What are the storage dimensions of the ladder?
This is dependent on which size you choose. Take a look at the Specification Sheet in our ‘Fact Sheets’ tab. This has pretty much every measurement you will need.
How far away from the wall should the base of the ladder be?
This depends on how high you are going. The rule is that for every 4m you go up, you will be 1m away from the wall at the base. Take a look at our Ladder Safety Guide in the ‘Fact Sheets’ tab for more details.
Is the stabiliser bar removable?
Yes it is, for storage or transport purposes. When using the ladder, the stabiliser should be attached at all times.
Can I remove the sections, to use as a single ladder?
You can’t separate the back 2 sections, as these are connected by a safety strap but, you are able to remove the top section on models up to 6.26m. To keep in line with the latest EN131 standard, the top sections of the 7.11m and 7.96m model cannot be removed.
I need to reach my gutters, which ladder is best?
There is no set height, as this can vary depending on the building. On a standard 2 storey property, you are probably looking at a height of between 5-6m. However, please measure properly before purchasing.
What is the best way of measuring the height of my house?
A couple of simple methods would be to measure the height of one of the bricks and multiply this by how many there are between ground and where you need to get to. You could also measure the floor to ceiling height on both floors, and simply add a little bit on, to account for the space between the two floors.
Can the ladders be stored outside?
Yes they can. The ladders are made from aluminium, so they will not rust if left outside. However if you are storing this way, it might not be a bad idea to put a cover over them.
