Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 8 January 2004Someone has offered me a ladder to get started.
2.47 m double extension.
Is this big enough for Domestic??
Posted by fez (fez), 9 January 2004If it's free take it, otherwise I'd say it was too short. I use a 2.6m triple ex which is suitable for most 2 storey domestic work. It has a working height of around 6m.
You can pick a trade one up for around £100.
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 9 January 2004Hi Mark
The ladder i use most is 3.66 mtrs so i think the one you have been offered is a bit on the short side.
Posted by pdhanson (Silly Philly), 9 January 2004I use 3.5m triples, though I only use the 3rd section occasionally as it hurts your back to carry. Trade duty is a must. Though more expensive than domestic duty, they are safer.
Before I got these, I used 3.5m double section. I'd say anything smaller is a bit too short
