Ladders are a quick and easy way to work at height. Portable and easy to set up, they are suitable for any project and by any skill level. The two main categories of ladder rentals fall under is extension ladders and step ladders (a-frame ladders). Both types of ladders have advantages over the other and should be considered when deciding which to rent to complete your project. In many cases, you may find you have a need for both types of ladders to get even more done.
Sturdy construction of the ladder rental you choose allows you to carry heavy loads up and down to get it where it needs to go. The simplicity and ease by which you can convert ladders from storage position to utilization mean your work will go even faster. Make sure to consider the material used in the construction of the ladder to assure it is suited for the kind of work you are engaging in. For instance, if you were to be working with electricity, you’re going to want a non-conductive material, like fiberglass, to assure you will not turn into a conduit yourself.
With plenty of types and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to get the perfect ladder rental for your project. Remember, the height of the ladder does not always equate to the maximum height you can reach. While you may not be able to stand at the top of an A-Frame ladder, you will have your own height to add to that. This means your reach will extend past the maximum height of the ladder. It is always better to err on the side of a ladder that is longer than you need rather than be tempted to stand higher on a ladder than is safe.
