Work at Height solutions

We are one of the leading manufacturers of access equipment for Work at Height.

We specialise in providing access and safety equipment for the construction, food, petrochemical, aeronautical and event management industries. Our services include everything from product design to delivery and erection.

FORTAL is one of the few companies to offer a complete range of access equipment. Whether you're looking for scaffolds or platforms, ladders or guardrails, FORTAL has the solution for you.

But it's our bespoke solutions that really make us stand out from the crowd. Our design team has proven time and again its ability to take on challenges and find solutions to even the most difficult problems. What is more, our highly-trained sales team collaborates closely with our designers to know our products inside out. Our products comply with all current French and international standards. 

FORTAL has established itself at both national and international level. Some of our more high-profile clients include:


Bouygues group

Vinci Construction


Exports currently account for 15% of our business. We plan on seeing that percentage grow, and it was with this in mind that we created our Export Department. With our high-performance production facilities and our unbeatable prices, not to mention our capacity to rapidly adapt to our clients' needs, FORTAL is ready to take on the world.

Bespoke Solutions

At FORTAL, we specialise in manufacturing innovative, one-of-a-kind solutions. We can tailor the dimensions and technical features of our products to your needs.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

At FORTAL, our desire to innovate drives us to constantly improve our way of manufacturing. Our facilities are entirely computerised and include laser machining, 7 and 8-axis CNC machining, timber cutting and milling and automatic saws. This technology enables us to manufacture with the utmost precision. We also have five robotic TIG welders capable of assembling any kind of structure from aluminium.

Quality Raw Materials

Extruded aluminium profile providing greater rigidity and durability

We use aluminium alloy 6106, which is recommended for marine and damp environments

Our hardware is DACROMET-coated to prevent galvanic coupling between the fasteners (guardrail brackets, for example) and the structure

Our strength? Our people

The FORTAL team comprises 120 experienced professionals. Our experts receive training all year round. Our welders, for example, are all certified to NF EN 287-2. Our highly competent sales team is there to guide you and answer any queries you may have.

Made in France

We manufacture over 90% of our products in France, at our production site in Barr, Alsace (67140). This not only affords you with instant traceability at any stage of the manufacturing process, but it also guarantees the quality of our products.
