Product Description

A pilot ladder is a specialized ladder used in the marine industry for the safe embarkation and disembarkation of pilots onto and from ships. Pilots are individuals with specialized knowledge and expertise in navigating and maneuvering ships in and out of ports, and they board vessels at sea to guide them safely into port.

Pilot ladders typically have 30 wooden or rubber steps and three spreaders, which are horizontal bars that keep the steps apart and provide stability. The distance between two neighboring steps is 330+/-20mm, which is standardized for safety and ease of use.

Pilot ladders are equipped in the embarking place of the life raft and boat, and are secured to the ship's side with strong ropes or wires. The ladder is then lowered to the water level and positioned to ensure safe boarding and disembarkation of pilots.

To ensure safety, all pilot ladders used for pilot transfer must be clearly identified with tags or other permanent markings, which enable identification of each appliance for the purposes of survey, inspection, and record keeping. A record is kept on the ship as to the date the identified ladder is placed into service and any repairs effected.

Overall, pilot ladders are an essential safety device in the marine industry, allowing pilots to board and leave vessels safely and efficiently.
