Ladder Safety Systems

When you require access to your rooftop, but don’t have a rooftop hatch, a fixed access ladder is one of the safest ways to access your rooftop. Many regulations are in place in order to ensure that permanently fixed ladders are safe to use and to ensure they continue to be safe to use for the duration of their lifetime. Our ladders are engineered in order to support reasonable loads, while our cages are designed in order to ensure the safety of the climber, while also ensuring that an appropriate width is available for ease of movement.

Safety cages

All of our fixed access ladders are designed in order to be a permanent and safe means of rooftop access, and can if needed be built with a cage if the ladder is more than five metres above the grounds, roof or floor level. We will design your rooftop access ladder to ensure that both the ladder and the cage provide your workers with a comfortable, efficient, and safe solution for whenever rooftop access is required.

Rail car access platform | fall protection

Project Feature

This custom designed railcar access ladder was designed to allow easy access to the tops of several styles of railcars. The unit uses a ramp access to accommodate different heights of cars. It also comes with a winch-operated guardrail system that lowers down over the hatch area of the railcar.

When cleaning the tanks with the hatch open, users have access to a man-rated davit/retrieval system. This system is incorporated into the main frame and can be used for an emergency extraction and fall protection when entering the tank. The unit can be towed or moved with fork pockets.
