Home / Ramps & Ladders
KP Fabrication & Welding is a leading manufacturer of top grade aluminium platform ladders and ramps that are designed to withstand corrosion and the extreme weather conditions of Western Australia. We take pride in our ability to customise our products based on our clients’ specifications, because we value your satisfaction above everything else.
We put a premium on the design and quality of all our products. We make sure that every single ladder, platform, ramp, gangway, or storage tool box we manufacture is easy to maintain and are made of only the highest-grade materials. We take pride in our design.
There are lots of metals that can be used to forge platform ladders and ramps, yet we choose aluminium for a lot of practical reasons, namely:
There is an almost infinite supply of aluminium, because it is naturally occurring and there is always an abundance of it in its raw form. It is also highly recyclable, so it can be reused for the same or different purposes over and over again, without losing its unique properties as it gets re-melted and reformed into something else. It bears a lot of similarities to steel, brass, copper, zinc, lead, and titanium, which means that it can serve the same functions as the aforementioned metals. It can conduct electric current, which makes it a good substitute for steel.
Aluminium is renowned for its strength and durability, without adding dead weight to any of its applications, due to it being lightweight. It weighs only a third of what steel weighs, making it a very suitable metal for trucks and other industrial vehicles used to transport very heavy materials regularly. Because it is a strong metal, it can be adapted to different applications by modifying its alloy composition so that it mimics the properties of other metals. Its ability to endure additional reinforcement makes it ideal for equipment that require the use of very strong metals.
When you use aluminium for your ramps and ladders, it will not be prone to corrosion – not even after a long time, thanks to its naturally-occurring protective oxide coating. You can assure that it won’t be ruined by rust, and will look and feel just like new despite its constant wear and tear. Furthermore, it can be improved by anodising, painting, or lacquering. Any application that requires protection and conservation can benefit greatly with the use of aluminium.
Aluminium is also very resistant against the elements. Rain or shine, it will stay hardy and reliable. Our ladders and ramps are designed to withstand the harsh WA weather conditions. We’ve tested it and proven the results.
Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat, even more so than copper, which is widely used in industrial applications. It is also highly reflective and does an excellent job at reflecting light and heat, so your ladders will stay visible even in poor lighting conditions.
