How to Choose a Rolling Ladder CLICK TO CHAT GET A QUOTE
There are four steps for picking out a rolling step ladder:
Step 1: Choose the width
The width of a rolling ladder should be as wide as the aisle permits while still leaving enough space for pedestrian traffic to pass around the base of the ladder.
Step 2: Choose the Tread Style
Grip Strut style is for sure footing when liquids are underneath or the area is not clean. The G-perf is for normal use where liquids are not present. It’s also easier to sit on or kneel on this style step.
Step 3: Choose the height
A convenient work height is generally 5-5½ feet above the top step, or Platform Height (PH). Each step has a 10" rise.
2- to 5-step ladders have retracting spring-loaded casters and steel reinforced rubber tipped feet.
6- to 16-step ladders have positive SAF-T locks with a release that secures the ladder when an individual steps on the first step. The caster carriage retracts allowing metal reinforced rubber-tipped feet to grip the floor, keeping the ladder user safe.
Step 4: Handrail Options
Single step ladders have no handrail
2- to 4-step ladders can be ordered with or without a handrail
5- to 16-step ladders are equipped with a handrail for safety
