Hook Over Ladders

If you are looking for a hook-over ladder with beauty and function this is the ideal choice for you. You can use this type to hook your ladder onto the rail and then unhook when you want to take the ladder off the rail. The 'sliding hook' hardware is more sophisticated than just a hook though, as it allows you to lift the ladder and slide the ladder along the rail at the same time. This means that you don't have to completely lift the ladder off the rail in order to place your ladder in the required location. Instead you just need to lift the weight of the ladder off of the floor and walk it to the place that you need to use it. If you want to move the rail to another location in the room then you can simply lift the whole ladder off of the rail.

The two hooks on the top of the ladder are paired with the non-slip rubberised feet at the bottom of the ladder.

To make sure your ladder can be neatly stowed out of the way when it is not in use there is an inbuilt mechanism to allow the ladder to be stowed vertically against the wall/joinery.

Recommended places to use this ladder hardware include; Kitchens, Libraries, Bookcases, Shelving, Dressing Rooms, Retail Spaces, Offices, Storage Rooms, Restaurants and Bars and more.



The hooked hardware at the top of the ladder allows you to lift the weight of the ladder off of the floor and slide it along the rail without needing to lift the ladder off completely.

The hooks have an mechanism that takes into consideration any changes in floor height.

You can stow the ladder in a vertical position

Can be paired with any ladder height between 5ft - 13ft.

The feet at the bottom of the ladder have rubberised soles to create extra safety and grip.

Things to consider when using this hardware

You will need to be able to lift the weight of the ladder when you want to move it along the rail to the desired location. If you don't want to have to lift the ladder we suggest using the Rolling Hardware kit instead.

If you want to open a cupboard door above the ladder then you will need to make sure you have enough clearance above the rail. Please look at the clearances notes in the dimensions brochure.

The Rails

The ladder rails/poles are what your ladder will hook onto and/or roll along. They are high quality and made from 25mm solid aluminium (not hollow).
The ladder rails are supplied in 6ft (1828mm) and 8ft (2438mm) lengths along with a 90 degree curved corner rail which can be all be joined together (with a joining kit) to make longer runs of rails or you can cut them down on-site to create the perfect size for your space. The rails are held up by rail brackets and finishes at each end with a rail end cap.
Your Ladder Order builder allows you to select the overall running length of rail that you need and it will automatically add the correct amount of rails, joining kits, rail brackets and rail end caps that you will need for each run of rail.
