FRP Ladders – A lightweight and Strong Alternative
Composite Engineering’s MaxiRAIL FRP ladder system offers strong yet lightweight ladder and platform assemblies.
At the core of our MaxiRAIL system is the MaxiSTRUCT FRP profile technology with excellent resistance to even the harshest of environments. Coupled with excellent UV and fire resistance, create long lasting and hard-wearing products.
Fabricated from all Vinyl Ester materials, MaxiRAIL FRP ladders provide a safe and long-lasting solution to height access issues in areas susceptible to corrosion, electrical conductivity, and slippery surfaces. They are also suitable for marine environments and can be installed in submerged/semi-submerged positions.
Ensuring that the ladders meet the relevant standards is an important feature of any system and all MaxiRAIL FRP ladders are designed to conform with AS1657-2018.
If your project requires a ladder cage, we have an integrated composite ladder cage solution that can be fitted on ladders that extend above 2 meters of the ground. Like the ladder assemblies the cages are lightweight, corrosion resistant and maintenance free.
Our retractable arm system has been designed to maximise the use of composite materials and provides a compact, strong, and easy to use system that neatly stows under hatches and lids.
Where required platforms can also be added using the MaxiGRATE system.
Summary of MaxiRAIL features:
- Chemical and corrosion resistant
- Non-conductive (heat and electricity)
- Suitable for marine environments
- Low maintenance
- Low lifecycle cost
We can advise the best ladder solution for needs, including design, fabrication, and installation. Our engineers will use the site measurements provided to design each ladder to our client’s individual needs.
To ensures that the spacing of rungs, the stiles and the brackets all conform to AS 1657-2018 we draw each ladder in CAD before we assemble the ladder.
