The Fibrelight Emergency Ladder is a SOLAS approved ‘Means of Embarkation’ and life saving device.  The Ladder has been accepted by the MCA (UK Flag) to be used on all vessel types. The Emergency Ladders are in use across the world on merchant ships, offshore support vessels, navy warships, super yachts and on land in overhead cranes.

The ladder has been designed for use in emergencies, it can be carried and then deployed by a single person in less than a minute, as it is both lightweight and straightforward to use.

The ladder is a standard width of 600mm and is produced in lengths of 2 – 30metres, in either Orange or Black. The ladder contains no metal parts and therefore is suitable for deployment on all vessel types such as LPG carriers with a flammable risk and cruise ships/yachts with precious surfaces.

A 30-metre ladder weighs less than 30 kilograms. With a natural step action the double rung ladder is considerably easier and safer to use. The ladder is both faster to climb and more importantly to descend than a single rung ladder.

SOLAS Chapter III, 31.1.4 & MSC.1/Circ. 1243 requires that all cargo ships with more than 100m from stem or stern to the closest survival craft is required to carry remote life rafts and a means of disembarkation enabling descent to the water in a controlled manner. The use of a knotted rope is no longer approved.

The Fibrelight Emergency Ladder has been designed and tested to meet this requirement and to offer a safer and easier disembarkation method.
