Climbing ladders offer workers a consistent, clear climbing path that is most often placed where antennas, antenna mounts or cables will not affect the worker’s ability to ascend without obstruction. Climbing ladders must still be used in conjunction with safety climb systems.
Most ladders are face mounted and are attached to horizontal and diagonal members with J-Bolts for angle members or back-up plates for round members. Splice plates are provided. Special mounting brackets can be ordered for round or angle leg-mounted ladders.
Ladders are hot dipped galvanized and widths are typically 12” with rung spacing at 12”.
The average list price for a face mounted 20’ section with mounting hardware is $349.00. An internal climbing ladder is $442.00. It does not include taxes or freight. Identify your distributor’s freight cost, as it can be a considerable percentage of the expenditure with the average section weighing 89 pounds.
We recommend that you contact our valued climbing ladder manufacturers and distributors for your site-specific requirements.
Whenever you receive a quotation from a contractor that appears to be too low, identify if they have the proper insurance, safety training and the expertise to complete the job. Oftentimes they don’t! If a supplier’s or service provider’s pricing is also extremely low, ensure that the materials and/or design meet the specifications or that they’re competent in providing their service offerings. Check references at least twice and you’ll only have to cut the purchase order once!
