Travelling Ladders & Gantries

Over the last 50 years the continuous improvement in glass technology has strengthened its position as an essential construction material for modern low energy buildings. Huge glazed atria and walls of structural glass now dominate many public and commercial buildings across the world, creating light and airy places for work and leisure.

With this development has also come a greater requirement for safely accessing these areas for cleaning and maintenance, many of which cannot be reached with traditional methods.

To overcome this issue Eurosafe Solutions offer a fully bespoke design, fabrication, supply and installation service for access gantries, ladders and cradles; providing legislatively compliant maintenance access to all aspects of modern glazed atriums, both internally and externally.

As the areas these systems are most commonly used in are often the centre piece features of the project, we will constantly meet and discuss our designs with the project architect to try to ensure the installation has as minimal visual impact on the building as possible.

Travelling Ladders

Our tailor made solutions are designed to run on aluminium rails fixed back to the building structure. These can be used for both internal and external applications; be manually or electrically traversed and are designed to suit your exact requirements with regard to tasks that they are carrying out.

To deal with the complexity of modern glass facades, Eurosafe Solutions have developed flexible jointing systems. This allows travelling ladders to go around corners and deal with long and short runs of tapering glass where the spacing’s and geometry of the top and bottom rails is never constant.

Throughout this process our design team ensure the architectural integrity of the building is compromised as little as possible.

All of our systems are offered in various finishes and colours, allowing them to blend seamlessly into the building structure.

Travelling Gantries

Eurosafe Solutions access gantries are designed and fabricated for the purpose of providing permanent safe access to the internal and external glazing on atria and roof light areas.

Each unit is individually designed and constructed from aluminium sections and connected to extruded aluminium monorails generally at each end of the unit. The use of lightweight materials ensures easy manoeuvrability of the unit along the length of the track.

Each gantry is supplied complete with handrails, toeboards and a braking system for when parked, and can be manually or electrically traversed. The support structure and rails of these systems can be also modified to allow the suspension of cradle and abseil systems to provide access to vertical areas of glazing beneath the atrium.

All of our systems are offered in various finishes and colours, allowing them to blend seamlessly into the building structure.
