EN131 Professional Extension Ladders
As you may now be aware EN131 Professional is replacing Class 1 which is typically what classification should be used on construction sites. EN131 Professional now covers both trade and industrial use, which means any business using extension ladders in their day to day work should purchase ladders conforming to this new classification when replacing their ladders.
Main changes to EN131 Professional extension ladders are that any extension or leaning ladders over 3m will have to be fit with a stabiiser bar as standard and under new standards more rigorous weight and torsion tests have been introduced. This page contains a large selection of EN131 Professional extension ladders in both aluminium and fibreglass from our most popular suppliers including Lyte and Youngman.
If you are still unsure on what the new standards mean for your businesses access equipment you can find further information in our handy new standards guide or feel free to pick up the phone to our helpful and knowledgeable team.
