Description Icon Description

Suitable for industrial and commercial environments, Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) fixed access ladder systems are designed to comply to the relevant standards and provide a safe, maintenance-free and cost-effective alternative to metal or wooden structures.

GRP is perfectly suited to interior, exterior and aggressive environments where industrial chemicals or acid/salt air may quickly degrade other structures. Structures made from composite materials have shown proven in-service performance for 40+ years.

Composite fixed access ladders are available in the following configurations:

1. Internal Access Ladders e.g. for underground inspection chambers (manholes)

Designed to BS 4211:2005 including:

  • Straight ladder with rungs at 250 mm c/c spacing
  • Wall brackets designed for the manhole curvature

2. External Access Ladders e.g. for above ground elevated structures

Designed to BS EN ISO 14122-4:2004 including a combination of any of the following elements:

  • Straight ladder
  • Safety cage
  • Safety gate
  • Landing platform
  • Wall/floor fixings/supports

Structural components are available in steel grey or high visibility safety yellow and provide all the advantages of light weight, high strength and durability, coupled with a corrosion resistant, non conductive, fire retardant and maintenance free life.

Through-colour construction and an optional extra-durable polyurethane surface coating for exterior installations will provide an enduring, smart appearance that is highly cost-effective when compared to stainless or galvanised steel/iron.

Fixed access ladders provide for worker safety in a wide variety of locations in all types of workplace e.g. manufacturing, power generation, water treatment works, petrochemical facilities, marine applications, railways, around machinery etc.

The relatively light weight of the product makes transport, handling & installation far easier than metallic products. Structures may be fully or partially assembled prior to delivery for immediate installation.
