Here we are talking about the key thing to consider when trying to choose the right ladder for your needs. Hope to help to you make the safest and most appropriate purchase for your needs.


Fiberglass

Fiberglass ladders are non-conductive, so it's safe to use them near power lines and electrical wiring. They are also durable, weather-resistant, flame-resistant and built to last many years. Because fiberglass ladders are so durable, resistant to the elements and heavier than aluminum ladders, you will feel increased stability when using them. Fiberglass ladders are generally more expensive than aluminum.


Aluminum

Aluminum ladders are lightweight, making them easy to transport, and are non-corrosive. They should not be used near power lines or electrical wiring because they are made of metal and conduct electricity. Using this type of ladder around electricity would endanger your life. 

DO NOT USE ALUMINUM LADDERS NEAR ELECTRICITY.
