So you’ve been thinking about buying a telescoping ladder. Congratulations! Picking the right ladder is important, and we’d like to help. There are a few questions you should ask yourself in order to choose the right telescoping ladder for your needs.
How are you going to be using your telescoping ladder?
The first thing to consider is how you’re going to use the ladder. Around the house? At a construction site? What sorts of tasks do you envision completing with the ladder?
This will help you to understand if you need a Professional Series ladder or a Home Series ladder. Xtend+Climb® Pro Series telescoping ladders are designed with industrial use in mind. They are portable, durable, and feature high safety ratings and tall reach heights. The Home Series telescoping ladders have similar features but are designed for homeowners and do-it-yourselfers. They are light-weight, compact, and easy to store in tight spaces. Learn more about the differences between home series and pro series telescoping ladders here.
What height and weight of ladder do you need?
To determine which model you need, you should think about which height and weight is best for you. Consider your needs:
– Will you be putting it through the paces at a construction site? If so, go for a heavier, more durable ladder.
– Does it need to be ultra-lightweight and compact for home use? If so, go with a smaller, lighter ladder.
– How tall does it need to extend? Are you painting walls or hanging pictures? Determine the reach that you need and choose the ladder that accommodates it. Choose from a variety of models ranging from 8.5 foot reach height to 19.5 foot reach height.
Regardless of model, all Xtend+Climb® telescoping ladders feature non-slip end caps for added stability. Additionally, these ladders are flexible, not rigid, to help you balance while you’re up on the rungs. Finally, Xtend+Climb ladders extend and lock by the foot, so you can adjust their height for every task you set forth to accomplish.
