Avoid Your Ladders Slipping Blog Header

When using ladders on uneven ground or hazardous surfaces it can be dangerous without the use of a stabiliser or anti-slip device. There are many cost-effective ways to keep you safe when on your ladder. This blog post will show you which products you could use to avoid your ladder slipping, ensuring you stay safe when working at height.

The first product is a very cost-effective solution when working on uneven or sloping ground. The Laddermat Ladder Leveller is made up of four mats made from heavy-duty rubber matting. The Laddermat can be placed under one of the feet to level the working surface on uneven ground and can even be used on the steady ground to reduce the risk of slipping. If you are carrying out work on softer ground, it can be used to avoid your ladders sinking. 

If you require your ladder to be vertical and you are working on level or sloping ground either uphill or downhill, the Big Grip Ladder Stabiliser and Leveller is the perfect product for you. The Big Grip is fully adjustable; it increases the footprint and grip of normal ladders from less than 4 square inches to over 480 square inches making your ladder extremely secure. The 50mm cam buckle enables your ladder to be secured to the footplate which can be adjusted to keep you safe on sloping ground. 

Falls and slips from ladders are one of the most popular accidents reported to the HSE. An anti-slip device could save your life.
