The Xquip pilot ladder is a very robust and lightweight ladder, that complies with SOLAS requirements.
Using carbon fiber technology enabled us to reduce the weight of each step to 1100 gram each, which makes even a 15 step ladder easy to handle by one crew-member solely.
Each step is clamped onto the dyneema rope provided along, using fiber reenforced plastic clamps. Broken steps are easily replaced as each step can be slid of the clamps individually.
Storage of the ladder is easy as the spreader bars can be disconnected from the ladder, allowing for the ladder to be rolled up in a small package.
