Alaco Fixed Access Aluminum Ladders have a reputation of being among the sturdiest in the industry. Using only high-quality, high-strength 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum alloy, Alaco ladders are manufactured for extra safety and longer life, while meeting strict OSHA and ANSI requirements.

Virtually maintenance-free, aluminum access ladders never need painting and offer superior scratch resistance to ladders constructed of lower grade alloy or steel. Additionally, every ladder is designed to fit specific conditions, (using standardized components) for flexibility and efficiency.

90° Fixed Ladders

Since vertical climbing requires more effort from the upper body, Alaco 90° Fixed Ladders feature round rungs instead of flat rungs. Round rungs are superior because they provide a stronger, more comfortable grip as you pull yourself up. Round rungs also provide a more natural support for the feet, which pivot more when climbing straight up.

Rungs on Alaco ladders have a serrated surface for a no-slip grip and are secured to the side rails with cast aluminum connectors – using 4 solid aircraft rivets on each rung – for a permanent, no-twist installation.

Fixed Angle Ladders

Alaco Ships and Folding Ladders use flat steps of varying widths – each chosen for a specific angle. Flat steps offer the best support when climbing at an angle.

Fixed angle ladder steps have non-slip ridges on the top, and are permanently affixed to the side-rails using 8 solid rivets per step Flush or extended handrails are designed to fit users’ hands to provide a comfortable grip when steadying the body during climbing. Special heavy-duty mounting brackets further ensure a safe, secure and ergonomic ladder system.

Cage & Platforms

Cages – Required for ladders over 20 feet tall. It’s the law
Alaco Cages for fixed access ladders offer added safety for climbs higher than 20 feet. Made of the same aircraft-grade aluminum alloy as the ladders themselves, cages use 1/4” x 2” hoops riveted to seven 3/16” x 1-1/2” vertical bars for optimal structural stability. All cages come in standard mill finish.

Platforms – Required for Ladders over 30 feet tall
Alaco Platforms for fixed access ladders – required at every 30 foot interval – give users a secure resting area when climbing very tall ladders. Special brackets ensure secure mounting of the platform, which is enclosed with round, serrated tube railings.

Rugged Grip Strut® floor grating allows for safer footing and is virtually self-cleaning. All platforms come in standard mill finish.

What They’re Saying…

Jamie Fischer

Alaco Ladders’ ease of installation, appearance and function lead to positive results for our closet customers, which in turn leads to more referrals for JL Closets. I have no hesitation recommending Alaco to anyone needing a ladder system because they offer a very solid product produced by a very professional company and staff.

I just received our Alaco Ladder and I must say it is beautiful – great craftsmanship and nice design. It was easy to setup and install. It adds the perfect aesthetic and functionality to the loft above the kitchen in my Florida Keys-style bungalow.

I enjoyed working with the Alaco Team. They made the purchasing process easy and informative so I was able to plan my ladder project to perfection.
