The Single Ladder is a non-self-supporting portable ladder that is non-adjustable in length, consisting of one section only. It is intended for use by one person.
Single Ladders are also commonly known as “Lean To” Ladders.
Why? As the name already suggests, lean to ladders are simply leant against a wall before use.
Single Ladders are constructed from a single aluminium or fibreglass frame and are a single, fixed size. They do not fold, extend, slide or open in any way.
How do I select the right size Single Ladder?
Selecting the correct size Single Ladder requires knowledge of the height of the topmost support point the ladder will rest against. In the event the top support point is a roof eave, the top of the Single Ladder must extend 30cm-90cm above the roof eave if the climbers' intent is to access the roof. The ladder must also be tied to the upper access level before climbing on to or off the ladder at the upper level. The user must take care when getting on or off the ladder at the upper level to avoid tipping the ladder over sideways or causing the ladder base to slide out.
Unlike a stepladder that requires level support for all four of its legs, the Single Ladder requires only two-level ground support points in addition to its top support.
Single Ladders are user-friendly, affordable and offer a wide range of applications from domestic through to trade and commercial use.
