We provide an integrated approach, from conception
through development, engineering and production to
installation and maintenance, if needed. This enhances
accountability and ensures that already from the
concept stage, your solution integrates valuable field
experience. Our factory and designers use state of the
Custom constructions based on modular solutions
Our main strength are our modular solutions in five
product lines (see next page). We combine these modular
solutions to build custom constructions, while
avoiding special purpose development and the associated
costs, delays and risks. Our modular product lines
result from continuous development, many national and
international projects and over 35 years of expertise.
Independent and international
JOMY is an independent Belgian company, situated
north of Liège. We have experienced a steady and
healthy growth ever since our foundation in 1968 by Gilbert
Loix. Today, we are happy to discuss with you our
references in over 35 countries, all across the globe.

Custom constructions at an affordable price
Ons modulair productgamma maakt maatwerk zeer betaalbaar. Design, engineering en productiemethodes herbruiken verhoogt de efficiëntie en drukt bijgevolg de prijs voor uw constructie. Deze aanpak blijkt vaak concurrentieel, zowel bij lokale als internationale projecten.
In our work, every situation is different. Every construction is
adapted to the specific requirements of our client. Very often,
we can offer an optimal custom solution by combining our
modular solution packages. Sometimes, the project requires
a new development, which we than add to our modular solutions.
Continuous innovation is our main strength.
Aluminium constructies zijn quasi onderhoudsvrij. Onze after sales is daarom hoofdzakelijk gericht op uitbreidingen, aanpassingen of herstellingen na beschadiging. Daarbij is de modulariteit en de uitbreidbaarheid van onze constructies een onmiskenbaar voordeel.
Retractable ladders: the architect's choice
The JOMY retractable ladder offers an unobtrusive,
reliable and burglar proof solution for evacuation
and access. It is ideally suited for architecturally
- Unobtrusive, looks like a drainpipe;
- Deploys instantly from any number of evacuation levels;
- Burglar proof;
- Dependable and reliable with over 10,000 installations;
- With an optional fixed lifeline for secure access and working at height;
- At a reassuring price.
The JOMY ladder has been tested and approved
by many agencies across the globe:
- Vinçotte Belgium;
- Underwriters Laboratories USA;
- Japan Fire Service Inspection Institute;
- Bezirksamt Charlottenburg (Berlin) Abteilung
- Fédération Nationale des Sapeurs Pompiers Français;
- Direzione Generale della Protezione Civile e dei Servizi Antincendi, Ministero dell’Interno Italia;
- Fire Prevention Institute of Iceland;
- Civil Defense of Saudi Arabia;
In the same product line, we also offer these simpler
- The "Mini-JOMY" ladder, a light version to be used as an access ladder only;
- The "JOMY Stick" ambulant ladder, a portable retractable ladder.
Exterior staircases in aluminum
Exterior staircases are often considered the preferred
solution for collective evacuation or access. All our staircases are produced from anodized aluminum profiles.
The aluminum advantage
The use of the high-quality material aluminum,
despite its relatively high cost per weight, usually
leads to the lowest cost solution :
- Aluminum constructions are very light (only
about 1/3 of the weight of a similar steel construction),
which reduces the impact of the material
cost per weight on overall costs;
- Aluminum metalworking and materials handling
is very easy when compared to steel, reducing
- The JOMY stairs were conceived with transport
and assembly in mind (light, ready-to-assemble
meccano), reducing installation costs;
- Finally, aluminum constructions require no
maintenance (e.g. no protective painting) and
have a very long life span (over 30 years), further
reducing the total cost of ownership.
Moreover, aluminum allows distinctive options
- Stairs with a self-supporting structure, but also
- Burglar proof counterbalanced lower stairs;
- Many types of paneling of the stairs (perforated
sheets, vertical or horizontal profiles, etc.);
- Painting in any desired RAL color (polyester
- Many types of anti-slip steps, guardrails, second
handrail for children, access gate, etc.
Permanent ladders, with or without cage
Our permanent ladders are made from anodized
aluminum profiles. They are modular, based on
standardized elements and designed for easy
installation and wide application versatility.
The ladders are fully anodized. They feature wide
rungs with anti-slip upper side, rounded oblong
ladder uprights, seamless upright joining, no
sharp edges, round cage uprights fixed in the
center of the hoops, optional painting in any desired
RAL color (polyester powder coating), etc.
- Ladders with safety cage, with complete
hoops, 3/4 hoops or 1/2 hoops, or without
- Fall arrest system for ladders without safety
cage. The lifeline consists of a fixed aluminum
rail an a carriage (see "accessory safety
- Rest landings according to standards: landings
with changing ladder parts or folding
- Access: access ladder extensions, telescopic
handrail, horizontal access balcony or upper
balcony with rungs or steps to cross roof
edges, custom made access solutions, etc.;
- Burglar proof: lower counterbalanced sliding
ladder (weights built-in the ladder uprights),
- Fixing: many options to attach the ladder, either
parallel or perpendicular to the wall, at
distances ranging from 4" to 3'3" or 0.1 to 1 m;
Mobile acc ess systems
Our permanent access systems are composed
of working structures that move over a series of
fixed rails, which are attached to the building.
From the working structure one can safely access
the façade for cleaning or maintenance
purposes. The working structure is designed
to meet your specific requirements. It can take
many different forms, such as a vertical ladder
with or without movable platform, a reinforced
ladder (vertical, horizontal or sloped), a staircase,
a solid gantry, a gantry that in turn has moveable
The rails carry and guide the working
structure. The connection between the rails and
the moving parts is made by bogies. In most designs,
the movement of the working structure is
powered by human force only. JOMY offers two
types of rail structures: round and I-shaped.
The round rail is used as a "floor" for the structure
(the moving part rests on the rail). The I
rail is used as a "ceiling" for the structure (the
moving part hangs from the rail).
From concept to operations
Based on the desired principles of operation we
typically propose one or more designs, using our
experience to ensure the designs are practically
feasible and provide the desired ease of use.
We also produce custom platforms to be integrated
in third party building maintenance
Accessory safety solutions
Fall arrest systems
Lifelines can be used on all our constructions for
access or working at heights. The JOMY lifeline
consists of a fixed aluminum rail and a stepless
carriage. The user, wearing a safety belt, is attached
to the carriage, which in turn slides over
the fixed rail and blocks in case of a fall.
horizontal distances we also offer a fall arrest system
based on a stainless steel cable.
Custom made robust platforms for industrial use.
Telescopic ladders, easily deployed to evacuate from
one balcony to the next in apartment buildings.
Descender device using a cable and belt in combination
with a centrifugal brake to provide for individual
evacuation when no means for collective evacuation
