Fibreglass Ladder Industrial Uses
Given their immunity to electrical hazards, fibreglass ladders are commonly used by electricians for a number of electrical applications. They are also commonly found in various industrial environments due to their durability and strength. These include being used as warehouse fibreglass ladders, factory fibreglass ladders, construction fibreglass ladders, retail fibreglass ladders, laboratory fibreglass ladders, office fibreglass ladders, school fibreglass ladders and many more. Regardless of the environment, you work in, we have a high quality fibreglass ladder for you.
Using Our Heavy Duty Fibreglass Ladders for Electrical Applications
While aluminium and steel ladders are common industry standards for ladder and access applications, they conduct electricity and heat, making them unsuitable for electrical applications. This is where fibreglass ladders come in. Thanks to their fibreglass construction, they are suitable for these conditions, making them a safe and reliable choice for users who work near or around electrical hazards.
What to Consider When Choosing a Fibreglass Ladder for Your Workplace
When choosing a fibreglass ladder for your workplace, it is important to keep in mind the number of steps a ladder has, as well as the ladder extension height in the case of fibreglass extension ladders. With ladders ranging from 2 step models like our Indalex 2 Step Fibreglass Platform Ladder – 0.6m, to 16 step models like our Indalex 16 Step Fibreglass Double Sided Step Ladder – 4.9m, it is a good idea to select a ladder with the right dimensions and specifications for your workplace. Moreover, it is also important to verify that the fibreglass ladder’s load capacity is not exceeded when in operation. By keeping these things in mind, you can maintain a safe and productive working environment.
Safety Features of Our Industrial Fibreglass Ladders
At Equip2Go, our fibreglass ladders are equipped with various safety features to make sure your employees can work at their best knowing they are secure. For example, fibreglass step ladders like our Indalex 7 Step Fibreglass Double Sided Step Ladder – 2.1m have a two-piece extruded top that closes without a gap to prevent a pinching hazard, as well as a fastening method on each joint of the ladder to ensure it does not loosen up over time. Moreover, fibreglass platform ladders like our Indalex 9 Step Fibreglass Platform Ladder – 2.7m feature a 3-piece rung joint system on their rear sections and extra strong spreader bars and foot covers to enhance the life of the fibreglass ladder. Furthermore, fibreglass extension ladders like our Indalex Fibreglass Extension Ladder – 3.9m to 6.4m has a 3-piece rung joint system for attachment to the ladder side rails, as well as anodised aluminium components for superior corrosion resistance. It is because of safety features like these that allow workers to remain stable and secure when working at heights.
Measures You Can Follow to Preserve Your Safety When Using Our Fibreglass Ladders
There is always a risk when it comes to safety regardless of the ladder you use. When using our fibreglass ladders, it is important to keep in mind the following:
- Secure your fibreglass ladder on a solid and stable surface so that it remains still during operation.
- Use your hands and feet to keep 3 points of contact with the fibreglass ladder at all times.
- When using fibreglass extension ladders, ensure that the footing is secure as they are not inherently self-supporting. Also be sure to check that all locking ladder hooks are secure before climbing the fibreglass extension ladder.
- Always wear appropriate clothing and non-slip footwear when using a fibreglass ladder.
- If, for whatever reason, you have to temporarily leave your fibreglass ladder, recheck it before you use it again and try to be aware of other people and your surroundings.
- Once you have finished using your industrial fibreglass ladder, prepare it for its next use by checking that there are no loose or damaged components, cleaning it (if necessary) and storing it in a secure and covered location.
By following these safety measures, your workplace can stay the safe and productive work environment it needs to be.
