and the preparation of detail drawings which adds to delivery time.

Health and Safety:

The design and production of Axess components is in accordance with relevant British Standards and Euronorms for the health and safety conscious.


Axess is usually available 'off the shelf' and is flexible enough to solve the majority of vertical access problems.

Easy to install:

Axess is straightforward to bolt together/ install on site and is usually supplied in 'flat-pack' form for ease of handling, storage and transportation.
