  • Delivery Info

    Orders placed before 2.00pm Monday to Friday will be dispatched same day for next working day delivery to UK addresses.

    Orders placed after 2.00pm will be treated, for the purposes of delivery, as having been placed the next working day.

    Working days are defined as Monday Friday (excluding bank and public holidays) therefore any orders placed after 2.00pm on Friday will not be processed until Monday.

    All delivery timescales are approximate

    Whilst we will give you our carriers tracking details, we regret that precise delivery times cannot be specified at the present time. Morning deliveries (pre 12.30pm) are available under our premium delivery service and details of costs can be found in the checkout.

    Please note there are a small number of postcodes, usually in remote rural areas, to which we may not be able to deliver within the provided timescale.

  • F.A.Q.

    What is the total reach height on the ladders?

    We give an approximate reach height, along with other detailed dimensions of all sizes at the bottom of the webpage in the Price and Product Dimensions section. However, for a more accurate measurement, you can add the height of the user to the height of the platform.

    Ive read online that you are meant to stand 3 or 4 rungs from the top on ladders, but in the photo the guy is standing on the top platform. Is this safe?

    Yes it is completely safe, because it has a platform and knee rail for additional support. On conventional steps or ladders, where there isnt any added support, you would need to stand further down.

    Is the ladder suitable for outdoor use?

    Absolutely. The ladder is tested and certified to a trade standard so it can certainly withstand the demands of working outdoors too.

    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.

Safety tips for using platform ladders

Every home needs a platform ladder to cover the jobs that need doing, so it is important to know how to use a platform safely. Below are a few things you can do to ensure you use your platform ladder in a safe and correct manner.

  • Always make sure that the ladder is placed on a solid level surface, checking that each foot is fully rested on the ground
  • Check that the platform is properly engaged before climbing the ladder
  • Don’t use the ladder if the spreader is missing, loose, or damaged
  • Regularly check ladder feet for excessive wear and tear and don’t use if their condition has deteriorated significantly
  • When ascending or descending the ladder you must be facing it and have three limbs in contact with the ladder at all times
  • Never overreach when using the ladder, you should ensure your body is centred within the ladder stiles
  • Always climb down and be fully off the ladder before moving it, don’t attempt to make the ladder walk even if you only want to move it slightly
  • Prior to moving the ladder, you should make sure that all tools and other items have been removed
  • Don’t use a platform stepladder as a non-self-supporting ladder (leaning it against a wall for example)
  • Never climb from one ladder to another
  • Do not try to use the ladder as a trestle as they are not designed for that type of use
  • Never use your metal platform ladder near any possible electrical hazards

Using your platform ladder safely helps to ensure it stays in the best possible condition so you can get continued use out of it for many years to come. With six different sizes available you can get the perfect platform ladder that will best suit your requirements.
