Access Ladders

GRP Fixed Access Ladders

At Step on Safety, we offer fully-bespoke GRP fixed Access Ladders, from concept to installation. Our range of bespoke Access Ladders includes Ships Ladders and Cat Ladders. Manufactured from pultruded structural sections which, when compared weight-for-weight, are far stronger than their metal counterparts.

  • Manufactured from premium grade GRP
  • Anti-slip surface underfoot
  • Built in accordance with BS 4211 and BS 5395
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Ideal for use in corrosive or industrial environments
  • Resistant to corrosion, non-conductive and non-magnetic

GRP Cat Ladders

Our fixed GRP Cat Ladders are constructed using GRP Box Profile and a grooved pultruded profile for the rungs. Designed to be fixed vertically to a wall or platform, we add safety hoops if the height is more than 2.5m. We can also extend the ladder beyond the upper floor and provide a non-slip landing to make it easier and safety to climb on and off and to highlight the presence of the ladder itself. Self-closing Safety Gates help prevent trips and falls. If the ladder is going up through a hatch in the floor, our GRP Manhole Covers are available in Open Mesh Grating or with solid covers and fall-arrest covers. Suitable for emergency exits inside and out, roof access and harbour walls. If you need to restrict access we can add a lockable ladder guard to the lower rungs.

Existing ladders can be made safer by adding GRP Ladder Rung Covers.

GRP Ships Ladders

A GRP Ships Ladder (also known as a companionway ladder) is a great option if you don’t have space for a staircase but a vertical Cat Ladder isn’t suitable. Ship ladders are a hybrid. Part stair and part ladder, they can make vertical circulation much more comfortable in mechanical or service spaces. Ships Ladders include wider anti-slip treads and handrail on one or both sides. For temporary access take a look at out Pit Ladders.
