Ascent ladder to hatch – Reading

Safety Fabrications were approached by Working at Height Safety specialist PTSG Access & Safety to design and supply a fixed ladder to provide access to the roof of a Reading data-centre.

The client required access to the rooftop to undertake Planned Preventative maintenance activities including the inspection / maintenance of Photovoltaic panels, air-conditioning plant, rooflight and gutter cleaning.

Safety Fabrications recommended the fixed Ascent™ vertical ladder with hoops. At the head of the ladder PTSG then installed a ladder-up post which affords the user a handhold to assist with existing and entering the hatch.

The Ascent fixed access ladder with Safety Cage is designed in accordance with BS EN 14122-4:2016 and can be detailed to suit a wide range of building types. Where heights exceed 10m intermediate rest platforms can be added and other safety features introduced to meet site conditions, such as Anti-Climb covers, self-closing gates and ladder-up posts.

The Ascent ladder was installed by PTSG in accordance with the provided comprehensive install guidelines. The Ascent ladder is designed & tested in accordance with BS EN 14122-4:2016 and manufactured at our Sheffield premises to CE / UKCA standards in accordance with BS EN 1090 manufacturing procedures.
