Whether you are a do it yourself homeowner or a business owner who specializes in construction or restoration in London, you will probably find that you need ladders and scaffolding to safely and properly get any job done that is higher than the six foot mark. In addition, scaffolding and ladders can be used in every day use for things such as storage (the Aluminum Mini Mobile Scaffold Step Ladder is both a scaffold and a shelving system, depending on your needs; it costs about $220) as well as having the ability to reach high places (step ladders), getting into the attic (extension ladders) and so on.
When it comes to scaffolding, you have to choose between something that is designed for light use and something that is designed for heavy use. For example, the Werner PS-48 Rolling Scaffold ($97) is only designed to support up to $250 lbs and only reaches to 4′ high. The Bil-Jax 0127-006-0 6′ Multi-Purpose Tower Scaffold ($495), on the other hand, supports up to 1,000 lbs. Of course, there are even bigger scaffolding options that are stackable and can reach up to second and third stories in height.
Ladders are more commonly used in the home and it isn’t uncommon for a homeowner to have a 12 to 20 foot ladder available to them. There are two options for these types of ladders, A frame ladders and leaning ladders. A frame are popular because they offer plenty of support, such as the Werner MT22 Type 1A Telescope Alum Articulated Ladder for $140. Leaning ladders are popular for those who need to get very close to an object.
Attic ladders are a different animal altogether. Usually attic ladders are extension ladders such as concertina style , folding attic stairs or even remote control ladders. For example, the Galaxy Remote Control Attic Ladder G2755 costs about $2,584, but if you have to go in and out of your attic a lot, this may be something worth it for you.
No matter what type of ladders and scaffolding, you should take the time to research your options. Scaffolding and ladders are things that you should only have to purchase once every ten to twenty years so quality is important. You can use the Internet, not only to find good deals, but to learn what other people are saying about the product that you are considering.
