Convenient, safe, easy access to Mezzanine areas. Stores flat against wall when not in use. Mezzalad makes use of the space you have paid for!
Mezzalad features a space saving mechanism which allows it to be stored flat against the wall when not in use, and is bought to the operative position with a simple lift and pull action.
At 600 mm, the step width provides comfortable access, and two hand rails are included for safe and easy climbing. The side rails are lengthened to provide hand railing extending 900 mm beyond the upper floor, enabling safe step through access to the upper floor while maintaining a hand hold.
A Safety Gate is provided at the upper floor level to maintain the integrity of the perimeter railing. All risks associated with operating the gate while standing on the ladder are eliminated as the gate may be opened or closed with the operator standing fully on the upper floor.
The ladder is fastened at the upper floor level. Installation is simple with two universal brackets allowing fastening to be made either to the floor or wall and the ladder may be secured with bolts or screws.
Mezzalad is produced in two separate series to suit all floor heights between 1.31 to 4.7 meters. The VH series available in four sizes suits the most popular floor heights between 2.33 to 3.225 meters. The CM series (manufactured to order) is available in twelve sizes to suit the remaining floor heights in the range. Please Note: CM series is available in Asia Pacific only.
Mezzalad is designed to comply with relative elements of Australian Standard AS 1892:1.1996 for portable metal ladders.

The following information is a guide. For further help, consult your dealer.
Point of Attachment.
Any structure being part of a building must comply with relevant building codes. Any independent structure such as a free standing mezzanine must be capable of withstanding a horizontally applied force of 120 kg in any direction at the point of attachment.
Stockmaster Mezzalad adapts to any floor height within a given range by automatically adjusting the angle of incline between 60 and 70 degrees to the floor. Service heights are given in the table below.
The Operating Space.
Pull Out Clearance
In the open or use position Mezzalad requires space for the user to safely mount and dismount the ladder. When standing in front of the ladder the minimum desirable distance between the base of the ladder and any wall or obstruction behind the user is 0.8 meters and should not be less than 0.6 meters.
Pull out dimensions are given in the specifications table in the Dimensions section of this site. For use in confined areas, check the available operating space and consult your dealer who can provide you with the exact pull out dimension for your installation.
When moving from the open to the closed or stored position the height of the ladder above the upper floor will increase. The increase in height will depend on the angle of incline of the ladder to the floor when in the open or use position. The maximum Stored Height above the Upper Floor is given in the specifications table in the Dimensions section of this site. For use in confined areas, check the available operating space and if necessary consult your dealer who can provide you with the exact Stored Height above Upper Floor dimension for your installation.
Upper Floor Intrusion
When moving from the closed to the open or use position the ladder will intrude into the upper floor area. The degree of intrusion will depend on the angle of incline of the ladder to the floor when in the open or use position. The minimum and maximum Intrusion into Upper Floor dimensions are given in the specification drawings in the Dimensions section of this site. If necessary consult your dealer who can provide you with the exact Upper Floor Intrusion dimension for your installation.
Mezzalad is designed for personnel access between floor levels including access to Mezzanines, Lofts, Loading Docks and Storage Areas above Factory Offices and Tea Rooms etc. The product is not intended for use to convey large or heavy items between floor levels and conveyance of items must be limited to small and light items that can be carried in one hand and permit a three point contact when ascending or descending the ladder. Note: This product does not substitute for stair access where required under the building code.
