Standard Embarkation and Jacob’s Ladders
At Redden Net & Rope Ltd, we offer two ladder types: the Standard Embarkation ladder and Jacob’s ladder.
The Standard Embarkation ladder extends from the deck to the waterline in the lightest seagoing condition. Standard Embarkation ladders are mandatory marine safety equipment. They are launched down the side of a ship during an emergency situation for crews to get in and out. Jacob’s ladder, on the other hand, consists of vertical ropes supporting horizontal, round and wooden rungs. They are used to allow access over the side of ships.
These two ladder types share several product similarities including:
3/4” polysteel or manila side ropes
Step attachments of #48 nylon twine
Thimble eyes at the ladder head
However, these two rope ladder types differ in their measurement specifications:
Jacob’s: 1 7/8” x 20” x 1 7/8” round wood
Standard: 4” x 20” x 1” wood
Keep in mind that our Standard Embarkation ladder in Richmond, BC features anti-tipple chalks on each step and measures 15” between each step.
