Right Ladder for Home

Aluminum Ladders

Ladders made with Aluminum offer a lightweight and strong alternative to other ladder types. The benefits to this are obvious, allowing for transportation and use of the ladder with ease. The aluminum ladder is also resistant to most normal wear and tear gained by ladders made of other materials. Aluminum also does not need coating and will not crack like it’s wooden counterpart.

Disadvantages: Aluminum ladders can’t be used in situations involving intense heat or electricity due to its conductive nature.

Wood Ladders

The wood ladder is the traditional ladder type. Most wood ladders are made of a combination of hardwoods and softwoods, which result in a very strong ladder. Wood ladders also do not conduct electricity, so they can be used in places where aluminum ladders cannot.

Disadvantages: Wood ladders tend to get very heavy compared to their aluminum counterpart. In addition, they need a varnish to help preserve the life of the wood. Wood ladders are also susceptible to aging such as cracks and rot.

Fiberglass Ladders

Fiberglass ladders are the newest form of ladder. Fiberglass is a man-made material that, like wood, doesn’t conduct electricity when dry. Fiberglass is also a very dense material, and can be exposed to high temperatures for short periods of time without weakening and will generally regain its previous strength once removed from the heat. Fiberglass also doesn’t crack or rot such as wood when left outside in certain weather.

Disadvantages:

While fiberglass seems to combine the advantages of both aluminum and wood ladders, it also has unique disadvantages. The density of fiberglass makes these ladders very heavy, heavier than wood and aluminum. In addition fiberglass can crack when under great pressure or impact.
