    is specifically designed for us to safely carry
    our tasks that requires climbing up and down. The
    most common type of ladders usually consists of
    two long vertical stiles or rails that are linked
    together by horizontal pieces or rungs.

Types of Ladder
  • Rigid Ladder
  • This is the most common type of ladder. Rigid
    ladders are mostly made from hard materials like
    hardwoods and metals for durability and strength.
    Rigid ladders come in different shapes and sizes

    This type of ladder is not considered safe enough

    your only option. Flexible ladders are commonly
    used when climbing curved surfaces like rocks and
    caves. It is also staple equipment used in ships
    or boats when an emergency situation arises. The
    advantage of using flexible ladders is that you

    flow of electric current that will discharge into
    a conductor. One of the greatest conductor is the
    human body and dissipative ladders prevents
    electrical transfer making it safe to use
    especially if you are working on an electrical
    task.
