FAQs
What size extension ladder do I need?

We offer extension ladders in a range of sizes and heights, from 16 feet to 40 feet. As a general rule, extension ladders should be about 10 feet longer than the project’s height to ensure proper setup and use.

How much do extension ladders weigh?

Extension ladders greatly vary in weight, ranging anywhere from 20 pounds to 150 pounds, depending on what material they are made from. Aluminum ladders are more lightweight but less durable and weather resistant. Fiberglass ladders are heavier but more durable. It is important to note that extension ladders have load capacities — the heavier the ladder, the higher the load capacity. Need more help? Contact one of our equipment experts for further guidance.

How long are extension ladders?

When using an extension ladder, it is important to measure the height needed for the intended application, as the maximum height of an extension ladder does not correspond to its actual reach. Considering the reach and angle at which an extension ladder is placed from a wall, a 16-foot extension ladder can be safely used at a height of 9 feet.
