    Rolling Library Ladders are no longer just a simple access solution but they are a key design feature in their own right. Our rolling library ladder system can be tailored to solve a number of access problems within a wide variety of environments. Often spotted in city centre cocktail bars as well as around the home our rolling ladders offer style, substance and solution to even the trickiest of access issues. 

    All our rolling ladders are handcrafted in the UK from sustainably sourced wood by our master craftsman Colin. With over 40 years experience we can guarantee you will be delighted with the final product. From start to finish the whole process takes around 3 weeks and it’s definitely worth the wait.  

    How Is A Rolling Ladder Crafted?

    The first stage is selecting the wood for the rolling ladder. The timbers are handpicked from sustainable sources and timber plank is used to ensure that there is no sub-par timbers used and to also ensure that waste can be minimised.  

    With the highest quality of materials selected Colin (Our mastercraftsman) prepares the wood and cuts them into shape by hand. They are then perfected by hand sanding and fitting every joint together. Although these rolling library ladders are handmade there is absolutely no question that each individual ladder will be perfect. 

    How Does A Rolling Ladder Work?

    The name rolling ladder gives away how it works, 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.

    We do not offer wheels on our rolling ladder systems due to safety complications that could occur. 

    What Materials Can I Get My Rolling Ladder In?

    At the moment our rolling ladders are available in Oak, Ash, Maple, Walnut, Redwood however keep your eyes peeled as we have an aluminium ladder with oak treads coming soon. If you’d like more information on this please don’t hesitate to get in touch.    

    What Are The Different Chassis Types?

    The standard chassis means that the ladder is fixed to the track and cannot be taken off however with the removable chassis your rolling ladder can be removed. This is ideal if you would like to store the ladder elsewhere when not in use. With the removable chassis you also have the option of having two tracks and using the same ladder.  

    Can I Paint My Rolling Ladder?

    Rolling ladders can be painted to suit any decor in the home or in a commercial setting. You can also request that your rolling ladder is painted or finished and we will do the hard work for you for an extra cost. To find out more information about finishes and paints provided by ourselves please get in touch.   

    How Do I Install My Rolling Ladder?

    Your ladders 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.

    The Rolling Ladder Order Process

    Once you place your order for a rolling ladder we will get a drawing created to your exact measurements. We will send you your drawing within 2 working days of order and if you are happy with the specifications you sign the drawing off. Once we receive the signed off drawing manufacture takes place and your rolling ladder is then made to order using the finest of woods. From drawing confirmation it takes approximately 3 weeks for your rolling ladder to arrive. 

    Can I get a Vertically Fixed Track? 

    It's not something we get asked for very regularly but that doesn't mean we can't provide it for you. If you need a vertical fixed track please place your order and add this information into the special instructions or talk through your order first with our team, by calling us on 01204 590232.

    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

      • 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.

    5. Jacky Hopps was super-helpful
      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!
