Access System Design, Installation, and Certification

The design of a roof access system takes careful planning and understanding of the Australian standards, Legislation, and Codes of Practice to ensure all exposed fall edges have been taken care of and the user is not at risk of falling greater than 2m. That's why our clients turn to SAS Projects, we take full responsibility for your access systems – let the experts deal with the compliance & legislation.

The design of a ladder access system is based on 3 basic principles:
- How often the system will be used (frequent, periodic, infrequent)
- The types of maintenance services required on the roof (will tools and supplies be needed)
-The physical limitations of space and the design of the building or application.

SAS Projects' team of highly trained and experienced height safety system designers will assess your site's specific needs and create a system that complies with AS1657:2018 and the Working at Heights Associations (WAHA) industry code for stairways and ladders.

We provide ongoing recertification and maintenance plans in line with height safety regulations to ensure continued compliance and safety.
