Aluminum vs Steel Ladders
To help you understand why Alaco’s aluminum ladders are the preferred choice for ships, let us compare there with steel ladders. But first, consider the environment upon which these ladders will be used. Ladders on ships are generally used for work platforms, mezzanines, and sides of the ship. This means that these ladders are exposed to wet and harsh environments, and deal with frequent usage. With that said, here are some of the reasons why aluminum ship ladders are preferred over steel ladders for ships.
Corrosion and rust resistant
Steel, even stainless steel, will eventually rust and corrode although it may not immediately manifest depending on the grade of the material. Aluminum, on the other hand, is resistant to both corrosion and rust, which is why it is the ideal material for ship ladders. As mentioned above, ladders on ships are typically exposed to the elements; and even those ladders that are installed inside the ship will still be exposed to a wet environment, which is why they need these ladders to be resistant to the effects of prolonged water or moisture exposure.
With that said, aluminum ship ladders are the better choice if safety, durability, and longevity are what you are after.
Lightweight yet sturdy
Another quality of aluminum ladders for ships that engineers, contractors, and even safety consultants appreciate is how lightweight aluminum ladders are. This makes it easier to transport and carry the ladders to spaces or spots on the ship where they are being installed.
Alaco Ladders Ship Ladders
