Since its creation in 2010, our flagship product Safescape Laddertube has been steadily growing in numbers across Australia and the world.

Launched in 2010, Safescape Laddertube has seen steady growth across Australia and in other parts of the world.

Laddertube has become popular due to a flexible system that is suitable for many use-cases. It is not prone to rusting, and the enclosed ladder makes emergency escape procedures much safer than exposed steel ladders.

At the time of this article’s publishing, we have reached another milestone, with 48,000 metres (or 48km) of Laddertube installed around the world. This is a major milestone for the product; a sign that people are recognising the practicality and safety of Laddertube.

In the next ten years Safescape expects to improve and develop even more safety technologies and advancements for the mining industry.
