Walker Rubber's Rollaway Bank Ladder

Developed, initially, as a way of helping agricultural workers access steep-sided ditches quickly and safely, our rollaway bank ladders provide a simple solution to the problem of getting up and down awkward slopes. This versatile product has proven very popular with the Rail and Civil Engineering sectors and is especially helpful for emergency or temporary use. Bank Ladders can be linked together to access deep cuttings or steep embankments significantly improving foothold and reducing risk.
