Harbinger seawater resistant aluminium, fixed curved step accommodation ladders with extruded treads provide a safe walking surface. With inclination angles ranging from 0 to 55 degrees from horizontal, these ladders are suitable for the majority of vessel types. The ladders have solid, lightweight stringers of own design and are fitted with wire guides.
When an accommodation ladder needs to be replaced, it is not always possible/desirable to purchase it from the original supplier. You want a fast and cost-effective solution to get your vessel sailing again. In that situation, Harbinger replacement accommodation ladders are your best choice.
In order to ensure a correct fit of the ladder to the existing stowing gear, detailed information of the existing system is required. All replacement accommodation ladders are manufactured by using either the original drawings, client supplied measurements using the our checklist (see download below), or by using information obtained during a visit to the vessel.
Advantages of Harbinger replacement accommodation ladders:
All our access systems are made of marine grade lightweight aluminium. This has several important advantages:
Lightweight material (about 1/3 of comparable steel structures)
Requires lower crane capacity
Maintenance free (self healing oxide layer)
No additional surface protection (coating / galvanizing) required
