Unobtrusive, looks like a drainpipe
Thanks to its esthetics, the JOMY ladder integrates seamlessly in modern and classic architectures. It is generally considered the “architect’s choice” for unobtrusive and effective evacuation.
The JOMY Ladder is very discreet. It looks like a drainpipe (a metal column of 4” by 4” or 10 by 10 cm). It is manufactured in anodized aluminum with natural mat finishing. Optionally, the exterior parts of the ladder can be painted in any RAL color.
Deploys instantly from any number of evacuation levels
The ladder is easy to use and opens in seconds.
An opening handle is fitted at all evacuation levels. A quarter turn of this handle, and the ladder deploys instantly over its complete height. The ladder is internally counterbalanced by springs, resulting in a soft deployment, and an easy closing after use. A guard rail provides extra security.
If used for evacuation purposes, the ladder is usually installed without opening mechanism at the ground level, to prevent opening by unauthorized persons. Alternatively, for example for access purposes, the opening handle can be installed at ground level, but protected by a padlock (which doesn’t prevent opening of the ladder from other levels).
The ladder can be equipped with an opening sensor, connected to the building management system.
Dependable and reliable with over 20,000 installations
The JOMY ladder has been installed in royal palaces and embassies, but also in apartment buildings, offices, schools, hotels, etc. Over 20,000 buildings all over the world have been equipped with a JOMY ladder.
The JOMY ladder and its opening mechanism have been submitted to laboratory tests and have proven their behavior in very harsh environments, at extreme temperatures (to minus 40°F / 40 °C) and humidity levels.
Every ladder rung supports a charge of over 1,000 lb or 450 Kg. The ladder posts have been successfully tested at charges of over 11,000 lb or 5,000 Kg.
With an optional fixed lifeline for secure access and working at height
The use of the lifeline fall arrest system eliminates the need for a safety cage, and is even increasingly preferred over the use of a safety cage.
The lifeline consists of a fixed aluminum rail and a stepless carriage. The user, wearing a safety belt, is attached to the carriage, which in turn slides over the rail and blocks in case of a fall.
