Bespoke steel safety ladders and platforms
When off the shelf fabricated platforms, ladders and gantry systems are not sufficient to provide required levels of access for healthy and safety and or ease of work tasks, JPen are well versed in designing either mobile or static custom fabrications. Bespoke access platforms can be made as modular or vari-form pieces.
Ladders and platforms are manufactured in accordance with current British Standards and are specifically designed to comply with Health & Safety requirements. They are typically manufactured in stainless or mild steel and can be finished through painting, galvanising or both. There is also the option to produce ladders and support framework in aluminium, should there be any specific requirement to do so. Aluminium can be forged to strengths that approximate steel without the high weight penalty that the latter incurs.
Platforms can be supplied with self-closing gates, ensuring that access is restricted according to site regulations. Perimeter hand railing is designed to offer safety without restricting practical usage of the platform. Kicking edges around the platform stop kit being accidentally knocked off the platform and creating a hazard for those underneath. Access to platforms can be provided by vertical cage ladders, sloping ship’s ladders or through conventional stair systems.
