AGI FRAME manufactures a wide variety of vertical and roof access ladders, safety platforms, catwalks, and support towers to suit the complete range of FP and FC range silos to suit all possible applications.

Door Step

Provides access to the sidewall door from the silo's base level. The step is manufactured from galvanised steel and has a non-slip surface.

External Vertical Ladder with Safety Cage

With welded rungs and a hot dipped galvanised finish, FRAME vertical ladders are designed to the latest European safety standards. They are manufactured from zero level to eaves height and the safety cage is fitted from a height of approximately 2300mm above zero level.

Intermediate rest platforms are included with vertical ladders, to comply with standard European safety regulations at nominal 9000mm intervals, (6000mm Germany). Note, internal vertical ladders are offered for the full range of FP and FC silos, although (for safety reasons,) we do not recommend them.

Roof Ladders

The galvanised standard roof ladder includes double handrails and features formed angle rungs that are supplied to suit smaller model silos, providing access from a vertical ladder to the centre cap. It incorporates a hinged step section providing access to the eaves manhole.

A platform at the eaves provides a safe closed connection when accessing the roof ladder on the silo when using the exterior vertical ladder. The front landing is required when using the exterior vertical ladder and either of the roof ladders. It provides a safe closed connection when accessing the roof ladder of the silo.

Roof Stairways

For larger diameter silos, where access from individual eaves platforms to the catwalk is required, we recommend a roof stairway, incorporating double handrails, formed steps with a nonslip surface, and the necessary supports and connections to provide a direct connection to the catwalk.

Centre Cap Handrail

Where access around the centre cap is required we recommend the use of the additional handrail.

Spiral Stairway with Eaves Platform

Normally used on larger silos, fitted around the circumference of the silo cylinder, the galvanised spiral access ladder provides easier access to the eaves level. An eaves platform with safety handrails is included.

To provide access to the eaves hatch, or the high level sensor when fitted, FRAME ladders incorporate a safety cage and an access platform positioned below the eaves level.

Spiral Ladders

Spiral stairway with eave landing platform 1000×1000 mm. Provides access to the silo eave level with a rest platform for hatch inspection. Steps are manufactured from galvanized steel and has a non-slip surface.

Access Ladders & Platform to Second Floor

Particularly designed for larger silos, FRAME can offer a second sidewall access door, normally positioned at the level of the angle of repose. To access the door, an external ladder with safety cage together with an external platform with necessary safety handrails as well as an internal ladder, all fully galvanised, is available.

Ladder with Body Safety Cage to the Level of the Compression Ring C/W Platform

Designed for FC hopper silos; provides access to the optional sidewall door.

Eaves Platform & Vertical Ladder to Catwalk

To provide access to the eaves hatch, or the high level sensor when fitted, FRAME offers a ladder incorporating a safety cage and an access platform positioned below the eaves level.

Access Ladder & Platform to Sidewall Discharge Slide

Where a gravity sidewall discharge slide is required, AGI FRAME supplies a vertical ladder and access platform.
