To answer this question we must know the characteristics of both materials. Aluminum is an electrically conductive material, high load force, resistant and light; so it should not be used in work around electricity. On the other hand, fiberglass is a material: non-conductive of electricity, high load-bearing strength and resistant to corrosion; being used to work around electricity. Looking at the characteristics of both materials it is clear that the factor to take into account is whether to work around electricity or not.

Usually for domestic uses, aluminum ladders are used, since their price is around 30% lower than fiberglass ones and it is not used near electricity, whereas fiberglass ladders are used in the industrial sector, mainly by electric or telecommunications companies whose jobs are around electricity, in addition to receiving heavy use.
