  • Technical Information

Description: The shielding door of the Ladder Gate® unit is constructed of heavy-gauge, rust-proof aluminum.  The angled sides prevent reaching around the shield to gain access to the ladder.  The eight foot length deters bypassing.  All braces and hardware are fabricated from 1/4"  thick galvanized steel.

The preventative shield can be installed to swing open from either the right or the left, allowing easy use of the ladder.  It is secured with your own padlock when closed.  Since only personnel with a key can open the device, the easily installed Ladder Gate® shield prevents unwanted or uncontrolled access.

  • All braces and hardware are fabricated from rust resistant, hot-dip galvanized, heavy gauge steel.
  • Heavy-gauge aluminium shield - 3 ft x 8 ft; 1/8" thick.
  • Bolt-on brackets ensure easy installation (no welding, cutting or alterations necessary).
  • Use of heavy duty, high quality padlock is recommended.
  • "Side Lock" option. Included with each shield
  • "Front Lock" option. Included with each shield
  • 8' continuous heavy duty piano hinge.

For best results, Ladder Gate Climb Preventive Shield should be installed, at a minimum, of 10' above ladder base.  Each Ladder Gate shield is complete with instructions and can be installed by two un-skilled personnel in less than one hour, using a 9/16" socket or wrench.

Feature Benefits:

  •  Maintenance-free, rust proof, tamper proof, no paint needed.
  • Hinged shield gate. Swings completely out of the climber's way when ladder is in use.
  • Latch for padlock use. Ensures key-safe, controlled access by authorized persons only.
