Fixed access ladders uses
Fixed access ladders VECTALADDER® are permanently attached to structural elements of buildings as well as to machines and industrial devices. A wide range of fixings and the lightness of the ladder itself allow installation on metal decks or sandwich panels’ walls. The minimum metal thickness required is 0.63mm. Our VECTALADDER® fixed access ladders fit with our safety systems, such as: roof railings or technical platforms.
Our ladders are made of aluminium and the finish is at an excellent level. The standard raw aluminium finish ensures a C3 corrosion category. Other finishes on request, such as anodized aluminium, thermal varnishing and matched to any RAL colour. Thermal varnishing (powder coating) is a process that ensures adequate protection of the aluminium railings coating. This is recommended by the manufacturer when the ladder is installed in highly corrosive environments, exposed to chemicals, polluted areas or near the sea.
Because our fixed access ladders are designed as a modular structure, the assembly of them is quite simple. Ladder assembling consist of joining ready-made elements and screwing them together in accordance with the instructions provided by the manufacturer. The scope of delivery includes all screws and steel fixings depending on the characteristics of the support.
