How It Works

Low profile Appearance

When the Saffold ladder is not in use the anti-slip rungs are concealed within its own low-profile. The closed ladder is only 74mm deep and has an appearing much like that of a drainpipe or cable trunking meaning it is unobtrusive.

Deploying the Ladder

Upon releasing the anti-tamper pin (located at top of the ladder), the ladder is opened out away from the wall with the rungs falling into place as the rail extends to form a sturdy, fixed fire escape ladder. The bottom rung of the ladder should ideally be located 55cm from the ground when installing the unit, so that when the ladder is used in an emergency the final step is not too far for the user.

Once the ladder has been deployed you can secure safety harnesses to the outer rail to give users peace of mind and also added security when descending the ladder.


Installation of the Saffold ladder can be carried out by any competent DIY person. We provide a step-by-step DVD that shows how to erect your fire escape ladder and also shows you all of the features and benefits that you will enjoy. All fixtures and fittings are provided with the ladder, these include:

  • Anchorage bolts
  • Drill bits
  • Wall brackets
  • Locking pin

The ladder when opened must NOT touch the ground. This is important to avoid any rubble blocking the full opening of the ladder

The installation DVD can be bought separately prior to purchase so that you can decide whether you would be capable of installation yourself or whether you would need to seek assistance.
