Stiffa® Vertical ladders are suitable for a maximum rise of 10 metres in a single run or higher with intermediate landings allowing the user to rest safely during the climb, they should only be used by authorised competent persons.
The Stiffa® ladder has 32mm diameter ribbed rungs providing good grip and comfortable handhold.
Unlike most ladders on the market the Stiffa® ladder is 600mm wide providing ample room for a comfortable climb whilst the U-shaped safety cage protects the user from falling backwards.
These ladders have the option of an integrated Landing to the upper level guiding the user safely away from the roof edge and protecting persons on the upper level from accidentally falling down the ladder. A one-way self-closing Gate is available.
Stiffa® Ships ladders, also known as a Companionway ladder, should be considered where there is insufficient space for a standard stair. It is more comfortable to climb than a vertical ladder but the rise is limited to 3 metres.
Ships ladders have steps instead of rungs and low-level handrails to both sides, the recommended pitch is between 60 & 75 dgerees.
Stiffa® Ships ladders are available in four variants 60, 65, 70 and 75 degrees depending on the space available.
Ships ladders may be supplied with an integrated Landing to the upper level, this guides the user safely away from the roof edge and protects persons on the upper level from accidentally falling down the ladder. An optional one-way self-closing Gate is available.
