    Description

    Details

    Rolling Library Ladders are no longer just a simple solution to access problems; they are a key design feature in their own right.

    rolling ladder woods

    With this in mind, we have created a rolling ladder system that that can be tailored to solve any number of access problems within a variety of environments, without compromising on style, design and handmade quality.  

    From the functionality of a warehouse, to the contemporary design of a city centre cocktail bar, perhaps as a useful and practical libary ladder, or even as part of a home makeover or renovation, we provide an extremely versatile product that offers style, substance and solution to even the trickiest of access issues.

    Individually hand-built and supplied by our UK carpenters, located in Ipswich, our rolling ladders are available in Oak, Redwood, Maple or Walnut for use in a home or working business environment such as an office or bar. Our rolling ladders are a simple yet effective enhancement to your access solutions. Our carpenters will expertly choose the timber for your wooden ladders so that you can ensure your product fits your style as well as your solution.

    rolling library ladder track close up

    The key to our rolling ladder’s versatility is the innovative, precision-engineered and anodised alloy track and captive trolley system.  The ladder is attached to a trolley chassis, where it can then smoothly run up and down the length of the track and be easily re-positioned - or stored away vertically - through a simple lift and push motion.  

    The trolley chassis runs on industrial nylon bearings for a smoother operation that is maintenance-free once installed – our product aims to enhance not inconvenience! The track of our rolling library ladders can be mounted on either a vertical (front) or horizontal (top) surface as standard, and can be as long or as short as required.

    Key Features:

    Our library ladders are available in a variety of finishes to match the aesthetics of your chosen location – in the comfort of a private home or within a thriving business environment.

    Rolling library ladder tread close upWe offer four timber rolling ladders in Oak, Redwood, Maple or Walnut, though other woods are available directly from the UK upon request.  The wood is supplied unfinished, which allows you to either enjoy the style of the wood as it is, or to easily stain or wax the ladders to suit your existing decor.  Our ladders are crafted by our carpenters to carefully fit your measurements and suit your needs.

    All ladders for sale comprise deep, anti-slip treads for safe, secure and comfortable access as standard.   

    Rolling ladder accessoriesOur innovative rolling ladder design allows installation in almost any setting, including those where space is tight. When not in use, your ladders can be stored vertically or can even be completely removed from the track if you wish. The track and chassis system is tested to carry a load of 130kg.

    Optional accessories available include standard & extended aluminium handrails and rubber tread inserts.

    Rolling Library Ladder Delivery & Installation

    rolling library ladder stored

    We manufacture our rolling ladders near Ipswich in the UK  and take pride in seeing them utilised in a range of some of the country’s top bars, department stores and both private and public residences; demonstrating the extent of their versatility.

    Your ladders will be delivered to your door within 3-4 weeks after the drawing has been been signed and will arrive pre-assembled in one complete section, ready for DIY installation or can be installed by our professional team – please contact us for an installation quote.

    The trolley chassis is pre-assembled and fitted onto a section of track ready to be mounted. The track originally comes in 2.4 metre sections and can be adapted and mounted seamlessly.

    Whether your home poses issues with obstacles around storage of the kids’ toys and games, or your business property throws up issues with uneven fixtures and fittings, then we can modify your rolling ladders to craft a product that is tailored to meet your needs.

    Please note: when using a rolling ladder for access to a mezzanine the top tread should be 235 mm from the top of the ladder to prevent tipping. Also, this product is made to order and therefore non-returnable.

    Questions on Rolling Library Ladders

    • From Estelle at 14/05/2014 12:36
      • What exactly is the difference between standard and ladder chassis with ladder release?
      • The standard chassis is fitted to the ladder and is non removable. The ladder release comes with hooks that fit to the back of the ladder allowing you to remove the ladder. Both systems allow you to park the ladder vertically when not in use.

    • From steven at 23/07/2012 13:16
      • Is it possible to install the mechanism and keep it hidden from view? are there detailed CAD drawings available to aid me in my design process?
      • The track will be less visible if fitted to the top of a shelf rather than the front but you can't really hide it completely.
      • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
    • From Matt at 13/06/2012 13:18
      • Are your rolling ladders suitable for outdoor installation. I am thinking of growing a 'living wall' and will need access to weed and replant etc.
      • Yes it is suitable for use outside as the track is anodised aluminium/ stainless steel and the chassis is marine grade. However if you wanted a timber ladder it would need treating with suitable varnish etc.
      • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
    • From Jane at 13/06/2012 13:22
      • I am looking to use the ladder to access a platform. Can it operate if the ladder extends 3 treads above the track? Also the photos show the track on the vertical face to the shelves but your data sheet show it on the top can it work in either application or do you need to specify at time of ordering?
      • Yes in theory the ladder should work but we would require drawings to confirm.
        The track can be fitted to either face of the shelf .
      • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
    • From Richard at 13/06/2012 13:23
      • Can handrails be fitted to the ladders?
      • Yes, aluminium safety handrails can be fitted to any of the timber rolling ladder options as well as the industrial aluminium option.

    1. High Bookcase Solution
      Performance / Ease of Use
      Quality of product
      Value for money

      A customer needed two ladders because we designed them a really high bookcase/library that spanned three rooms, one room hand low cupboards and two rooms had the shelving, the only way to get to their books up high would have been with ladders, so they opted for these beautiful solid oak ladders that complemented our clean white modern fitted furniture beautifully. The order process was very simple, you just had to put some dimensions on the website and it calculated what ladder you needed and the price, which was great as I was able to give my customer a price straight away. The ladder was delivered very well packaged and protected and on time, it was very easy to fit too.

    2. Bespoke Shelving Problem Solved
      Performance / Ease of Use
      Quality of product
      Value for money

      Our lovely oak rolling ladder has been used to gain access to our bespoke shelving in our study designed to store mainly books. I called ladderstore to ask for help with the measurements due to the beam we have attached the rail to not being level and about 150 years old. She called me back promptly with the support and assistance required. The ladder arrived earlier than expected and we are pleased with the overall look.

      Performance / Ease of Use
      Quality of product
      Value for money

      Jacky Hopps was super-helpful. She spent time with me discussing what was right for my situation and we came up with an unpainted wooden rolling ladder. I am delighted. She even helped me chose a colour! Then when I phoned to say I didn't understand how to assemble it she was very patient when it turned out I was being a complete idiot and it was actually very obvious!
