Russian term or phrase: кольцевая лестница
Это вертикальная лестница, которая устанавливается вдоль стенки резервуара для обслуживающего персонала. Я знаю как она выглядит, но не знаю, как обозвать по английски. "circular/ring stairs/ladders" или вообще по другому?

spiral ladderwell


Explanation:
If a ladder is mobile, then a ladderwell certainly is not. Staircase cannot be used here, as you'll only find those in homes.

--------------------------------------------------

\"circular\" cannot work, either, as it suggests the stairs ended exactly where they began; \"spiral\" means up (or down, depending upon which way you\'re travelling) in a circular, or spiral fashion.

and lastly, i\'ll concede that \"ladderwell\" is reserved for military use; \"stairwell\" is the preferred civilian term...so the alternate choice is \"spiral stairwell\"
