ASCEND Fabrication LLC is a custom fabricator of high quality aluminum fixed ladders. Our ladder products represent “a higher standard” in fixed access ladders utilized in commercial, industrial and municipal applications. Commonly used for building roof and structure access, Ascend Fab ladders are recognized as the heaviest aluminum ladder design available. Constructed entirely of certified structural aluminum shapes with stainless steel hardware, Ascend Fab ladder construction is highly superior compared to competitor products that offer painted and galvanized carbon steel ladders. Aluminum construction requires no maintenance and no future painting.  Utilizing a 1.5” diameter corrugated rung with aluminum structural channel stringers, the Ascend Fab design utilizes the best design parameters and fabrication standards available in the industry. In the field, Ascend fixed ladders are preferred as a “product of choice” for their ease of installation in handling and attachment.
