(Technical Specifications available on request)
The GRP Cat Ladder is designed to provide permanent access with safety even in the most difficult environmental conditions.
It is a direct replacement or an alternative to conventional steel ladders and the competitive price extends the potential use outside of corrosive areas.
The basic ladder consists of GRP stringers, rungs and a safety cage.
The side member stringers are constructed from a GRP channel section which offers increased lateral stiffness over a flat profile.
The rung is a flat topped GRP "D" shaped section, deeply ribbed to provide a firm foot grip.
If required a non-slip coating can be applied to the rung upper surface to provide even better grip.
The rung/stringer connection is made with the use of a tapered DMC moulded plug system with high strength P U adhesive and mechanical fasteners (if required).
The GRP ladders are tailor made for each application to ensure straight forward installation. Where necessary, manufacturing drawings with erection marks will be submitted for customer approval.
The maximum length of a ladder supplied as a single section is 6m; however, splice sections are available for joining sections to form longer ladders. Note that a rest platform should be provided at intervals not exceeding 9m or as specified by customer. GRP structures for these landings are available.
Whenever a ladder is used more than 2.3m above ground level or a platform, a safety cage should be fitted.
GRP safety cages comprises of GRP moulded hoops with GRP channel vertical straps and are assembled and attached to the ladders using stainless steel 316 fasteners. Cages are generally dispatched 'piece small' in order to reduce shipping volumes.
