    Hi guys

    At the moment I'm looking at ladders and a safety device for them.

    First thought was ankalad. Great reviews on here.

    Has anyone used ladder m8trix.

    It looks fantastic and a great price and space saver too. Just unsure if it really is that slip resistant ?

    Cheers guys

    Cheers mate.

    Is there a weight limit in them?

    Will they go on normal pavements too?

    yeah use a m8trix and as Murphy says it has never slipped and used it on tarmac, grass, concrete and decking that was like disney on ice but you gotta carry that bad boy as it doesn't attach to your ladders as spikes boarcity uses

    you could [probably] bolt the matrix onto your ladder underside , then flip it down under the feet . would that work

    The matrix is quite heavy and a good chance of accidental spikage if not kept in the hard yellow removable she'll cases. there's spikes on each side like a bed of nails. The nails bed in to the ladder feet and the surface, I've used them on gravel, paving, decking, no slip at all and no noticeable damage

    The good thing about the m8 is its quick to place out and flexible, the good thing about the ladder brace is the triangulated base, and the rigidity of the ladder but slower and more awkward to place, if hedges/walls/uneven surfaces, advantage is not much extra weight and its attatched so can't forget it/loose it.
