Wire Rope Ladders

Wire Rope Ladders

These ladders are designed for use in difficult places when a rigid ladder would be impractical. Where access has been by means of a rope or free climbing, the use of a wire rope ladder will greatly increase safety. Safety can be increased further by use of a safety line and / or a karabiner (snap hook) with which the climber can attach himself to the ladder when resting.

They come in standard lengths of 6m, 9m and 15m. 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 whatever.

The wire rope is galvanised therefore corrosion is not a problem in normal environments. Occasional wetting with fresh water will do no harm. For harsh environments such as marine usage, special materials can be used.

The narrow width of the ladder of 150mm is far from being a disadvantage and 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. For example even after a rung is forced down the wire by a sudden overload (say a falling rock) it will still hold a man’s weight.
