Three-Way Combination Ladders: FAQs
What is a 3-way ladder?
3-way ladders are a type of combination ladder. They are designed to be versatile and adaptable, changing configurations to function as three different ladder types (for example: a step ladder, an extension ladder and a stairwell ladder). Three-way ladders aren’t the only type of combination ladder – there are other variants, such as five-way ladders.
What are the benefits of three-way ladders?
The main advantage of a 3 way ladder: you get three ladders for the price one! Three-way ladders also have practical benefits - if you travel around for work and need to bring your tools with you, it is much easier to transport a single ladder than three different ones.
Are all three-way ladders the same?
The short and simple answer to this question is no, they are not. While it’s common for three-way ladders to have similar configurations, there are also many features that set three-way ladders apart from one another. When trying to determine which three-way ladder is best suited to your needs, it’s important to consider the height and weight of the ladder, what type of use it’s suitable for (trade / professional use vs domestic use), as well as rung type and what the ladder is made of.
