A ladder might seem like a simple and little customised component for travelling to and from a raised surface, but in industrial situations, it takes on a far more important and complex role. The main reason for this is that when used as roof access ladders, there are different circumstances at play which dictate the ladder design.
These circumstances can include:
- How often will the ladder be used?
- Is it necessary to carry tools or equipment?
- Is the ladder to be the primary means of access to a raised surface?
- Where is the ladder to be fixed to, what is its start and end point?
