The Atlas Tactical Ladder (ATL) is a high strength aluminum collapsible Litter/Ladder/Bridge system ideal for jump, maritime, and urban lean-to and hook and climb tactical access mission requirements. The ATL can be joined to reach heights of 15-18ft. Built on a core Atlas Devices ladder technology backbone, the ATL system is a true multi-mission system. It combines the packable, height-conformable strength and tailor-ability of a ladder and bridge with the speed, efficiency, and security of a vertical/horizontal hoist-able patient litter. The integrated handle designs enable effective patient manipulation and longer duration carries.
