About Triple Extension Ladders
Triple extension ladders offer easy access to elevated heights. When fully extended, these ladders will normally even provide access to the roof of a modern two-storey home. When buying this type of ladder, it is worth considering its folded size for storage, the material it is made from to ensure that they are light and easy to move and any additional features, such as the grip on the feet and the mechanism that locks the ladder sections in place.
The strength of triple lock ladders is important. Working at heights is dangerous, and if the ladders themselves, as well as the sliding mechanism, are not strong enough, they could pose a danger to those that use them as well as people around. Aluminium is a commonly used material in the manufacture of these types of ladder ? it is versatile enough for the manufacture of high quality items, strong enough to ensure the safety of ladder users, and light enough to be easily carried and moved around.
For most DIY jobs, a set of step ladders or double extension ladders may be adequate. However, depending on the model and make that you choose, triple extension ladders offer the benefit that they can reach heights of 6.5m or more. The gutter height for most modern homes is approximately 5.5m, and even Victorian properties usually have their gutter at 6.5m. When purchasing ladders, it is better to determine the height that you need to reach and then add an extra meter. Working alongside, rather than reaching up to the work surface is safer and easier to manage.
