this is my low level gutter an conny roof set up what do u think
yes nice kit ,if your going to charge proper prices people need to see the investment.....actually the thing on the bottom....well .....in the eighties when i was starting out on my own i decided that the current ladder design was not good enough....so i thought about what i wanted and that thing on the bottom was near enough what i came up with....so i went into Manchester to the patent library and checked if anyone had patented such a device...no to my surprise they hadnt....so i sat down and days later emerged with a patentable "device for the prevention of ladder slip".....and i did indeed gain a first year patent for it......but there in lies the problem, in order to keep the patent you have to invest...and the second year was some £400 investment plus more each year to get a full patent.....so i gave up, kids come first.......and a few years after i noticed it for sale.....thats life...i dont understand why all ladders do not have it built in and the standoff built in at the top ...so easy to do ....maybe someone knows of such a ladder...
what's the best way to secure a ladder on a wet wooden deck ?! I use a rubber mat but still worried
it is the scariest wet wooden decking ...i cant even walk on some of it.....i believe some attach spikes and go in the gap....
ladder m8 good for that
Looks a good setup that for lower stuff
An ankalad works great on wet slippery surfaces.
Example pic of an ankalad deployed on badly slopping & slippery decking
I also use that setup as a free standing ladder for conservatory roof cleaning when I can't be arsed to setup my esi-dec conservatory roof ladder http://easi-dec.co.uk/store/conservatory-roof-access.html
