The Hoist UK IWL Internally Wired Ladder (LX Ladder) is a purpose built aluminium ladder beam designed to BS8118 - Structural use of aluminium, and fully load rated and certified. The design of the ladder offers the best possible strength to weight ratio while the top and bottom chords, and verticals have been specifically designed to allow for the maximum amount of usable chord for suspensions and loading purposes.
The LX Ladder is designed for suspension using the top chord and loaded using the bottom chord. The ladder is normally internally wired with either 15A round pin BS546 socket outlet commonly used for stage lighting equipment; it will also accept a 13A BS1363 rectangular pin (UK standard) socket outlet or 16A BS EN 60309 type socket outlet more commonly used for TV and film lighting equipment.
It comes with a robust steel end box which has been designed for fitting to the end of the ladder, providing a neat termination box where the internally wired circuits can connect with fixed wiring or multi-core cables via a standard 19 pin Socopex connector or a similar connector of your choice. It can also be supplied without internal cabling and sockets for use as a load rated scenery bar. The top and bottom chords of LX Ladder are 48mm diameter, so it can be use with all your existing standard fixtures.
We can also supply in a steel construction for installations whereby the increase in self weight would be beneficial and other sizes and lengths of the Internally Wired Ladder can be produced on application.
