There are several factors that will determine how you can use your ladder.

What is a ladder?

Industrial-type ladders are tools designed to reach high places. They are very simple instruments, two vertical poles attached to several horizontal crossbars. By climbing these rungs called steps or rungs, we can reach high places that we could not otherwise.

Over time the stairs have evolved. Today we find folding and multifunction ladders, the ladder allow you to change the shape and use them in various tasks, whether professional or domestic. Traditionally, they were made of wood, although today they can be made of aluminum, metal or fiberglass.

How do I choose the best ladder for my needs?


Ladders have general properties that, depending on how they are, can be more or less useful in different situations. In this sense, the first thing you should know is what you are going to use it for. As we have explained in the previous sections, the type and material will define its use.

But that's not all, of course. There are other factors that will determine the use that you can give your ladder, so here is a list of the characteristics you should look at to choose the ladder that best suits your needs:

·Weight: because you are going to work on them, you should pay attention to the weight they support. Some hold up to 150 kg, but the most common is that they support a little less. Remember that they must support your weight and that of your load.

·Length: a ladder of about 3 meters is more than enough for almost any job. Above all, in a domestic environment. For professional uses you have models that reach 10 meters.

·Rungs: there are stairs with simple, round or square steps. These are more dangerous since you can slip and are not very reliable. Professional ladders have wider treads and are covered with a non-slip system.
