Cat ladders

All stock products are made in steel that is hot dip galvanised for the best possible corrosion protection. Most of the products are also available in painted versions (painted after hot dip galvanisation) in black or brick-red.

Weland's ladders can be used for towers, silos, bridge piers, chimneys etc. In the case of tall ladders, there should be a rest landing if possible. Where hoop guards are used, these finish max. 2.5 m from ground level. We recommend that ladders above 6 m should have hoop guards.

Lightweight ladder offering good stability. The ladder's stringers are in a roll-formed U-profile. The rungs are profiled to reduce the risk of slipping and are swaged on both the inside and outside for double safety. Design according to SS 831340 and SS-EN ISO 14122-4.

Accessories

The handrail is installed to the side of the ladders with or without safety cage. The handrail is folded 100 mm to the side to give more space for passing.

Handrails are normally installed one on each side, but in some cases, it may be sufficient on just one side.

The handrail can be equipped with anchorage lugs at the top that are used when working on a step plate. The handrail can also be used with an external sleeve for removability, which is useful when the ladder is installed below a hatch.

Two standing platforms for cat ladders. Both of them are folding. They can be used with advantage where there is a need for an intermediate landing at the middle of the cat ladders, in order to stand more comfortably. This could be next to a service point or in the middle or a longer run of cat ladders.

The platform is normally folded back behind the rungs and it is easily pulled out with your foot.

The standing platforms are available for the whole width of the ladder or split so they can be used together with a fall arrestor/safety wire.

The single standing platform is assembled using 2 x M10x20 + locking nuts. The double platform is sold as a complete set, with the necessary fixing materials.

Stiffening rails come as bent sections with a length of 1200 mm, which hook into each other and bolt to the side of the ladder. With an ingenious hook at the end of the section, we can construct a strong support profile using short sections. With a stiffening rail installed, the max. separation is 5.7 m compared to the standard 2.5 m. The rail can be used together with other accessories such as safety cage, standing platform, handrail, etc.

With our solution, you can let the permanent ladder finish a good way up the wall and, even so, have access to an evacuation ladder that reaches all the way to the ground. On evacuation, you climb down the ladder, kick the locking device, on which the loose ladder comes loose and slides down to the ground. You then just continue, down to solid ground.
