Total access solution
Bilco UK has extended its commitment to further improve safety at work by introducing a new range of fixed vertical and retractable ladder products. This, together with its established range of roof and access hatches and floor doors, means Bilco can now offer a complete access solution. The new retractable aluminium ladders are available with or without a hatchbox with a laminated wood trapdoor and lining and have an option for a fire-rated steel hatchbox and lining.
The optional steel-lined hatchbox offers two layers of 1.5mm thick sheet steel infilled with 38 mm of mineral wool to provide fire resistance for 30 minutes, or 75mm of mineral wool to create fire resistance for 90 minutes. The lining butts up against the ceiling to help prevent flame and smoke ingress.
Telescopic handrails (with a minimum ceiling opening length of 1000 mm), insulated trapdoor and lining, and electrically-operated trapdoor and stair are all available as options. The retractable ladders can also be supplied as stand-alone products.
Bilco can also now offer a range of fixed vertical ladders supplied either in steel or aluminium, with optional safety cage and guardrail.
