Fixed steel ladders are usually used on the outside of industrial buildings, and other permanent structures to allow access to the roof. These are pretty basic ladders, on the other hand there are several things to keep in mind with fixed steel ladders. First is keeping unwanted users from accessing the steps. There are options of security doorways and locking panels to enable them to secure access to the ladder. Another option for this style of ladder is a safety cage. This can be mounted to the fixed material ladder to add safety to the user. It stops anyone climbing the ladder via falling backward off the ladder. Another option is a top walk-through, this provides a handle towards the top on each side of the step ladder to help the user remain stable while stepping off the step ladder at the top. Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a ladder height is the fact OSHA requires a step off platform for ladders 20+ feet or every 20 feet of climbing level. You can order these step off platforms at the same time you order the fixed metal ladder.
