Aluminium Step Ladder

What are step ladders?


Step ladders are ladders which fold out and are self-supporting. They can be used to reach awkward areas where there isn’t anywhere to lean a regular ladder and are also ideal for use inside. Our step ladders come in a wide variety of sizes and styles to suit different applications. Our range includes more affordable options for lighter use at home, mid-range professional quality stepladders for tradespeople like painter and decorators, heavy-duty versions for demanding commercial use, such as for those in the building trade, and fibreglass ladders which are used for conducting electrical work.


All our step ladders are proudly made in the UK and are designed with durability and safety firmly in mind. All ladders in the range have a hefty maximum load of 150kg, so you know they are very strong and sturdy. All the stepladders in our range fully conform with new EN131 standards (professional or non-professional depending on model), so you know they are designed with user safety firmly in mind.


The fibreglass step ladders for electrical work 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 step 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 step ladder should I choose?


Most of the models in our range of high-quality step ladders are designed primarily for commercial use. For home use the light-duty aluminium step ladders and premier lightweight step ladders are very good options. The light-duty model is our most basic variant and will suit users looking to do occasional jobs around the house. The premier lightweight stepladders are higher quality ladders that will sort the keener DIY aficionado. These ladders feature innovative features like twin handrails for easy climbing and an integrated tool tray for a safe user-friendly experience.


The other stepladders in our range and targeted more at commercial use. The deep tread aluminium step ladders ideal for tradespeople like painters and decorators. These models feature a strong aluminium construction and comfortable 265mm x 265mm platform for durability and ease of use.


Our heavy-duty platform and swingback models are classic class 1 step ladders, great for intensive commercial use. The swingback variants are your traditional ‘builder’s steps’ design, whereas the platform versions have a reinforced 330mm x 225mm checker-plate standing platform for stability and comfort while working. The absolute strongest and most resilient stepladder in our range is the Probat trade step ladder. These are made from beefy 50mm aluminium scaffold tube and have been overtested to an incredible 360kg. Every attempt has been made to create the strongest and most sturdy step ladder on the market so this must be the number one choice for the most demanding applications.


For those conducting electrical work, the fibreglass step ladder models are an ideal choice. These stepladders have GRP stiles insulated for protection up to 30,000 volts, so they are safe to use while conducting electrical work. We have heavy-duty platform and swingback versions as well as Mighty Lite lightweight steps in this range, so electricians still have plenty of options so choose from.
