Rolling Hook Ladder
If you are looking for the most functional rolling ladder, this is the ideal type of ladder for you. This rolling hardware design has single rollers at the top of the ladder which allow the ladder to glide quietly and smoothly every time. The top rollers are paired with the wheels on the bottom of the ladder to create an effortless roll from side to side - you will only need to use one finger to roll it. What sets this type of ladder hardware apart from the full rolling, is the ability to be able to lift the ladder off of the rail and relocate it to another rail. This means you could use the ladder in multiple locations.
The wheels at the bottom have been designed with safety in mind and there is an automatic brake which is applied when you stand on the ladder giving you extra security. 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.
The rolling hook ladder is the perfect choice for rooms where you want to use the rail on different walls such as a kitchen or dressing room. The effortless rolling motion is ideal if you intend to use your ladder regularly and being able to move the ladder really opens up the possibilities of where you can use the ladder.
Recommended places to use this ladder hardware include; Kitchens, Libraries, Shelving, Dressing Rooms, Retail Spaces, Offices, Storage Rooms, Restaurants and Bars.

Bespoke / Made to Measure Ladders
To customise your ladder with our made-to-measure service, simply specify the height at which you want to mount the rail, measured from the floor to the center of the rail that your ladder will slide along. We offer custom height ladders ranging from 3ft to 14ft, this is referring to the side length of the ladder.
The ladder rails or poles are an essential component in the ladder kit and your ladder will roll along them. They are made of high-quality 25mm solid aluminum, ensuring durability, as they are not hollow.
These rails are available in 6ft (1828mm) and 8ft (2438mm) lengths, which can be connected using a joining kit to create longer rail runs. Alternatively, you can customise the size after you receive your order by cutting them on-site. Rail brackets support the rails, and each end should be finished with a rail end cap.
To simplify the ordering process, use the Build your Ladder Order builder. It helps you select the right rail length and automatically adds the necessary rails, joining kits, rail brackets, and rail end caps for each rail run. If you are looking for brass hardware - shop here.
Cutting the rails:
If you need to cut your brass rail during your installation process, we recommend that you wrap the rail with painters’ tape where the cut is to be made, this will minimise the chipping of the paint/plating. Use a fresh-bladed hack saw with a metal cutting blade, and a good quality mitre box. Alternatively, you could use a standard mitre saw with a carbide blade, or a wood cutting blade, again ensuring you use a fresh blade. After cutting, slowly and carefully unwrap the tape.
Important Note: It's important to note that the aluminum rails have a sprayed paint finish (unless plated brass), which may show manufacturing marks caused by hooks used during the spraying process. Once installed, these marks will be hidden from view.
We have recently added Brushed Brass to our range of ladder ironmongery. To shop the Brushed Brass finish - click here.
