How to pick the right rolling ladder

View our blog post on rolling ladders for a comprehensive guide on choosing and buying a rolling ladder!

Ladder height decision

Determining the height of rolling ladders

Height

The first step in the process is to define the access required. Know your space and your needs, then select the ladder that best suits those needs. The rule of thumb here is to have the top platform come within 5 feet of the highest required access point.

A free consultation from EGA Products is a great option to define this need. Please, don’t hesitate to reach out!

Width

Figure out the width that works best for your space. Usually, there needs to be sufficient space to pass the ladder. That said, the more extensive the ladder width, the better, as the width helps reduce any minor lateral motion from diverse work conditions. Again, a consultation is a good bet for this step as well.

Portability

Decide if the ladder needs to go through doorways or make tight corners. While often overlooked, this aspect may be the most critical element in determining which ladder is ideal.

Safe Use

Consider safety at all times. Rolling ladders are inherently more reliable and sturdy than free-standing extension ladders, but be sure to read up on ladder safety when choosing a ladder. EGA offers all OSHA compliant rolling ladders.

Customization

EGA has a staff of engineering and design professionals that can work with you to define needs and work through possible customization options to meet the needs of the job duties.

Have a look at an extensive selection of mechanics, stock-picking, safety inclineoffice, semi trailer access, and folding rolling ladders. Or, if all that’s needed is something to repair an existing ladder, check out replacement parts and accessories.

Rolling Ladder Safety Tips

Here are some tips and friendly reminders to be safe with your material handling equipment. Rolling ladders are only as good as its operator – practice safe ladder usage. Be smart!

Inspect your rolling ladder hardware

OSHA mandates inspection, and in the recent update to regulations (Standards – 29 CFR) they set forth a design standard that should be used to verify condition on an annual basis. Look for light bends, missing parts, or other damages before use. Other things to look out for include:

    • broken welds
    • bent caster wheels
    • loose parts/fasteners
    • wobble or rocking motion on even, level ground
    • insecure joints
    • working parts non-operational

Pick the right rolling ladder for the job

Choose to use the best possible ladder for the job required. Portable warehouse equipment is incredibly helpful; however, when misused, they can lead to a preventable outcome. Construction details like step width, the height of the platform, and the slope angle of the steps. A steeper climb usually means the operator must face the ladder while going up and down.

Learn Ladder Safety Tips and Train Before Use

Also in 29 CFR, there’s a lengthy description of ladder usage (request a free EGA usage poster). The first rule of ladder usage is the three-point rule – keep three points of contact on the ladder at all times. Heavy objects should be team lifted, not carried up the ladder. The bulk of ladder injuries happen while objects and packages get transported up and down steps/rungs. Check out the ladder usage app from NIOSH for mobile access to user assistance. This concept may seem like a no-brainer, but training should happen before use.

Maintain Your Rolling Ladder

Keep the unit clean, so it isn’t able to corrode. Use recommend replacement parts if and when necessary. Of course, don’t misuse the ladder. Examples include storing items on the ladder and refrain from putting unnecessary or unintended loads onto the ladder.

Rolling Ladder Tread Types

Tread Options. EZY Tread, Perforated Grip Strut, and Anti-Slip Vinyl Rubber 

Rolling ladders can have three different tread/step types. Each tread offers different advantages and disadvantages. Learn more on our blog post about the types of treads on rolling ladders.

EZY TREAD – Items made with perforated EZY Tread ® are designed to provide just enough grip to lock the foot in place, while still allowing the autonomy to work freely. EZY Tread won’t wear down like the completion’s imported rubber-like material, and it performs well in concert with a multitude of work footwear.

  • Optimal for clean or standard duty areas
  • Formed from a solid steel sheet
  • Eliminates sagging metal and front edge wear common with inferior products
  • Economical

GRIP STRUT TREAD – Grip strut tread is a patented technology for safety grating that’s durable, and has rust-resisting properties. Standard mill-galvanized finish prevents corrosion for a long lasting surface. The serrated surface can grip boot/shoe soles securely in all directions. The open design makes it easier to clean, and the non-slip patented technology is perfect for inside or outside, where a multitude of hazards can otherwise cause dangerous work conditions.

  • Good when surfaces are less predictable (oily or wet)
  • Formed from a solid steel sheet
  • Steel or Aluminum
  • Aggressive sure-footed design

VINYL RUBBER TREAD – Not all vinyl is made equal. Lesser vinyl rubber materials will crack and crumble after short-term use. EGA builds products for long-term use, so the use of a flimsy rubber tread wouldn’t make sense. Designed to stick outsoles for safe usage, EGA’S vinyl step tread is the industry standard bearer.

  • Best case when a solid step is preferred
  • Softer on the foot
  • Slip-resistant
  • Textured surface
