Retractable Ladder 

Our Retractable Ladders are manufactured from extruded anodized aluminum and stainless steel. This construction permanently avoids rust and corrosion while providing maintenance-free operation. The Stainless Steel attachment bolts prevent rust or corrosion while the Stainless Steel Base plate prevents scratching, rust and corrosion. An Extruded Aluminum Safety Rail adds safety and security during ascent or descent and enables assistance, if required. Stainless steel pivot pins with Teflon bushings prevent metal on metal contact and also prevents rust and corrosion.

This ladder has two main features to help prevent unauthorized access:  it collapses to look like a drainpipe, and has a patented opening mechanism. It may be designed to go as high as 100’ (higher if needed) and opened is only 24” wide with a 14” wide safety rail for added security. It meets ANSI and OSHA standards and requires less than 5 pounds of force to deploy the entire ladder. This folding ladder has a cap to prevent water from entering ladder column.

The mounting bracket attaches ladder to wall while allowing ladder to stand as a column directly on the ground. The Retractable Ladder requires no special wall reinforcement or through-bolting since it does not hang on the building.

A custom masonry expansion bolt or lag screw for frame or stucco is included. Stainless Steel attachment bolts prevent rust or corrosion.

The Retractable Ladder can be configured in heights up to 100 ft. (higher if needed).  Stainless steel pivot pins with Teflon bushings prevent metal on metal contact and prevent rust and corrosion. Extruded Aluminum Safety Rail adds safety and security during ascent or descent and enables assistance, if required.


Retractable Ladder


Two foot wide rungs with slip-resistant ribbed surface were tested by Underwriter's Laboratories with a 1,000 lb. static load for one hour without breaking. Individual rungs are counterweighted with stainless steel springs to allow the ladder to be easily closed regardless of height. Extruded Anodized Aluminum construction permanently avoids rust and corrosion providing maintenance-free operation.
