What Type of Ladder Do I Need?
When you're in the market for a new ladder, finding the right ladder for your needs may be overwhelming at first. With so many styles and features to choose from, it’s no wonder. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular styles.
Step ladders are a classic type of ladder that you can find in most businesses and garages across the country. The convenient A-frame design means that it’s self-supported and they’re available in multiple heights to suit the work you do. Step ladders may also have additional features including platforms, guardrails, or a telescoping frame. Step ladders are ideal for indoor projects.
Multipurpose ladders are designed to convert into several styles of ladders, making them a versatile option for many applications. Some of these multifaceted ladders can convert from step ladders to extension ladders to twin stepladders and more. Multi-use ladders can also fold into compact sizes, saving you space while not in use.
Extension ladders generally extend in 12” increments and are an adjustable version of a straight ladder. Extension ladders need a surface to rest against for stability and are often used for outdoor jobs. When purchasing an extension ladder, consider how high you need to reach before making your final selection.
While aluminum ladders are durable, always remember that they conduct electricity, while fiberglass ladders do not. It’s also important to note that any ladder, when wet, can conduct electricity—even wood ladders.
