What is the weight capacity of industrial step ladders?

Industrial step ladders typically have a weight capacity ranging from 150 kg to 250 kg, depending on the ladder's material, design, and size.

Are industrial step ladders safe for use around electrical work?

Yes, fibreglass step ladders are non-conductive and safe for use around electrical work, while aluminium and steel ladders should be avoided due to their conductivity.

How do I choose the right height for my step ladder?

Consider the height of the tasks you'll be performing and choose a ladder that allows you to work comfortably without overreaching, keeping in mind that you should not stand on the top two steps.

Can I use an industrial step ladder on uneven surfaces?

Some step ladders are designed with adjustable legs or levelling systems to accommodate uneven surfaces, while others may require additional stabilising accessories.

What are the differences between fibreglass, aluminium, and steel ladders?

Fibreglass ladders are non-conductive, durable, and lightweight; aluminium ladders are lightweight and corrosion-resistant; steel ladders are robust, heavy-duty, and offer high weight capacities but may be heavier and prone to corrosion.

How should I store my industrial step ladder?

Store your ladder in a dry, sheltered area, preferably horizontally on racks or hooks to prevent warping or damage.

Are there any specific safety guidelines for using industrial step ladders?

Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines, maintain three points of contact, and use the ladder on stable, even surfaces. Additionally, avoid overreaching or standing on the top two steps.

Can I use an extension ladder instead of a step ladder for industrial applications?

While extension ladders may be suitable for some tasks, step ladders provide greater stability, safety, and ease of use for most industrial applications.
