09 - HEIGHT SAFETY
Permanent Access Ladder Systems
Permanent Access Ladder Systems provide a safer egress
from one roof level to the other. Manufactured from high-grade
extruded structural aluminium they require minimal space when
installed. A fall protection system can be incorporated whether
it be a fixed cage or vertical lifeline for safety. All ladders are
designed in accordance to AS1657:1992.
Permanent Access Ladder Systems Include The Following
• Provide a fixed point and safe means of access
• Light weight structural aluminium
• Easy onsite installation assembly
• Low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing
• Lockable cover or door
Ladder Brackets are designed to provide a fixed, secure
attachment point for temporary ladders when accessing a
rooftop. They are constructed from 316 Stainless Steel and
are available for bolting into walls, fascias and act as a cover
to protect the gutter from being crushed or damaged. Ladder
Brackets will prevent the temporary ladder from moving side
to side and provides an easy lashing point. When used with
permanent anchor points, it provides a seamless safe egress
Roof Walkway Systems & Guard Rails
Bullivants can assist to improve roof top access with lightweight
and versatile walkways and guardrails.
With the option of either aluminium or fibreglass, walkways
provide a safe non-slip surface, and provide a stable platform
when travelling across the roof space, eliminating any damage
to the roof sheeting. The aluminium walkway also has the
capabilities of including steps in between walkways from one
roof level to the other.
Guardrails are a permanent system that provide a solid barrier
for fall protection for when working at heights. Guardrails can
be incorporated into walkways, platforms, stairs, metal roof
sheeting, concrete and steel structures.
Falls from a vertical ladder can occur. Bullivants
recommendation is to install a fall protection
system for any ladder over 3m. That being
either a fixed cage or vertical lifeline/rail as per
AS1657:1992 (Section 5).
