How will I know which fibreglass ladder is right for my purposes?
Explore our range of fibreglass ladders to see which one will suit your needs best. Each one will have a description of its features so you can understand the differences between them.
Are fibreglass ladders better than aluminium?
It’s not so much a question of which type of ladder is better because it depends on what you will need to use it for. Fibreglass tends to be stronger than aluminium and is more suited to trade work due to being more weather and electricity resistant. There are advantages to both types of ladder but for the workplace fibreglass tends to be the more popular choice. However, if you need a lighter weight, more affordable ladder then aluminium is still a very good choice.
Do I need to check a fibreglass ladder regularly?
As is the case with all ladders, it is good practice to check your equipment before every use for any damage. Whilst fibreglass ladders can be stronger and more durable, they are not exempt from this important check.
How can I check a fibreglass ladder?
Smaller cracks on fibreglass ladders are not easy to spot by a quick visual inspection. Therefore, you should run your fingertips across the fibreglass to feel for any small cracks or splits. Also, you should:
- Check for loose or missing rivets
- Inspect the feet of the ladder as well as their support channels for any cracks
- Check around the rungs of the ladder
- Inspect the side rails for breakdown of fibreglass, specifically in the corners
Can I leave a fibreglass ladder outside?
Due to their extra weight fibreglass ladders can be difficult to carry around so it can be tempting to leave them outside for a period of time. However, it’s important that you don’t do this and ensure you store your fibreglass ladder indoors. This is because when exposed to direct sunlight for too long fibreglass materials can break down. Therefore, the quality of the ladder will deteriorate, and ladder safety will be compromised. No matter how good or expensive your ladder may have been, if not stored correctly, it will break down when in prolonged UV light.
How can fibreglass ladders benefit specialist trades?
Fibreglass is non-marking, warmer to the touch, and retains its smooth surface which makes it ideal for trades like painting and decorating. Its durability and low maintenance mean it is a great choice for a range of industries.
