Companionway Ladders

Ascent™Companionway Ladders

Ascent companionway or ships ladders as they are commonly referred are often a preferred choice when a ladder is to be used frequently within a place of work. Companionway / Ships ladders are acknowledged to be easier and safer to use than a vertical ladder.
CE Accredited Fabrications

The companionway / ships ladder is angled between 60 to 75 degrees & is often used when space is at a premium and there is not the room for a stair. 

The Ascent companionway ladders are designed to provide a simple access solution to roof areas, items of plant or raised floors such as mezzanines. 

We manufacture our companionway ladders in both mild steel galvanised and aluminium in accordance with BS EN 4211:2005 & A1:2008.

As with all the Ascent range of ladders they are designed for ease of install and can be supplied with either a bracketry fixing kit or adjustable freestanding feet where floor / roof mounting is required.

The fixing brackets we provide allow the ladders to be affixed to a wide range of backgrounds. 

As well as fixing brackets, our self closing gates are also another great addition to the Companionway ladder. Click here to read more about them!

What We Do

Wherever roof access is required, designers are tasked with creating a safe route to and from the place of work. Following the hierarchy of safety collective protection measures should always be considered above individual fall protection solutions.

D-marc is classed as a form of Collective Demarcation Protection in accordance with the HSE's hierarchy of risk management as set out within the Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR). The WAHR 2005 Part 3 illustrates the use of a demarcation system as an "example of taking other additional suitable and sufficient measures to prevent a fall''. The demarcation system is to be placed a safe distance from the fall hazard (normally >2m). Health and Safety Roofwork HSG33 states that "where work is not done at the edge, demarcation barriers can be provided at a safe distance from the edge (usually at least 2 metres). e.g. work on an air-conditioning unit in the middle of a roof."
