Types of Step Ladders
Ladders are typically constructed from either wood, fiberglass or aluminum. While each material has certain advantages and disadvantages, choosing the right ladder will largely depend on the nature of your work.
Use these helpful tips to determine which type of step ladder is best for you:
- Wood Ladders: Wooden step ladders keep you safe near power lines. However, they tend to be heavier than other materials and can eventually wear out if they’re exposed to the elements for long periods of time.
- Fiberglass Ladders: Fiberglass ladders can last a lifetime, as they resist weathering and protect you from electric shock. However, they’re heavier than their counterparts.
- Aluminum Ladders: Aluminum ladders are extremely lightweight and portable, making them ideal for home and professional use. However, if you plan on working near wires or electrical currents, choose a different type of ladder to avoid the risk of electric shock.
