Ladders are not just the extendable variety that take up huge amounts of room in our garages. Ladders come in all shapes and sizes and many we almost forget about – until they’re needed of course. Whether you live in a studio flat or a country mansion, the need for a ladder never ceases to exist.
As the festive season begins to hit its peak with Christmas now in full swing, BPS Access Solutions takes a look at our own homes – where we’re likely to spend some time relaxing during the festivities and discuss just how important and necessary our trustworthy ladders are.
We’ll start off indoors and look at the loft – often overlooked and forgotten until access is needed not just to retrieve Christmas decorations but also to store items from childhood or just when you fancy de cluttering. An essential requirement to gain safe access in and out of your loft is a loft ladder. Which loft ladder you select will depend on how often you access your loft and what space you have available in your home. BPS Access Solutions have a loft ladder to suit all access needs whether this be a sliding, concertina, wooden or a grand loft ladder. A grand loft ladder is designed for people who use their loft on a regular basis, the ladder is similar to using real stairs!
Upstairs in your home, every bedroom should have its own escape ladder. They key to a good escape ladder is ease of use in a distressing emergency situation such as a house fire where usual exit routes may be blocked. Our escape ladder is the best available. It is easy to throw and made from tangle free, durable flame resistant materials. It is capable of holding 3 people at any one time on the ladder and folds up into a very compact design making it perfect for under bed storage. An escape ladder is a ‘must have’ essential for every home.
An essential requirement in every home is a step ladder. Unfortunately many householders still opt for standing on a chair or other raised platform for accessing higher areas. With accidents most likely to occur in the home and with more than 5000 people killed following an accident in the home every year it is an extremely wise investment to ensure that you have a safe step ladder in your home to minimise the risk of accidents. Our platform step ladders are the best on the market and come with an integral platform and high safety rail regardless of how many treads on the ladder. Our stepladders are supplied with any number of rungs from 2 up to 8 so you can be sure we have the right step ladder available for your home. We also recommend the use of a step ladder leveller. This ingenious solution provides adjustment for uneven ground, smooth and slippery surfaces.
