GIOTTO swim ladder
GIOTTO is a light, fully customizable carbon fiber swim ladder with removable handles. All fitting positions are adjustable, including the distance between steps, the distance between the top step and the deck, and ladder width. Easy to stow at any size, long GIOTTO ladders come in two parts – three with the top handles—and include special, adjustable V-shaped hull spacers for stability.
Exit Carbon designed two big (70 cm) grips for the ladder that are easily reachable from the boat deck or while climbing the ladder. “Typically, this type of design is only seen on heavy fixed ladders on land.” said Giuseppe Bottacin, Exit Carbon founder and CEO.
Yachters have an amazing range of size options when customizing GIOTTO. From the number of steps (from 3 to 10) to the ladder length (1500 to 3000 mm) and the ladder width (350 to 700 mm), GIOTTO fits a wide range of yachts.
Exit Carbon manufactures GIOTTO to be light yet strong using epoxy resin pre-impregnated carbon fiber fabrics cured at high pressure and high temperature in an autoclave. Featuring pultruded carbon fiber tubes and aluminum alloy protected with hard anodisation, GIOTTO can hold up to salt, humidity, and corrosion.
“We are especially proud that our GIOTTO received a DAME Design Award Special Mention,” said Bottacin. “We even paid special attention to the curve of the foot when we designed the steps-- this ladder truly marries form and function.”
Italian design firm, Exit Carbon, will showcase their GIOTTO swim ladder in Amsterdam at METSTRADE November 15-17, 2016.
Superyachters familiar with the company’s reputation for elegant design will appreciate the addition to the Exit Carbon family of boating products.
