When it comes to shopping ladders, there are so many variations to choose from; from extension ladders to roof ladders, step ladders to multipurpose ladders, there are so many options available it can make deciding which one is right for you a challenge.

The concept of ladders is over 10,000 years old, but a relatively new player on the scene is the telescopic ladder. Only invented in 1989, the telescopic ladder isn’t as well established as some of the other ladders, but it’s not without its advantages.

If you’re looking for a new ladder and have found yourself considering the telescopic ladder, we’re here to tell you the top 5 reasons you should consider using a telescopic ladder.

Top 5 Benefits of Telescopic Ladders:

Convenient Storage

Telescopic ladders are perhaps the most space-efficient ladder on the market; they can collapse down into smaller sizes only a few feet tall, and in some cases so flat they’re only a few inches wide, depending on what ladder you’re looking at. This makes telescopic ladders a great option for those with limited storage space. It also means that it can be stored in a variety of different places – garden shed or workshop, car boot or van, the opportunities are endless with telescopic ladders.

Easy to Transport

Due to their ability to collapse down into a small size and their typically light frames, telescopic ladders are incredibly easy to transport. They can fit into the boot of even the smallest cars, and can be easily handled by a single individual.

Adjustable Height

A lot of ladders have the option to set different heights suited to your needs, but telescopic ladders are possibly the most accurate. You can select the exact number of rungs you need, a feature unique to telescopic ladders.

Safe and Secure

Telescopic ladders have a number of safety features that make them safe and secure to use – something that should always be considered when browsing ladders. Each ladder has different safety features, but you can generally expect to find a locking mechanism that secures the rungs in place after the appropriate height has been selected, as well as grips on the rungs that ensure you don’t slip during use. These safety features are especially important when you're purchasing roof ladders that you'll be using at taller heights. 

Anytime, Anywhere

Telescopic ladders are incredibly versatile, and they can be used in a wide variety of settings. They can be used out of doors, for example when clearing out guttering or accessing the roof, as well as for a wide range of indoor jobs. Once you have a telescopic ladder in your tool kit, you'll be able to complete a variety of DIY or professional jobs with ease.
