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 fixed aluminum wall ladders, its aluminum construction also makes it virtually maintenance free. A Ships Stair is an ideal solution for mezzanine access, or when crossing over items when combined with a platform between stairs to bridge over the obstacle.

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 5-3/16′′ x 1-1/4′′ x 1/8′′ extruded channel with deeply
    serrated surface to maximize traction
  • 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

Precision also provides roof access from a building’s interior by combining an aluminum ships stair with a roof hatch. Precision’s Ships Stairs are built to meet or exceed OSHA 1910 Subpart D.
