Find Your Ideal Ladder at Kattsafe
The versatile RL31 model with grab rails improves climbing comfort and confidence. Grab rails mount at the ladder’s head, and another rail bolts at the top to ensure more safety when exiting the ladder. Cut this unit to the exact size and assemble it on-site for a perfect fit.
Our RL32 configuration includes a Parapet platform. At the top, you’ll find a round knee rail constructed with the same high-tensile aluminum and mounted with screws. The mesh-style platform deck has a ribbed finish for enhanced safety.
We’ve designed the RL33 fixed ladder with an 8-foot walkway at the ladder head for safer access. For extra safety and stability, mesh-style decking and round knee rails surround the platform. Attach knee rails to each post with self-tapping screws and choose from multiple mounting configurations.
The RL34 ladder for roof hatch access is a compliant solution with extruded aluminum stiles. We deliver these as a kit, and you cut the ladder’s base to length on site. Mount it with standard floor brackets or choose another mounting style.
Our RL35 model has a 3-foot platform walkway featuring a sturdy aluminum mesh and ribbed finish. We supply it as a kit for on-site sizing and assembly. Customize this design with self-closing platform gates and multiple mounting styles.
All components and accessories are manufactured from high grade structural aluminum with options for powder coating.
