Wire Rope Ladders

Wire rope ladders are designed for:
*   Inspection – tree surgery, tanks
*   Exploration – cave
*   Rescue & Escape – mines, cliffs, sewers, silos

In places where access has been by means of a rope or free climbing, the use of a wire rope ladder will greatly increase safety. The ladders are designed for use in difficult places where a rigid ladder would be impractical. The rope ladder is galvanised and the rungs are made of aluminium alloy. Therefore corrosion is not a problem in normal environments. For harsh environments, such as marine, special materials can be used.

LIGHT WEIGHT ALUMINIUM – Both ends of the ladders are fitted with thimbles. The ladder maybe supplied with a “trace”.  This is a 2.5m length of wire also fitted with “C” clips and may be used for attaching the ladder to a tree, post or other structure. The trace is additional charge.
