Which Ladders Should Electricians Use?
If you're an electrician, you know how important it is to have the right tools and equipment. One of the most important tools in your arsenal is a ladder. But not all ladders are created equal. When it comes to ladders for electricians, safety is key. That's why Easy Access offers a wide range of fibreglass ladders that are specifically designed for electricians.
Why Fibreglass Ladders are the Best Choice for Electricians:
Fibreglass ladders are the best choice for electricians because they are non-conductive. That means they won't conduct electricity, even if they come into contact with live wires. This is important because it significantly reduces the risk of electrocution. In addition, fibreglass ladders are also lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion.
Fibreglass is non-conductive because it is made up of glass-reinforced plastic fibers, which are poor conductors of electricity. The plastic matrix that holds the fibers together also has a high electrical resistance, making the material an excellent insulator.
With that in mind, we will run through the functionality of the different types of fibreglass ladders in our range that are most popular with electricians.
Easy Access's Range of Fibreglass Ladders
At Easy Access, we understand the importance of having the right ladder for the job. That's why we offer a wide range of fibreglass ladders that are perfect for electricians. Here are just a few examples of our most popular models:
Fibreglass Dual Purpose Ladders
The Fibreglass Dual Purpose Ladders are versatile ladders that can be used as either a step ladder or an extension ladder. They feature wide-flared legs for added stability and a 150kg weight capacity. These ladders also have non-slip treads and a large platform area for added safety and comfort. We would recommend this ladder range for short term tasks below 5 minutes as it is versatile and can easily reach a range of heights.
Fibreglass Platform Ladders
The Fibreglass Platform Ladders are ideal for jobs that require a stable platform to work from. We strongly recommend using a fibreglass platform ladder if you will be using a platform ladder for electrician work for more than 5 minutes. They feature a large platform area, handrails for added safety, and a 150kg weight capacity.
Fibreglass AdjustaStep Platform Ladder
The Fibreglass AdjustaStep ladder is relatively new to the range and is very versatile as it is height adjustable. We recommend this ladder over any others for electricians as they often undertake task longer than 5 minutes and at different heights – so the height adjustable platform in fibreglass is the perfect fit for most electricians. The Ladder can be easily moved up or down in 100mm increments. This ladder also has a large platform area, handrails for added safety, and a 150kg weight capacity. The only downside is the added weight from the components which makes this ladder height adjustable. But coming in at 30kg, it will be easy to manoeuvre for most.
Fibreglass All-in-One MultiPurpose Ladder – NEW TO THE RANGE!
The Fibreglass All-in-One Multi-purpose Ladder is exactly what its name suggests - a ladder that can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be used as a step ladder, an extension ladder, a stairway ladder, or even as scaffolding. It's lightweight, easy to transport, and has a weight capacity of 150kg. And, of course, it's non-conductive and resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent choice for electricians.
Fibreglass Extension Ladders
Easy Access also offers Fibreglass Extension Ladders that are perfect for electricians who need to work at higher heights. They are the obvious choice of ladder of lineworkers and are regularly used for this type of work. These ladders are available in a range of sizes, from 3.6 meters to 8.7 meters, and feature non-slip treads for added safety. The Fibreglass Extension Ladders also have a unique rung-by-rung locking mechanism that allows you to extend the ladder to just the right height for your job.
