VECTAWAY® rooftop crossover stairs are intended to provide safe and convenient access over obstacles located in building roofs such as wall parapets, expansion gaps, pipes, etc. Our VECTAWAY® aluminium rooftop crossover stairs are certified in accordance with EN 14122-2. Non-slip rungs ensure maximum safety for roof users.
Compared to standard steel crossover stairs existing on the market, our VECTAWAY® aluminium ladders have many advantages. Above all:
1/ lower installation cost: VECTAWAY® aluminium rooftop crossover stairs installation takes less than 10 minutes (2 people). Because our crossover stairs are designed as a modular structure consisting of 7 elements, the assembly of them is quite simple. Crossover stairs assembling consist of joining ready-made elements and screwing them together in accordance with the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Installation takes less than 10 minutes (2 people). The handrail, the knee-rail and the toe board on both sides are delivered already welded from the factory.
2/ VECTAWAY® crossover ladders are made of aluminium, which guarantees a long service life without any special maintenance (lifetime of more than 30 years). It is a one-time investment. 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.
3/ Unlike heavy steel platforms, our aluminium rooftop crossover stairs are a lightweight device that does not represent any weight on the roof (e.g. a 3×3 step platform – for parapet height up to 756mm – Total length = 2558mm WEIGHS ONLY 168kg!!!!!!!). This is a very significant difference for many roofs.
4/ solution avoids any drilling into the roof membrane. With 25 kg plastic counterweights (2 units x 12.5 Kg per post) attached to the device arms, the system is stable and able to transfer the forces specified in the legal provisions. Plastic counterweights and rubber pads guarantees complete watertightness of the roof. Other fixings are also available. E.g. for metal deck roofs
