Climbing Devices by Winola Industrial
Winola Industrial Inc. are the original manufactures of climbing ladders and accessories that are the industry standard for utility structures around the world for decades. Our Ladders are ideal for use on steel poles, towers and any other application where “bucket” trucks and other conventional methods won’t work, or need to be supplemented. They provide both increased versatility and security, as they can be removed when your work is done, or can be left in place for perminent access.

CL-1: Galvanized Climbing Ladder Assembly, 3′ – 10 1/2″ Leg Spacing (“odd” spacing)
CL-2: Weathering Steel Climbing Ladder Assembly, 3′ – 10 1/2″ Leg Spacing (“odd” spacing)
CL-3: Galvanized Climbing Ladder Assembly, 2′ – 6″ Leg Spacing ( “even” spacing)
CL-4: Weathering Steel Climbing Ladder Assembly, 2′ – 6″ Leg Spacing (“even” spacing)
Standard Working Ladder Types -Steps are adjacent, proving more handfolds/footholds for working.
WL-1: Galvanized Working Ladder Assembly, 3′ – 10 1/52″ Leg Spacing (“odd” spacing)
WL-2: Weathering Steel Working Ladder Assembly, 3′ – 10 1/2″ Leg Spacing (“odd” spacing)
WL-3: Galvanized Working Ladder Assembly, 2′ – 6″ Leg Spacing (“even” spacing)
WL-4: Weathering Steel Working Ladder Assembly, 2′ – 6″ Leg Spacing (“even” spacing)
CL-1, CL-2, WL-1 and WL-2 are more common designs
Custom Ladders: We’ve built a large variety of custom climbing devices for our customers. We can fabricate brackets or attachments to adapt to your specific fall-prevention, fall-arrest, or other safety hardware. We can work with you to retrofit ladders to your existing structures or replace outdated climbing steps. All of our climbing devices are built with the same emphasis on quality, fast turn-around and top-notch service that goes into every ladder we make.
Ladder Clips– We mass produce ladder clips specifically designed for mounting our ladders to steel poles, towers, or any other structure, Avaliable in ASTM A36 (weld to structures to be galvanized), or in ASTM A588 (weathering steel).
Steps Bolts– We frequently carry a large inventory of step bolts, both weathering steel and galvanized. all are made in USA, custom knurled for slip resistance and charpy impact-tested with test reports available.
