 COMAR EMBARKATION/DEBARKATION LADDER​   Commonly known as the COMAR/Debarkation Ladder!

The COMAR Embarkation/Debarkation Ladder replaces the obsolete old style Jacob's ladder and eliminates unreliable marlin seizings (whipping).
USCG approved Embarkation/Debarkation Ladder (up to 320 feet)
Steps are secured to side ropes using stainless steel fasteners and patented COMAR Wedge Assembly.
Rope: 2-1/4' circ. (3/4") 3 strand soft feel of polyester rope with an ultra strong core of a color that contrasts with the polyester. This extra strong core ELIMINATES BOUNCE and acts as an early warning sign of wear (14,000 lbs. minimum breaking strength). All our ladder ropes are manufactured by SAMSON: "The Strongest Name in Rope."  
​Steps:  Made of buoyant high impact safety orange impregnated elastomer.  Steps are resistant to ultra violet light and are constructed with internal tubular and patented internal collar reinforcement.  The top of each step has a raised diamond pattern coated with non-skid abrasive grit and set back from the edges to eliminate citing of the hands while rigging the ladder on deck or a novice accidentally grabbing the step.

Definition of Debarkation Ladder:  The ladder shall be efficient for the purposes of enabling persons to disembark from the ship and embark to lifeboats, life rafts or other life savings appliances.

All steps, assembly hardware and rope are the same with all COMAR ladders. 

​Ladders are tested at the time of assembly with a force exceeding 2,000 pounds.

To Order, Specify:
Length:  Overall length is measured from the top step to the bottom step.  For pilot ladders it includes a spreader on or about the fifth step. We are happy to help by providing a free drawing to assist you when calculating length.
