Aluminum Ships Stairs

The two most important features of Precision’s Ships Stairs are easy installation and no maintenance. The relative weight of these units compared to a steel unit makes it a breeze to install and as with the FL series ladders, its aluminum construction also makes it virtually maintenance free. A Ships Stair is an ideal solution for mezzanine access or, when combined with a Precision Roof Hatch, for roof access from interior of building.

Some important characteristics of these ladders are:

  • All components shall be aluminum alloy 6005-T5
  • Stringers are 5″ x 2″ x 3/16″ aluminum channel
  • Treads are from the same extrusion used on our Super Simplex Disappearing Stairway, 5-3/16″ x 1-1/4″ x 1/8″ extruded channel with deeply serrated surface to maximize traction in a 30″ clear width
  • Handrails are 1-1/4″ schedule 40 pipe
  • Mill finish aluminum
  • Available in pitches from 60 degrees to 70 degrees

Available as options:

  • Wider tread widths up to 48″ maximum
  • Other finishes: anodized, powder coated
  • Bar grating treads
