For Inspection, Exploration, Rescue or Escape Applications
These ladders are designed for use in difficult places when a rigid ladder would be impractical. Where access has been by means of a rope or free climbing, the use of a wire rope ladder will greatly increase safety. Safety can be increased further by use of a safety line and / or a karabiner (snap hook) with which the climber can attach himself to the ladder when resting.
The wire rope is galvanized therefore corrosion is not a problem in normal environments. Occasional wetting with fresh water will do no harm. For harsh environments such as marine usage, special materials can be used.
The rungs are swaged directly to the wire. This provides a very reliable fastening. For example even after a rung is forced down the wire by a sudden overload (say a falling rock) it will still hold a man’s weight.
Aluminium ladders are light and easy to transport and are widely used in construction industries because of their light weight and durability.
The narrow width of the ladder (200mm) actually makes it easier to climb. It enables the climber to keep their body close to the ladder in a near upright position, thus minimizing strain on the arms.
Galvanized cable 4mm with aluminium rungs 20mm x 200mm. Each ladder comes with thimbles at both ends swagged with Hydraulic press.
Wire rope ladders come in 6, 9, 15, 20, 25 and 30 metre lengths.
Aluminium medium weight ladders have a wider step than the lightweight ladders and are slightly stronger.
Both ends of the ladders are fitted with thimbles for easy erecting.
