Vertical Access Ladder

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

  • 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.


Optional Features:

  • 10-Gauge Steel Security Door
  • Bottom Hoop Security Hatch
  • Foot pads in lieu of bottom stand-off brackets
  • Split or extended stand-off brackets
  • Dock treads
  • Integral platform – 30″ wide x 30″ deep
  • 3″ x 3″ x 1/4″ angle side stringers
  • Step-off platform at top
  • Side exit to either side at top of cage ladder
  • Special paint colors
  • Hot dip galvanized finish

Important OSHA Update

As of November 19, 2018, OSHA’s general industry fall protection regulations require employers to add ladder safety or personal fall arrest systems onto all new and existing fixed access ladder installations in excess of 24’ (1910.28(b)(9)). To help you comply, Wildeck offers fall arrest systems on its access ladders.

  • 3/8″ x 2-1/2″ flat bar side rails

  • 1-5/8″ diameter tube – 42″ tall boarding rail
  • Stand-off brackets on maximum 72″ centers
  • Heavy-duty flat bar cage

I was impressed by Wildeck's commitment to safety and their proactive approach to going above and beyond OSHA standards.
