Aluminium telescopic ladders are a great aid for both indoor and outdoor tasks, with their extendable design being safe, compact and easy to carry about. Extension ladders are equally as portable, comprising of two sections which slide to adjust ladder length.
Tripod ladders are ideal for garden use during pruning, hedge cutting and during the picking season in orchards and fruit plots. The tripod design means that a user's weight is directed downwards and outwards, making this choice more stable than a conventional step ladder.
Multi-purpose combination ladders are the style of choice for many DIYers and professionals alike. These versatile designs can be purchased in a range of 3-way, 5-way and 12-way combinations. Combination platform ladders are extremely useful for work in stairwells or over different levels.
Allowing safe and easy access to your property's upper levels, loft ladders are available in folding timber and aluminium designs. Aluminium loft ladders are constructed in multiple sliding sections with a pivot arm for smooth and easy access to your loft space. All loft ladders have a handrail for added safety and a shoot bolt for fastening.
Fold-away step stools and step ladders are compact solutions for all areas of the home and workplace. Such designs have wide steps with rugged non-slip treads and are made from high quality powder coated steel.
Many ladders are also purpose-built for commercial use. Single and double section roof ladders are popular choices for professional use, made with a trade strength box section construction with rubber bearer bars to prevent damage to roof tiles. The feet of aluminium ladders are often fitted with plastic tips to keep you stable and to protect the floor beneath.
