SL Access Ladders

Surespan ladders are designed specifically for use where safe, vertical access is required. The standard designs of the ladder together with the range of accessories give specifiers flexibility and choice. All ladders and fire escapes comply with relevant building regulations or safety standards.

Stringers are made from size 8 structural tube (48.3 o/d) set 400mm apart with Surespan Safegrip serrated rungs at 250mm centres. Cage is made from 50mm x 5mm flat hoops set at a maximum 900mm centres with 6 no. vertical straps with caged nuts. Cage will be extended from 2.4m from the ground level. Stays will be positioned at a maximum of 2400mm centres.

Surespan access ladders can be powder coated to match the façade of the building.
