Access Ladders

An access ladder, also known as a fixed ladder or roof access ladder, is a vertical ladder that is permanently attached to a structure, providing climbers with an extra measure of stability. While primarily used to provide roof access, fixed ladders have a variety of applications in both commercial and industrial settings.

Wildeck offers a comprehensive line of access ladder solutions (vertical ladders, dock ladders and ships ladders) known throughout the industry as the standard for sturdiness and durability. Constructed with heavy-duty steel, Wildeck’s access ladder products are specifically engineered to create an easy and safe climbing experience. Available in both standard and custom designs (based on your application requirements), Wildeck’s steel ladders comply with all applicable safety regulations (OSHA and CAL-OSHA).

To maximize the safety and efficiency of each climbing experience, ladder rungs on Wildeck’s access ladders are made with 18-inch wide by ¾-inch diameter solid steel and are spaced on 12-inch centers. Ladder rungs are welded to ⅜-inch by 2½-inch flat bar side rails, enhancing the steel ladder’s stability.

Whether your application is big or small, interior or exterior, Wildeck has the right heavy-duty ladder solution for you.

Access Ladder Safety

 As of November 19, 2018, OSHA’s general industry fall protection regulations have changed. All fixed ladders (new and existing) in excess of 24-feet tall must be equipped with compliant fall protection systems. Additionally, cages are no longer considered a viable fall protection system on fixed ladders that are 24-feet or taller (29 CFR 1910.28 (b) (9)).

To ensure compliance and provide climbers with peace of mind, all Wildeck access ladders subject to this regulation are sold with ladder climbing safety systems for continuous fall protection. For more information about the new OSHA requirements and Wildeck’s compliance products, please speak with your sales specialist.

We couldn’t find a standard catalog ladder that would fit in the narrow space and let our operator reach the top of our printing press. We needed a custom ladder and the guys at Wildeck quickly designed exactly what we needed. When the ladder arrived, we were impressed with the perfect fit.
