7 Steps To Your SAFRAIL Ladder

One thing many people do not realize is how often they come in contact with Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) atfiberglass-ladders work. One of our more established products is Redco™ SAFRAIL™ in use since the 1950’s. The requirement for a corrosion-resistant, yet safe and strong, ladder solution have existed as long as the industrial plants that require them have. By their very nature the ladders and cages in these facilities exist to provide workers with safe transportation around the facility. Corrosion of those ladders or cages could potentially lead to a catastrophic event…And expensive punative consequences for your company.

The good news is there is a solution and one that has stood the test of time. FRP materials have 80% the strength of steel, easily enough to support men on a ladder or provide the safety required of a cage. Redco™ SAFRAIL™ comes from the world’s leading manufacturer of pultruded products ensuring the consistent quality you need to have peace of mind that your valued workers are safe. Fiberglass outlasts aluminum and steel with virtually no maintenance. A further advantage is even the standard grade material is a high-visibility, fire-resistant, UV stabilized polyester resin.

7 Steps To Your SAFRAIL FRP Ladder:

1.) Know the length of the ladder you require

2.) Determine if you require a cage, if so what is the starting height and exit method? We can assist if necessary.

3.) Select a resin. The base resin is a fire-resistant polyester; however, a premium vinyl ester system for extremely corrosive environments is available.

4.) Select a color. The standard color is a safety yellow but custom colors may be made available upon request.

5.) Painting with polyurethane paint is recommended to prevent UV fading of the color. lack of painting will not affect the structural integrity of the ladder system.

6.) Select one of the 4 ladder systems available for selection on our brochure here.

7.) If none of the standard ladder types are acceptable, and you have drawings and specs, we can help design a custom solution.
