The first was to recognise and make use of the newly emerging European Standard BS-EN1147, Portable Ladders for Fire Service Use.
The second was to start re-equipping their respective fleets with ladders that both complied with a recognisable standard and are fit for specialist use.
As a result our range of ladder models is growing in response and currently includes Double Extension in Rope Pull and Manual, Triple Extension in Rope Pull and Manual as well as specialist Folding Roof Ladders.
Some of our ladder safety features include Auto Arrest Device to lock the ladder sections in place should the hauling rope be inadvertently released, Automatic Pawls on our larger ladders to give maximum foot area within the pawled ladder section, deep rung tread for maximum boot grip, swivel feet where requested, the ability to ‘split’ ladders apart if the situation warrants it and a weight suitable for small crew vehicles.

Once the important decision has been made to invest in our ladders and they have been installed correctly onto your vehicles, ‘Care & Maintenance’ of your valuable asset is the next priority.
To assist you in maintaining your ladders, Centurion Fire & Rescue Equipment supply every ladder we build with a personal tracking number plus a Certificate of Test that has an additional Test and Inspection Log on the back so regular inspections & annual proof tests can be logged to assist with your asset cost tracking.
Our ARION Ladder Care and Maintenance Manual has been designed to answer questions & assist with your in-house maintenance.
