When it comes to roof access with a papapit, it can be a challenge to soundly/safely get on the deck of the roof without the use of a ground ladder to decend. That is of course unless you have an articulating platform.
In the past, we would use a roof ladder that was mounted to the inside of the outer fly of the aerial. The problem with this was that the roof ladder is a 16 footer and always longer and more cumbersome than what was really required. Nobody wants to be up on an aerial ladder and moving a 16' roofer around precariously just to get down 4-8'.
As a remedy, we recently added an additional 10' attic (folding) ladder to the aerial to overcome this challenge. Our shop, who does a great job, built a bracket to mount on the exterior of the bed/base section of the aerial that also carries a 12' hook. This should make our operations safer and more efficient for roof access from parapits.
What does your department or company use to access roof decks with deep parapits? What type of ladder/s and how are they mounted?
