Ladders And Ladder Accessories

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

Who doesn't use a ladder in their house? A ladder may just be one of the most useful inventions of all time. People use ladders almost everywhere and have made our lives so much easier. You can use them around the house for hard to reach places. Also you can find ladders in industrial warehouses, offices and even at the fire station that helps save people's lives.

Added to the ladder are its useful accessories to enhance its performance. Ladders are highly useful, but they are also quite unsafe, especially the very long ones. That is why ladder accessories are mostly used to make it possible to use ladders in a more secure way. Planks are commonly used to add support to the ladder. You can use jacks to hold the planks in place. Racks however are useful in securing the ladder.

Planks are often added between two ladders so that a person can safely walk along a work area at a height. They make the surface of planks out of non-slip aluminum instead of wooden planks, as they are slippery. You can place standoffs on the top of a ladder to make it stable even at great heights.

Popular types of ladders are telescoping ladders that are adjustable in length. They have extendable planks that make them portable for use and easy to store. They can collapse in a way similar to a telescope, which is what brought about the name telescope ladder. You will also see them used in fire trucks. There are also automatic telescoping ladder, that you can use to extend it to great heights. It allows firefighters to access areas of burning buildings that would otherwise not be possible and save people's lives.

Telescope ladders are also used in attics in almost all houses. You just pull the attic door down and the ladder opens up in length. You also see a similar use in the emergency back exits of all apartment buildings. The best part is that the ladder is as long as required, but will take very less storage space because it simply collapses vertically, reducing its height.

Each rung of the ladder will rest on top of the rung below it. This lets the ladder be stable and be used at greater heights than usual. Even big public libraries often use them because they have shelves almost reaching the ceiling. Movable tires can also be added to the bottom to make the ladder move from left to right.
