Safety Cages & Ladders

Flextech Industries, Ltd. fixed ladders are the perfect solution for vertical access. Applications range from roof access on buildings to complex systems on large structures such as bag houses, scrubbers, RTOs, and other equipment. We fabricate custom metal stairs, metal spiral stairs, interior metal stairs, metal stairways for buildings, custom metal stairway, prefabricated metal stairs, metal exterior stairs, pre-fabricated metal stairs, steel ladders, rolling ladders, and welded steel dock ladders. All are fabricated in compliance with applicable OSHA safety standards and general Flextech fabrication standards. All include our standard shop primer, however, other coating options are available upon request including various finish coatings, stainless steel, and even a “cold” galvanized coating. Also, all ladders types are not designed to be “free-standing” and will require bolted or welded attachments (as necessary) to an adequate structure.
