    trade triples are heavy , lord knows how heavy industrials are .

    if you buy triples 11 -13 rungs they need to be rope operated or you wont be able to get them up and down easily . 10 rung triples are what i use for 3 storey work and i can extend them fully without a rope,but only just

    If I wanted to REALLY extend my ladder, I used to rest them on a gutter, walk up and shove it higher using the slide on the plastic to get it higher. NOT recommended though!

    i am ever so glad when i replaced my worn out 3.5 i went for the 4.2 as the bigger ladder makes it a lot safer...and it keeps your muscles in shape too!:)
