Finding the right ladder for you and your space
If you're in the market for a library ladder, you're probably looking for a stylish and functional addition to your home, this could be for an office, home library, kitchen, wardrobe or any room you desire. A library ladder can provide easy access to high shelves and cabinets, and it can also serve as a unique and visually appealing design element. However, with so many options available, it can be challenging to find the right ladder for your needs and space. Here are a few key factors to consider when shopping for a library ladder.
What size ladder will work for your space?
The ladder sits onto a rail which is mounted to your wall or joinery and this could be positioned on a shelf front midway up your bookcase or mounted at the very top. In a kitchen you might want to mount your ladder rail above tall cupboards with a row of smaller storage cupboards above the rail. Whatever your application, make sure to consult the technical information to ensure you have enough clearance space above the rail for your ladder.
The starting point for working out which height ladder you need is based on where you want to mount the ladder rail. If that height is already fixed then you might need to use one of the custom made to measure ladders. However, if you have flexibility over where you can mount the rail you could make use of a standard height ladder. These standard ladders have a pre-set height at which the rail needs to be mounted. The standard ladders are in stock and have a short lead-time making them a great choice if you want your ladder quickly.
When considering the weight of the ladder it is best to also consider the hardware. We offer rolling hardware options, which are heavier or a simple hook option which is lighter. Consider if you are wanting to be able to move the ladder around the space regularly or if you just need a static ladder.
