Bratts have been making ladders since 1895, supplying the Railways since 1938 and the Electricity industry since 1953.
We are a British Standards licenced UK manufacturer, producing non-conductive Timber and Glassfibre ladders, stepladders, platforms and specialist access equipment for industrial use.
We also fabricate in Aluminium, Steel and Stainless Steel.
We supply every major UK electricity, rail, telecom, gas, chemical, oil, aviation and construction company and similar industries worldwide.
All our products comply with internationally recognised standards old and new, including BS EN131, BS1129, BS2037, ANSI 14-5 and ENA 14-1.
The British Standard Kitemark (BS) is only awarded to products that pass strict regular testing, which guarantees you continuous audited quality. EN131 alone does not.
We worked with the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) to help produce the Work at Height Regulations and the HSE Guidance for Industry. We can therefore advise on access equipment use within these procedures.
We also sit on the Ladder and Stepladder Standards committee at the British Standards Institute with the HSE, BERR, Trading Standards and Consumer Groups.
In response to requests from a number of major companies, we have developed the SLS (Safe Ladder System©) which has proved a simpler, safer way to work at height with ladders and platforms.
Bratts can bespoke manufacture access equipment to your own specification, quote for repairs, run certified training courses and advise on maintenance routines and log books.
We still maintain the Timber ladders we made for one utility and rail company over 28 years ago!
