If one has never worked in an industrial environment where maintenance is carried out in awkward positions or inaccessible places, or indeed access needs to be gained but only infrequently, one could be forgiven for not knowing what a rolling ladder is.
A rolling ladder is a collective name for a series of different designs of ladders, usually aluminum ladders or light alloy ladders all of which have a set of wheels on the base for ease of movement and positioning, and indeed safe storage when not required.
Invariable an industrial ladder is too big, too bulky or too heavy or a combination of all three to easily carry or maneuver in place and yet need to be deployed many times during the course of a working period.
A warehouse ladder used in a storage environment can take on many guises, and in the case of racked storage stock picking, are ideal for rolling along the floor on wheels and offering up access to storage shelves and items taken off shelves can be placed on a shelf below the ladder thereby saving time, space and man hours over time.
Truck and dock ladders, safety work platform, industrial ladders and mobile mechanics ladders are just some of the examples of available for use in myriad commercial and industrial applications.
However, it is difficult to paint a complete picture in words of what it look like, aluminum or steel frames, wheels on the base which are lockable for security and safety and shelves below the steps to facilitate temporary storage of retrieved stock or easy transportation of heavy tool kits if its being used in a maintenance capacity.
Readers of this article all of whom work in an industrial environment will understand just what is being described here but many of them probably are not aware just how many designs and practical situations and applications aluminum and steel rolling ladders can be deployed in, and may have seen only one or two designs or sizes, if that.
There are many practical applications in which our products can be used. In fact there are so many work applications, that it s probably best taking a look at the options and solutions available from the premier point of view. Call us for more information regarding our products (888) 722-0311).
