If you are like most people, using some kinds of ladders around the house is a weekly, if not daily event, ranging from tasks as basic as retrieving can goods from a top cabinet shelf to checking roof gutters for leaks. And because so many house hold accidents involve ladders (it's estimated that more than 2 million occur each year, when those not reported or not requiring a doctor's visit are included), you'll be wise to read on to learn about all the various types of ladders used around the home, and how to use them correctly.
STEP 1: CHOOSE THE HEIGHT
Choose the correct height of the ladder that you need for your job. The maximum reach for several ladder heights assuming a 1.7m person with a vertical reach of another 0.3m. The maximum safe working height is typically 1.75m above the maximum allowable climb/standing height.
STEP 2: CHOOSE THE APPLICATION
If you are going to use ladders for commercial purposes, you must use Industrial rated ladders with a minimum load rate of 130 kg.
However, if you are going to use ladders at a private dwelling for non-commercial purposes, you can use Domestic ladders. Domestic ladders should have a maximum load rating of 95 kg.
STEP 3: CHOOSE LADDER STYLE
Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury. The illustration above describes the different ladder styles available to aid you in choosing the right
STEP 4: CHOOSE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MANEUVERABILITY
The larger the ladder, the bigger, bulkier and heavier they usually become. When selecting your ladder, consider how easy it will be to store or transport. The compact extension ladder goes a long way to improving maneuverability and ease of storage. Instead of two overlapping sections making up a standard 16-foot extension ladder, a compact extension ladder uses three shorter overlapping sections, making it easier to store and transport.
STEP5: CHOOSE THE MATERIAL
Today’s ladders are available in lightweight and strong materials, not like the wood ladders of yesterday. Modern ladders typically come in aluminum and fiberglass and usually have rungs that are serrated for slip resistance. In addition to the advantage of being light, fiberglass ladders have non-conductive side rails for added safety when working around electricity.
Extension ladders become more and more popular and is chosen by the public. An extension ladder is a design that allows a series of single-section ladders to be deployed in a cascading manner, allowing higher ladder reach in a ladder that requires less storage space. Typically, an extension ladder has two single sections, but the compact extension ladder, such as that made by Werner, Co. comes with a three-section design providing easier storage and requiring less storage length. Standard extension ladders are available in aluminum, fiberglass, and wood. Compact extension ladders are available in fiberglass and aluminum.
