Types of telescopic ladders

The number of steps and the maximum working height are decisive for finding the ideal telescopic ladder. Our innovative telescopic ladders are equipped with a professional soft-closing system, so there is no risk of hands or fingers getting between the rungs.
How does this extension ladder work?
Telescopic ladders can be used for multiple tasks and are very user-friendly. You can reach good heights, and, at the same time, it is a compact model for storage. The most important tip is always to place this ladder on a firm and level surface. So this is the first step you take. A solid surface always ensures safety. Once you have a suitable surface, place your foot on the first rung (step) and the other on the ground.
Then pull up the first rung and wait for it to lock. Repeat this with all the rungs. You can also partially extend the ladder. In this case, it is important that any unused rungs are at the top of the ladder. In our collection, all telescopic ladders are equipped with indicators that show whether each step is fully locked in. If they are, it is safe to climb up.
The safety of a telescopic ladder
The telescopic ladder has been specially developed for working safely at heights. ALDORR ladders comply with legislation and regulations and are made of high-quality aluminium. The user’s safety is our first priority and remains guaranteed if you use a solid surface. It is also important that you do not use substances that could have a negative effect on the ladder. A negative effect can be caused by humidity or paint if it affects the click system of the sliding ladder. As long as there are no such issues, the ladder is very safe.
How to choose the right telescopic ladder?
Choosing a ladder from ALDORR means you can be sure that it complies with the necessary regulations. Our telescopic ladders meet all safety and quality requirements. The first thing you might think of is the Commodities Act (Warenwet), which contains requirements with which climbing materials must comply. The Commodities Act takes precedence over European Standard 131. The EN 131 is about stairs and ladders to protect users against unsafe products. NEN 2484 is a stringent standard for professional use. If the product complies with this, it can handle many work situations and fulfils all the ARBO requirements. If you are looking for a ladder for professional use, choose a telescopic ladder from the Aldorr Professional range.

The length between the rungs is usually 30 cm. Also, take into account your own height.
