Our stairways fall into two broad classifications which are access stairway ladders and industrial stairways.
Access stairway ladders are considered ladders instead of stairways and are usually built at 57 degrees. The user must ascend and descend facing the access stairway ladder.
Industrial stairways are true stairways meaning the user ascends facing the stairway and descends facing away from the stairway. Industrial stairways are available in 50 degrees and 36 degrees.
Access stairway ladders are for use where floor space is restricted and industrial stairways are for use where more floor space is available.
Our standard line of access stairway ladders and industrial stairways meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI standards
