Port Safety are the only supplier of these GRP safety ladders in the UK and the alternative would be to replace the Harbour ladders with steel ladders or galvanised and although Port Safety ladders are not the cheapest, these ladders are the best design and most durable for maritime conditions and will stand the test of time. The ladders are part of the funding package awarded by the Marine Management Organisation under ENGFaSS2938 and have undergone the MMO procurement process which is consistent with the councils own procurement requirements and the MMO have awarded Port Safety as the supplier of the Harbour Ladders.
