Metzco Rope Ladder

Rope Ladders do not seem part of the security arsenal, but what do you do if you are caught in an upper floor situation?

Remember, if you are in South Africa, the law states categorically that you must provide safe egress from your building (See our SAFETY Page for more info)

Emergency escape ladders are in short supply, not only in the market but also in the mind.

Most of us give little attention to fire escape rope ladders, which is an often overlooked, but vital piece of security equipment.


This "rope" ladder rolls up into a small lightweight bundle and is ready to drop over a wall, a balcony or out of a window for easy and safe escape.

Each rope ladder is hand made by the owner and his daughter who care greatly for the safety of their customers. Just as a sky-diver is paranoid about his parachute, so are we about our rope ladders!
