AM-BOSS Access Ladders Pty Ltd were first to manufacture pull-down access ladders that complied with the Building Code of Australia (BCA).  With the new National Construction Code (NCC) being developed, the CSIRO ceased its Appraisal scheme officially in December 2009.

The National Construction Code (NCC) was developed to incorporate all on-site construction requirements into a single code.   The NCC comprises the BCA (Volumes One and Two), and the Plumbing Code of Australia as Volume Three, into its series and is the national technical document which sets the standards of building work in Australia, including non-residential buildings.

The NCC is a joint initiative of all three levels of government in Australia, and was established by an inter-government agreement signed by the Commonwealth, States and Territories. The compliance of building products and systems with the BCA is provided through the CodeMark scheme. Products accredited through this scheme are automatically recognised nationally as being compliant with the Code in Australia and New Zealand.

As a leader in the industry, AM-BOSS is the only company to offer a pull-down access ladder that complies to the Building Code of Australia and is CodeMark Certified.

Relevant legislation requires building control authorities to accept CodeMark Certified products.

Antarctica -Research Stations

The Scientific research bases in Antarctica have a lot of delicate equipment that needs to be stored out of the way, but they're also very cramped.  Using AM-BOSS 'Access-Boss' access ladders frees up more space.

Export to Middle East, USA and many other countries

AM-BOSS access ladders have proven to be very popular in the Middle East, where houses are traditionally built taller and on a smaller floor space than Australian Houses.  They have proven to be a very practical solution for saving floor and storage space.

HMAS Cerberus

The design of military bases is access space-conscious, with this in mind, the RAN uses AM-BOSS 'Access-Boss' ladders in order to access infrequently used upper levels, and storage spaces.  These fold neatly out of the way, which allows for less restricted foot traffic in the corridors.

Control Towers at Airport

AM-BOSS access ladders are at many Airports, here and overseas, to give safe access to roof tops on control towers for technicians to service the many antennas etc.

A handy person can usually do all the work, but if you are too busy installation can be arranged.  We also do a lot of installations in commercial buildings where access is required for the service person to check air-conditioning systems on top of the roof etc.

Pick the right location you want for your access ladder system, it's not necessary to install this new unit in the same place as your existing manhole, if it is in the wrong place.  Easy access top and bottom should be considered.




Manufactured in die-cast aluminium and manually operated from either the top or bottom.


The electric stair system is beautifully engineered and made to order in diecast aluminium, also available in powder coat finish in many colours, as an Option.

The unit is fully assembled and is easily fixed to a concrete slab by dyna bolts or similar, or screwed to a timber framed opening.  Electric work is minimal, plug into power point, if switches are used some wiring needs to be done.
