Best Ladders

Ladders are usually made from three types of materials: wood, aluminum, and fiberglass. Wood has been around for thousands of years and is a reasonably strong and lightweight material that is easy to work with. Aluminum became popular after wood because of its equal or greater load-carrying capacity over wood and the fact that it does not get water-logged and is more durable. But since aluminum metal is a conductor of electricity and heat, there are situations that would preclude the use of aluminum ladders because of safety issues. Fiberglass is the third most common material nowadays for making ladders. Not only do fiberglass ladders insulate a worker against heat and electricity, they can also be made as durable as aluminum ladders.

Best Step Ladders

The steps must be wide enough for safety and comfort and have standard safety features such as friction rubber caps for the legs, a tool tray, and a safety handle.
