Ladders for Claims Adjusters

Ladders To Success

 It has been said, “as you climb the ladder of success, be sure it’s leaning against the right building”, but as independent roofing claims adjusters we know that having a durable ladder is just as important. 

Whether it’s a telescoping or extension ladder,  finding the ladder that works best for you and keeps you safe is top priority.  

With so many options for ladders, this week we decided to talk about the top rated ladders from a claims adjuster’s perspective.  

Xtend & Climb 785P Aluminum Telescoping Ladder

Type I Professional Series, 15.5 Ft. – This telescoping ladder retracts compactly, has an integrated carrying handle and a heavy duty closure strap, making it easy to carry and store. It weighs just 36 pounds, and you can extend and lock by the foot, easily adjusting to whatever height is needed for your job. The extend and lock feature also has a no-pinch closure system, as well as red/green tab indicators that let you know when the rungs are locked into place and the ladder is safe to climb. An angled thumb release ensures proper hand positioning and the ergonomic design allows for smooth operation. In addition, it has non-slip end caps that help keep it firmly in place. Made of Aerospace Engineered 6061 alloy, the Xtend & Climb is one tough ladder.

HyperLite 16 ft. Fiberglass Extension Ladder

The lightest Type IA and IAA fiberglass extension ladder in the world, this ladder weighs in at just under 30 pounds. With many ladder related injuries the weight of the ladder is the leading factor. HyperLite ladders weigh up to 40% less than the leading competitor’s standard fiberglass ladder, without sacrificing strength and stability. With a unique side-mounted, dual-pulley system which reduces the effort required to lift the fly section, the potential trip hazard caused by traditional center-pulley rope systems is removed. The feet of the ladder can be set in either flat or spike positions, whatever is needed for the ladder to stay in the most secure position on the landscape. Oh, and did we mention the ladder itself is bright green? Some of the most catastrophic falls are caused by people who walk or drive into an extension ladder in use, the highly visible color of this ladder is actually a measure of safety. Oh yeah, and it’s also 300 pound rated.


HyperLite 24 ft. Fiberglass Extension Ladder

Again, this ladder offers the same features as the 16 ft. model, but with the additional height versatility. Its total weight is 42 pounds, and its storage size is 12.6 ft. 




The Best of the Best

We think these ladders are the top of the line, and cover a wide variety of necessities from job to job. With high ratings in durability, ease of use, and safety, you can climb each rung of the ladder with quality assurance.

  1. I prefer the Telesteps ladder. Been using them for almost 15 yrs. More reliable than the Xtend ladders. Lighter weight and easier to extend and compact.
