Not bothered? Can’t see that it makes any difference? Well it really does, because the classifications relate to their safe working load. And of course safety should be paramount to any company buying ladders for its personnel or indeed for personal use. Use a ladder outside of the parameters for which it has been designed and built and you are dicing with death – possibly even literally.
It’s an old adage but you really do get what you pay for. Anyone buying a ladder designed for DIY’ers because it is cheaper will probably find that it won’t last the course if used regularly.
Buy A Ladder has been established since 2006 and our passion and drive to provide our customers with the very best ladders, service and pricing is still as strong today.
When buying a ladder it is important you estimate the height you will be accessing with the ladder. A good rule of thumb is to add 3 feet to the ladder height. For example, if you want to reach a 9 foot ceiling, use a 6ft ladder. A 20 foot ladder will be for work in 17 foot region. Also, never use the top two steps of any ladder.
