sorry, don't know. but as hinty pointed out in another thread, it's a lot easier to lose balance when over reaching on them, gets a bit short on footspace the last 3 rungs, so unless it's for specialist stuff, ie a lot of proping up in corners i would'nt fancy it. the ground floor ones are ok for shop fronts though.

This is very true. Also they cost quite a bit! 2 Tier, they range from £150 upwards. I wouldn't go 2 tier personally mate, just get the standard set up.

Get a lite ladder, it makes your life a bit easier, until you need a bigger ladder ie 3 teir. But that's later down the line. Hope that helps :-)

I would second previous advice about pointers really only being suitable for specialist jobs. My advice would be to go for the 3.5 meter(closed) trade ladders at £102.99 on the second link. I recently bought a pair of these and they are very good. They come with a locking mechanism that needs to be removed if you are planning on racking a set on top of another on a vehicle, but its one bolt, not that big a deal.
