What Size A Frame Ladder?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I'm Looking to buy a double A frame ladder but not sure what size to go for. At the moment i use a normal open ended extension ladder which is 10 rungs i believe. its been okay for me 99% of the time, but lately i'm picking up more houses with the little slanted roofs under the first floor windows that i cant get to with the normal ladder.


what size A frames do you guys use? Would a 13 rung double "A" be long enough? that seems to be the biggest on midland ladders.



Cheers Paul.

i have a 3m tripple and a 3.1 meter double on my van and i use the double for 95% of the ladder work i do it will reach gutters or stretch over sloped roofs but as tench said might be worth getting a little wfp system for the more difficult windows and just beg a bit of water off another windy rather than making your own
