Treadwell ACCESS SYSTEMS - Grating, Handrails & Ladders

The safe access and egress of personnel in elevated areas, corrosive areas and confined spaces or all of these are one of the biggest challenges faced in many industries. While there have been various conventional solutions offered, it was in the early 1990’s that Treadwell recognised the limitations of the materials utilised in existing structures as compared with the versatility, durability and non-corrosive properties of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) products available. It was from there on that Treadwell’s remarkable innovation in composites lead to the inception of the ACCESS SYSTEMS range.

Treadwell Access Systems are manufactured using FRP composites, with the sole purpose of offering you light weight, high strength, non-corrosive and non-conductive solutions to face many confronting situations. Due to our extremely flexible designs, Treadwell’s EX-Series® Grating, EX-Series® Handrails and EX-Series® Ladders can help you to achieve the ultimate solution to your own access and egress challenges through the effective application of composite materials. The implementation of our ACCESS SYSTEMS will ensure that you experience greater asset longevity, lower maintenance costs and remarkably effortless installation.

The benefits of FRP have been harnessed in many different sectors, saving departments and organisations around the world significant amounts in maintenance and repair budgets. Public infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, marine and industrial processing are just a few of the industries that are currently utilising Treadwell’s FRP ACCESS SYSTEMS to realise their own substantial economic advantage.

The Treadwell ACCESS SYSTEMS range

Our EX-Series® FRP grating is designed for use in a multitude of environments where the non-slip grating may be subjected to continuous spills, electrical dangers, fumes, splashes or submersions. In such demanding environments, FRP grating will outperform the standard traditional grating options. Our FRP grating is available in standard panels or can be customised to specification.


Treadwell responds to the growing demand for a handrail system that is easy-to-install, maintenance free and can withstand most conditions with its RailEX® handrails. Applying our extensive experience in FRP Solutions, the RailEX® handrails were developed as a safe and reliable handrail system.


The exceptional alternative from Treadwell to metallic ladders and cage systems that provides all the benefits of FRP including excellent corrosion resistance and electrical transparency.
