Extension Ladders

What are extension ladders?


Extension ladders are ladders which can double or triple in length when fully extended. This means that they can reach much higher than single section ladders, whilst still being easy to transport. Our extension ladders come in a wide variety of sizes to suit different applications. Use extension ladders for easy access whilst working at heights. Our range includes standard trade ladders, great for tradespeople like painter and decorators or for the serious DIY enthusiast, heavy-duty extension ladders, the number one choice for those in the building trade, and fibreglass ladders, which are used for conducting electrical work.


All our ladders are proudly made in the UK and are designed with durability and safety firmly in mind. Our range of ladders are hard-wearing and are very well suited to the daily rigours of commercial use. They have a hefty maximum load of 150kg, so you know they are very strong and sturdy. Our heavy-duty and trade ladders come with a stabiliser bar and for the fibreglass / GRP ladders this is incorporated into the design. This stabiliser bar will reduce side to side movement, making the ladder safer and making it feel much more stable for the user.


All the extension ladders in our range fully conform with new EN131 standards, so you know they are totally safe for commercial use. The fibreglass extension ladders have stiles insulated to 30,000 volts, conforming with EN61478 standards for safe use when undertaking electrical work. Be sure that you are using high quality ladders to reduce the chance of accidents in the workplace and to ensure peace of mind while working at heights.


Who are these products for, and which extension ladder should I choose?


Our range of high-quality extension ladders are designed primarily for commercial use. For home use the double extension trade ladders are the best option and will allow the keen DIY aficionado to complete jobs at a much greater height. This is perfect for tasks like clearing out guttering and window cleaning. These trade ladders are also ideal for tradespeople like painters and decorators. These models feature a strong aluminium construction and comfortable anti twist slip resistant ‘D’ shaped rungs for excellent safety. 


Those working in building / construction and facilities management would do well to consider our heavy-duty extension ladders. These are designed for extra demanding use, so are perfect for these types of environments. Featuring reinforced stiles and 30mm square rungs, you know that these ladders offer the very best in strength and durability.


For those conducting electrical work, the fibreglass extension ladders are an ideal choice. These ladders have stiles insulated for protection up to 30,000 volts, so they are safe to use while conducting electrical work. They also feature rope operation for easy extension of the ladder’s full length and easy to adjust semi-automatic locks. A pole bow replaces a top rung, making these ladders suitable for use against columns as well as walls. These features improve the flexibility of our GRP ladders, meaning they are great for all your electrical jobs.
