Of all the world records that are out there, this has to be our favourite one. The world's longest ladder! According to the Guinness World Records, the longest ladder ever recorded was 41.16m (135 foot) long! It was designed and made in 2005 by the Handwerks Museum in Austria. In total, it had 120 rungs! Imagine how long it would take to get from the bottom to the top... you'd probably have to stop for a break on the way up.

Now, although we don't have the world's longest ladder here at Ladders UK Direct, we do have some long ladders that you can use to reach up high. Let's take a look at some of the longest ladders we have on offer, they might just be the ones you need!

Double Section Rope Operated Extension Ladder

Our longest double extension ladder extends from a stored height of 5.94m to 10.71m! Again, it's about 30-something metres shy of the world's longest ladder, but it certainly will give you enough height to reach most gutters, lightbulbs and ceilings.

They're great for tradesmen and the rope mechanism makes them incredibly easy to operate! Even the longest ladders are easy to open and closed when you incorporate a pulley system, so don't worry about wrestling with your long ladder.

One of the great things about long extension ladders is that they collapse down into much smaller sizes. This makes transporting long ladders incredibly easy! Do you think the world's longest ladder was built in sections or in one long piece? Unlike our ladders (which can be transported pretty much anywhere) we doubt the world's longest ladder made many journeys. Imagine the size of the van you'd need! 

So, while we can't offer you the world's longest, most impractical ladder we can help you with some long and highly useful ladders! If you have a specific ladder length requirement, we may be able to help you find the perfect ladder over the phone. Call us on 01446 789538.
