Types of Ladders
There are different types of ladders suitable for different spaces and industrial applications. These include:
Standard Fixed Ladder – This is your standard rung ladder, usually used to access roofs and safety systems in buildings, such as emergency exits. They are very flexible and can be built to meet the requirements of any space.
Offset Stair Ladder – Offset stair ladders have steps rather than rungs, and are offset at a sharp angle. They often have hand railings as the steps can be too wide to grasp comfortably.
Ladder With Manhole Cage – Manhole cages are an effective safety feature for ladders, particularly those that reach greater heights.
Safety Rolling Ladders – Rolling ladders are wide, angled step ladders with steps ranging from two to a dozen. They are sturdy and have many uses in industrial environments such as warehouses, storerooms, showrooms and stock floors.
Dock Ladders – Dock ladders have many industrial marine applications. They are treated to be durable and corrosion-resistant.
Why Choose Steel?
Strength – Steel has extremely high tensile strength and is made from tough elements that discourage dislocation at an atomic level. You can rely on the strength of steel for a lifetime, no matter what conditions it is subjected to.
Sustainability – Steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials, with a global recycling rate of over 90%. It can be melted down and re-fabricated an infinite amount of times without losing its structural integrity and is therefore highly sustainable.
Durability – Steel won’t rot, it isn’t combustible, and bugs have no appetite for it. Regardless of whether your ladder resides outdoors or in a volatile industrial environment it in an excellent choice. High heat, extreme cold, gale force winds or torrential rain, you can always count on steel.
