Ladder Buying Guide
Ladder Buying Guide by Titan Ladders
Which ladder should I buy? Our simple Ladder Buying Guide answers that very question and helps you choose the right ladder for trade or domestic use.
You should always choose the right type of ladder for the job at hand. This guide will help you choose between ladders, stepladders, work platforms or scaffold towers
A proper roof ladder is a must, it doesn’t matter how minor the repairs are. It has wheels on one side and hooks on the other. Stand on an ordinary ladder and push the wheeled side of your roof ladder up the roof. Then turn it over and slide the hooks down onto the ridge tiles to hold it in place.
If you need to work at height, but not on a roof, a simple extension ladder can be the solution. It allows you to safely reach working heights. Usually comprising two or three parts, the sections slid apart and locked into positions ready for use. This makes storage easy.
Step ladders and multi-purpose ladders are ideal for indoor tasks and light outdoor jobs, such as window cleaning, they generally reach up to three metres. Above that height, it’s best to use a ladder or scaffold tower.
