This Range of fibreglass wide step ladder was originally designed with the hire market in mind, so they have been engineered to exacting standards with improved stability over standard stepladders. To this end this ladder is manufactured using a multi directional thread, which increases the strength in the composite. Safety is always the first priority when using a ladder. One of the major advantages of fibreglass is the fact that it is non-conductive, and can be used around electricity. A further advantage is that fibre glass will not hold a static charge and therefore can be used safely near sensitive electrical equipment as they are insulated to 30 000 volts as they are insulated to 30 000 volts.
Even though these ladders are very robust, they can be folded up into a flat pack for ease of storage and transport and can be easily fitted inside or be transported on top of a small van. They have the added advantage of being fitted with two wheels on the rear of the ladder. Making them very manoeuvrable, tilt the ladder until the wheels make contact with the ground and it can be moved to where you next need it. The wheels are even useful when it is folded up, even though it very light. It has been certified to BS EN131 the European Standard for industrial ladders giving it a maximum load of 150kg.
The GFWP range are designed to offer improved stability, with large 85mm non-slip aluminium serrated treads, 1000mm high handrail and an extra large working platform made from anti slip aluminium chequer plate, 600mm wide by 400 deep. The high hand rails and clip on/off chain offer an extra level of assurance. Which make it virtually impossible to fall whilst working on the platform.
These ladders are ideal for any trade or industrial uses. the perfect light weight insulated mobile platform, suitable for a multitude of jobs.
