Pit ladder type E

Two-piece folding ladder made of aluminium with steel joints. Equipped with a mounting profile meant for placement in the sill groove to avoid tilt back. The profile can be easily adjusted according to the given pit depth. The bottom of the ladder is securely connected to a steel jack which is fixed to the shaft floor.

The folding ladder is especially suitable in lift shafts where fixing to the wall is impossible. Pit ladder type E requires a minimum shaft depth of 1.450 mm. The unfolded and locked ladder has a vertical height of approx. 2.200 mm. Exterior ladder width 350 mm.

The ladder complies with German DIN EN 131 + DIN EN 81-20/50 and VBG 74 standards set by the German Berufsgenossenschaft - Statutory Accident Insurance Institution. It comes complete with all necessary fixing material

The ladder is pulled up from the pit with a chain (ca. 3.000mm, to be connected with the shaft wall) and placed against the door threshold. Steel joints lock-in automatically while the mounting profile is placed in the sill groove.

After use, the ladder has to be lifted slightly and the joints have to be unlocked with a separate release rope before folding it back into the pit.

The aluminium ladder complies with DIN EN 131 + DIN EN 81-20/50 requirements.
