INDUSTRIAL ROPE LADDERS FOR ALL INDUSTRIES

THESE ROPE LADDERS ARE MADE TO INTERNATIONAL SAFETY STANDARDS AND ARE SUPPLIED WITH A CERTIFIED SAFETY CERTIFICATE.

INDUSTRIAL ROPE LADDERS ARE RUGGED AND TOUGH

Industrial rope ladders are used for everyday climbing in and out of tanks, mines, dams, maintenance shafts, ships, boats and many more.

TANK CLEANING

Many companies throughout the world and here in South Africa undertake essential tank cleaning and Metzco rope ladders have been the standard choice for many years.

Often we manufacture narrow-rung ladders to facilitate access into smaller openings in these tanks, in fact some of our rung widths have only been 250mm wide instead of the standard 400mm width.

Special hard wearing “leaders” are attached to these ladders so as not to cut or wear on the tank opening edges.

We use HT chain or wire rope see here...

DAM MAINTENANCE

The Gauteng  Water Board installed a Metzco Rope Ladder in their pipe inspection site at the De Hoop Dam which was 60M long.

We can produce any length of rope ladder, or manufacture ladders so that they join each other to reach hundreds of meters.

We did this for Koch Glitsch for th eir project on the Sasol plant. See their testimonial here…

DEEP SEA DIVING

We also produce short specialised rope ladders for the deep sea diving industry, such as Calypso at Ushaka in Durban - see pictures here…

SHAFT INSPECTION

Koeberg Nuclear Power Plant in Atlantis has deep shafts that need inspection and repairs etc. Metzco Industrial Rope Ladders are their choice of safely doing so.

This is true of mines like Anglo American and aerial cableway companies like the Swiss Cableway on Table Mountain in Cape Town.


Emergency Escape FIRE ESCAPE FIRE ESCAPE and INDUSTRIAL FIRE ESCAPE PROTOCOL

When choosing an emergency exit point in case of fire be sure to follow some common sense protocols…

  1. Identify more than one exit point
  2. Ensure that exit point allows for safe landing below eg. Roadway, electric wires or sharp fencing etc.
  3. Make sure that the exit point is free of obstacles and combustibles such as furniture, curtains etc.
  4. Remember that a rope ladder will “hug” a vertical wall so make sure you provide a spacer.
  5. If you are alone or the last one to escape be sure you have a secure handle to grip safely as you reverse out
  6. If at all possible make use of a safety rope attached above the window with a harness and rope grabber.


Please ask for assistance if needed, we have a host of accessories to help you.
