The size or height needed in a step ladder depends on the intended application. The reach of a step ladder is higher than the height of the step ladder itself. The reach of a ladder consists of the height of the ladder, plus the reach of operator, so it’s important to measure the height based on the intended application. Calculating your desired reach will help determine the type of step ladder needed. To reach more than one story, you may need an extension ladder instead.
