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.
