Defender™ staircases for access to roofs and plant

Talk to Workplace Access & Safety about a Defender™ staircase for your site – undoubtedly the safest form of access to a raised area. Users can carry equipment safely and comfortably – even without a particularly high level of skill or fitness.

Defender™ staircases can be built internally or externally at gradients of between 26.5 and 45 degrees. Workplace Access & Safety can also assist with solutions for other gradients: cleated walkways for less than 26.5 degrees and ladders for gradients of more than 45 degrees.
