Vertical Access Ladder

Standard Installation Considerations:
(As required per Federal Code 29CFR-1910.27, local codes may vary)

  • Cages may be required on all access ladders of more than 20 feet to a maximum unbroken length of 30 feet
  • Intermediate platforms or landings may be required at 30 foot intervals or fraction there of, when overall height exceeds 30 feet
  • When intermediate platforms are used adjacent ladder sections are to be offset.
  • When exiting to the side at the top of the access ladder, rungs will continue 4 feet above the platform.
  • When exiting to the front at the top of the access ladder, boarding rails shall extend 42″ above the top rungs.
