Ships Ladder

Ships Ladder

The Skyline Ships Ladder is manufactured using high-grade structural aluminum, providing a lightweight, high strength rooftop access system that can be used in multiple applications. The versatile non-penetrating system can be customized to meet specific project requirements. The steel ships ladder is a non-penetrating freestanding ladder system that will not impact the roofing membrane saving installation time and potential future rooftop leaking issues.

Designed with the user in mind, the stair ladder creates safe access to varying rooftop levels, roof hatches and elevated platforms or walkways. Aluminum Ships Ladders are a safe option for difficult areas where fixed access ladders may obstruct a door or window. It meets OHSA and ANSI requirements creating both a safe rooftop environment for all workers and maintenance personnel.

Benefits & Features

The Skyline Group Ships Ladder is suitable for most safe roof access applications. All Skyline Ladders are constructed using high-grade aluminum designed with accessibility in mind, allowing for unobstructed access to varying height entrances and access to roof hatches with limited accessibility. This fixed stair-style ladder is available with a safety ladder cage that provides a ladder safety guard and meets Canadian ladder cage codes.

Past Projects

  • City Housing Hamilton Corporation
    Location: Hamilton, ON
    Date: Winter 2019
    Description: To safely provide access to the utilities and maintenance area of this rooftop, a Ships Ladder with a Parapet Platform and Fixed Guardrails was utilized. This combination allows for easy access to this area where a normal staircase would obstruct the doorway at the base of the system. The stair ladder with handrails provides a gradual incline, rather than a completely vertical incline, to ease in the passage up and down the system when handling tools and equipment for maintenance staff.
  • Flanagan Cold Storage
    Location: Whitby, Ontario
    Date: Winter 2018
    Description: A Rooftop Ships Ladder was used in this application where access to varying roof levels was required for maintenance personnel. By utilizing the non-penetrating ladder, the client was able to save space while creating a safe and secure passage for all workers and maintain the overall integrity of their rooftop. The use of an aluminum ships ladder in this location also provides efficiency by minimizing the number of additional tools and portable ladders required by rooftop workers and withstands tough weather conditions year-round.
