Rope ladders can be used for a variety of
different applications, from residential to
commercial. Since they are lightweight and
take up very little space, they can be transported in a small storage
area, and easy to set up. They are also used for many training ground
obstacle courses, because they can help develop hand eye coordination and endurance skills. Naval ships have been using them
for years as a way to rescue people who have gone
One of the best uses for a rope ladder is for
emergency situations. If you live on the upper floors of an apartment
building, or have a bedroom on the second floor of a house, they can be
used as a means of escape during a fire. They can be stored away until
used, and are easy to set up.
Made to order, Rope Ladders are very durable and
hard wearing and will last for many years.
Wire Rope Ladders
They come in standard lengths 6m, 9m or 15m. Non standard
lengths can be made to order. Both ends of the ladders are fitted with 'C' clips so that they can be easily joined to make any required length. Each
ladder is normally supplied with a 'Trace.' This is 2.5m length of wire also fitted with 'C' clips and
may be used for attaching the ladder to a tree, post or structure.
The wire rope is galvanised and the rungs are of aluminium alloy
therefore corrosion is not a problem in normal environments. Occasional wetting with fresh water will
do the ladder no harm. For marine useage or corrosive environments, the ladders can be made from
stainless steel on order.
The narrow width of the ladder (150mm) actually makes it easier to
climb. It enables the climber to keep their body close to the ladder in a near upright position, thus
minimising strain on the arms.
The rungs are swaged directly to the wire. This provides a
very reliable fastening.
