The Fibrelight Self Recovery Ladder, based on the SOLAS Fibrelight Emergency Ladder, has been designed as a life-saving device for fishermen operating vessels on their own or with limited crews.
The Fibrelight Self Recovery Ladder is kept in a burst-zip bag which is permanently attached to the side of the vessel. An adjustable cord allows the ladder to be pulled from the bag by a user who has fallen overboard, the bottom of the ladder falls into the water and the casualty can climb back into the vessel without any further assistance.
The ladder has been designed for use by a single person and can be deployed in seconds. The ladder has a width of 600mm and is manufactured in half metre lengths from 1-3 metres. The ladder has no mechanical moving parts and as such requires no maintenance other than visual inspections. The rungs are made of GRP although the bottom rung is made of stainless steel in order that the ladder sinks to a level in line with the user’s foot.
