Mancala introduced the concept of suspended modular ladder ways to the Australian market in 1994. In the following years Mancala has designed and installed more than 5.0km of service escape ladder ways in the civil and metaliferous mining industries. Ladders have been installed from both surface and underground locations, in vertical and inclined shafts with completed lengths exceeding 300m.


When combined with our other services, Mancala can offer clients the complete ladder way service comprising:

  • Design
  • Certification
  • Fabrication
  • Raise boring
  • Installation
  • Shaft ground support


In situations where a mechanised egress system is required, Mancala can design, fabricate and install winder and Alimak based systems.
