What is a Step Ladder?

The Step ladder is a self-supporting portable ladder that is non-adjustable in length, with flat steps and a hinged design for ease of storage. 

It is intended for use by one person and can be either single or double sided.

All step ladders are "A-Frames".

What are our Step Ladders manufactured from?

At Dreymar Industrial, our Step Ladders are manufactured from Aluminium or Fibreglass.

What size step ladders do you supply?

Our A-frame step ladders are available in the following sizes:

The highest standing level on a step ladder is approximately 600mm from the top of the ladder – This is because the top two steps (or rungs) are not intended to be stood on. To calculate the maximum work height, add the users reach height to the highest standing level of the stepladder.

What types of step ladders do we supply?

Why buy a step ladder?

Step ladders can be used for a huge variety of tasks, both at home and at work. Whether you're doing a DIY decorating job in your living room or you're starting your own company, a step ladder is a must-have!

Our heavy-duty step ladders come in a range of sizes and materials, including fibreglass and aluminium. So we're confident you'll find the step ladder you need.

How do I use a step ladder?

Check that all of the ladder's feet are firmly on the ground, then climb slowly, keeping three points of contact with the ladder at all times (ideally both feet and one hand). Don't over-reach while on the ladder.

How often should a step ladder be inspected?

You should give your step ladder a brief visual inspection before every use to make sure it is not damaged. A more thorough inspection should be carried out 2 to 4 times per year.

Step Ladder Safety:

How do I use a Step Ladder Safely?
  • Ensure the stepladder is placed on level ground
  • Ensure the stepladder close to the work to be done.
  • Ensure the stepladder is fully open and the spreaders are locked
  • Ensure you face the ladder and maintain a firm hold while climbing/descending
  • Ensure that your body is in the centre of the ladder whilst climbing and working.
  • Ensure that the anti-slip feet at the bottom of the stepladder side rails are present and in good condition prior to use.
  • Ensure the load rating that is marked on the stepladder is adequate for the work to be done. The rating should cover the person’s weight and the weight of tools that will be used.
  • Use a stepladder that is about 1 m (900) shorter than the highest point you must reach.
  • Check stability. Ensure that all ladder feet are on a firm, level and non-slippery surface.
  • Place a stepladder at right angles to the work, with either the front or back of the steps facing the work.
What should I avoid when using a Step Ladder?
  • Do not step or stand on the Top Cap/Rung.
  • Do not use on ice, snow, or slippery surfaces.
  • Do not overreach. Move a stepladder when needed.
  • Do not overload. Stepladders are meant for one person.
  • Do not "shift" or "walk" a stepladder when standing on it.
  • Do not stand, climb, or sit on the stepladder top or pail shelf.
  • Do not attempt to carry other objects in your hands whilst climbing.
  • Do not stand on or above the top two rungs or steps of the stepladder.
  • Do not use a stepladder as a single ladder in its partially open position.
  • Do not use a stepladder as a brace or as a support for a work platform or plank.
  • Do not use stepladders on soft ground where one leg may sink farther into the ground than others.
  • Do not use ladders in passageways, doorways, driveways or other locations where a person or vehicle can hit it. Set up suitable barriers or lock doors shut.
  • Do not place upon other objects such as boxes, barrels, scaffolds, or other unstable bases to obtain additional height.
  • Do not use a ladder that has cracks, lose or corroded rivets, defective braces, or parts (including the slip resistant feet) that are in poor condition. Make sure it is free of grease or oil and other slippery substances.
  • Do not push or pull the stepladder from the side. Repeated sideways movement can make ladders wobbly since they are weaker or less stable in those directions.
