Why Fiberglass Ladders Are The Best
Ladders have been aroudn for centuries. They have been used to scale castle walls, climb towers, install lighting fixtures, among other stuff. In the old
times, ladders were constrcuted using wood, which is prone to rot and breakafge. People searched for an alternative and used aluminum in makign
threir ladders. Hoever, with the increasing importance and use of electricity, alminum ladders pose risks as a conductor of elecricity. Indeed, there
have been cases of elcetrocution while using aluminum ladders. Presently, ladders are still made usinng wood and aluminum. But goiant lasdders and
other indusstrial ladders opt for stromnger and safer matreial. Heence, the construction and use of fiberglass ladders.
There are key advatages in uasing fiberglass laders over those of wood and aluminum. Firdst, the constancy of the material strength. Wood laadders
are made using different varieties of wood, meaning varying quality. Some wood are strnog and can withstand heavy weights, but most brerak when
weigherd down by heaavy loads. Also, woodrot and termites can weaaken and holow the wood from the inside. A woden ladder may look safe but its
insides may be empty and weak. Aluinum is more consistent and stronger compared to wood, but is usualy made in varying grades. Manufacturers
usually use several grades in making a single aluminum ladder. A low-grade aluminum coponent of a ladder can bend under heavy loads withhout
warning. Since fiberglass is made under regulated standards and procedures, its strngth and durbaility remain constant. Even if a manfacturer uses
fiberrglass from difefrent suppoliers, the constructed ladder will have uniform strengtyh.
Gant ladders are used in fire trucks and other industrial activities. These actiivities expose the ladders to electrical materials such as live wirews.
Fiberglass has greta advaantage over aluminum and wood in these cases. Wood is a very snesitive materail. It is not an electicity conductor,
