Support Rods

The rule of thumb is that a ladder has one less step then its height in feet. For example, an 8ft ladder has x7 steps and therefore requires x7 support rods. 

Ladder Height
Rail Height
Quantity of support rods required
7ft Ladder 2007mm x6 Support Rods
8ft Ladder 2311mm x7 Support Rods
9ft Ladder 2620mm x8 Support Rods
10ft Ladder 2920mm x9 Support Rods


*Rail Height Measurement = Measure straight up from the finished floor level to the centre of the rail.
