When you climb high you need to pay attention to your personal safety as well as that of others. From an elevated high vertical ladder it is possible to slip, fall or accidentally drop objects and work tools causing personal injury or injury to those below. What precautions should be taken into consideration when working at high altitudes? Let’s see together some characteristics of cage ladders.
Industrial ladder with protection
A caged ladder is an industrial ladder used to climb on tall buildings and to gain access on roof tops in most cases, but also to descend to underground levels such as car parking and wells. A vertical safety cage ladder is provided in order to protect the worker or the user from falling from high altitudes, to avoid accidental dropping of objects and to guarantee safety in high-traffic areas.
Ladder safety cages
A cage ladder is equipped with a welded safety cage to protect against accidental slip and falling during the climbing or the works at high place. Our products comply with the workplace safety provisions updated at national and international level, right from the design and construction phase, using valid and safe, stable and robust materials that take into account loading weights and atmospheric conditions.
The international safety directives
According to the international safety regulation on worksites and to access facilities and machines, both in Europe and in the rest of the world (as for example in the U.S.A. with the OSHA ladder cage), a cage ladder must respect very precise parameters in manufacturing to protect the user and guarantee safety in all its aspects. The safety construction provisions consist in several points regarding, for example:
- Loading capability
- Rest platforms
- Rungs minimum distance
- Minimum width between side rails
- Minimum clearance between the climbing side and any obstruction
- Maximum pitch degree
- Resistant and safety cage
- Guardrails protection
Application field of ladders with cage
Cage ladders are used in many fields to access elevated heights in complete safety, as already mentioned above. In most cases, a caged ladder is provided for external use, granting durability. The application scenarios mainly concern tall buildings, silos, warehouses, roof-tops, antennas, parking sites and machinery access. The design of a ladder with cage can take into consideration different purposes and places of application, they are properly fixed on walls and can be created in different ways depending on needs, with rest platforms, walkways etc.

How to use a work platform on a working space? Work platforms and hop ups are very stable and safe products to use, but there are some points which need to be paid attention to in order to guarantee safety during the use. What are the correct procedures when using a work platform hop up in a completely safe manner to avoid accidents of any type? Let’s consider together the most common practices for using work platform hop-ups.
Fix type work platform ladders
Regarding all types of industrial ladders, there are safety provisions both for the construction of the product itself and for its use in the workplace. Professional products are always accompanied by detailed instruction manuals with all the precautions for use and for the product maintenance, since a correct maintenance is also very important to ensure safety. All users must be aware of the correct way to use the product.
Adjustable work platforms
In case of platforms and ladders adjustable in height, the user needs to make sure that the ladder is completely opened and blocked before use. Height adjustable work platforms have security blocks to avoid unpleasant surprises during the use.
Do not overload
Whether a simple step stool or a platform ladder, all of our products have a maximum load capacity. It is important that the user is concerned about the maximum load before using any type of ladder work platform, both for human weight and for the weight of equipment. The space of the platform also needs to be taken in consideration when positioning the working materials or other working equipment.
Work on flat surfaces
Work platforms ladders can be very solid and steady as far as they are used on flat surfaces. It is important to consider the consistency and the inclination of the land where the hop-ups are placed and avoid non-flat surfaces or slippery surfaces when using the work platform hop-ups.
Never exceed working height
Any ladder work platform has a maximum height. The working height can be considered the total sum of the platform height plus the height of the operator. Do not exceed the working height when positioning or working on elevated locations to store goods of just for maintenance work to avoid fallings. It is also important not to expose yourself from the platform during the work phases. Do not add additional height by using blocks or other material on top of the platform.
Work only on the platform
For different kinds of particular operation and particular heights, it is important to work only from the platform protected place and not to work on the steps. Work platform steps are anti-slip to facilitate the climbing on the platform but are not conformed to work on them at certain heights.
Do not combine two or more products together
Do not place one tool on top of another tool or build towers of any kind to reach high places. Each single product must be used in maximum safety due to its specific usage properties, and must not be used improperly.
Consider the weather before use
When using a product for outdoor use, always consider the weather conditions to avoid dangers and inconveniences. Do not use hop ups or platform ladders outside during rain, snow, high wind or under other similar adverse weather conditions.
For any other issue on matters of safety use of hop-ups, step stools and platform ladders feel free to contact our staff.
