What are the four types of commercial ladders used for?

     1.   Tixed LaddersFixed ladders are used for vertical access to high elevation points.  Examples include access to mezzanines, bridges, large structures on grain silos, and building roof tops.  Fixed ladders get their name from the fact that they are erected vertically from a stable, fixed position.


track ladders     2.Track ladders get their name from tracks that hold them firmly in vertical position.  These ladders slide along a horizontal access that runs parallel to some type of shelving.  These ladders are the preferred choice of people who need to manipulate stock in various ways. 


      3.  rolling ladders  Rolling ladders allow users to climb short distances that are not necessarily related to shelving systems and are too close to floor level to justify the use of a fixed ladder.  Rolling ladders are the ultimate choice for miscellaneous industrial applications.


     4.   office laddersOffice ladders are typically used to retrieve various supplies stored on shelves above arms reach.  They are also used by maintenance crews for some repair tasks. 


How do you know if you need a industrial ladder or a specialized work platform? 
If you are climbing from one floor surface to another floor surface, you need a ladder as a tool of transit.  You also need a ladder when you are temporarily climbing to a higher level to manipulate products, manage inventory, or retrieve tools that you can safely carry back down the ladder.

You need a work platform when you are required to work for an extended period of time at a specific elevation that lacks a sufficiently stable surface that can support your weight and the weight of any tools you use.  Work platforms are commonly used to safely elevate construction workers in unfinished parts of the building. 

Another simple way to see this is to view a commercial ladder as a tool for taking you to a higher level, and a work platform as a tool that creates a higher level for you.
