Extension Ladders

  • Based on the 4:1 ratio, an extension ladder should be positioned one (1) metre out from the wall for every four (4) metres in supported ladder length.
  • If using to climb onto a surface (e.g. a roof) always extend the ladder at least one (1) metre past the point of support (e.g. gutter/edge of roof) and ensure the ladder is positioned on firm, even ground.
