Wire Rope Ladder

Wire Rope Ladders are designed for use in difficult places when a rigid ladder would be impractical.

Our ladders are used by emergency services, mining, silo use, tree felling, caving and the rock climbing community. Where access has been by means of a rope or free climbing, the use of a wire rope ladder will greatly increase safety.

All ladders are made in Australia and have been certified for a Safe Working Load of 130kg.  Each ladder comes with a tag that includes a serial number, manufacturer’s identification, date of manufacture and safety maintenance check.

The ladders have rigid rungs (aluminium or stainless steel) and flexible sides, that are made from wire rope. The advantage of this is that it allows the ladders to be suspended from a fixed point rather than like a conventional ladder.

Our ladders can be rolled up for easy transport and storage, weigh much less than a conventional ladder and can be deployed in confined spaces.

These flexible ladders were originally developed for caving exploration but over the years their progression into different industries have been very successful. Such as:

  • Events rigging
  • Theatre
  • Confined space silo access
  • Manhole and sewer access
  • Marine/pleasure boats
  • Military
  • Climbing walls
  • Mining industry
  • Fire escape ladders
  • Caving ladders
