The Ladders

Whether you choose Red Oak or Walnut the solid wood ladder will arrive unfinished and unassembled so you can add a paint, stain or lacquer to match your surrounding interior or
joinery

Stowaway

The clever designers at Quiet Glide have made sure that you can stow your ladder away vertically when not in use. This clever slider is built into the same mechanisms at the top of the ladder.

Safety

You need to feel as safe as
possible when climbing your ladder and that’s why the rolling wheels at the bottom of the ladder have all got an in-built brake that automatically applies when you mount the ladder.

Flexibility

There are so many uses for a ladder from high up storage in kitchens to sweeping bookcases. That’s why there are so many interchangeable hardware and ladder options to suit your style,
home and practical needs.

Design led

Not only are the products highly functional they are packed full of beautiful design details, such as
the solid wood ladders, smooth surfaces and turned wood grab rail at the top of the ladders.

The Rails

The rails are made from solid extruded aluminium which means they are high quality and the rails are not hollow.

The Types

Hook over Ladders

The sliding hook hardware allows you to hook your ladder on and off from the rail. This hardware should be paired with the non-slip feet at the bottom of the ladder. The hardware also has an inbuilt slider to allow the ladder to be stowed vertically against the wall/joinery.

Rolling Hook Ladders

The hook roller is a version of the full rolling hardware but with the added benefit of being about the remove the ladder from the rail
and relocate the ladder to another rail. This means you could use the ladder in multiple locations. Also paired with the braking wheeled feet this hardware also allows you to stow the ladder vertically.

Full Rolling Ladders

The classic rolling hardware is attached to the rail and has two quiet glide rollers on each side of the ladder. This hardware is paired with the braking bottom wheels to create a smooth, silent and effortless roll from side to side. The hardware also allows you to stow the ladder away vertically.

Corner Rolling Ladders

If you want a rolling ladder that can continue to roll around a corner then the swivel rolling hardware is for you. The swivel technology allows the ladder to roll around a curved 90 degree corner rail. You cannot remove this hardware from the rail but it is paired with braking wheeled feet and allows you to stow the ladder vertically when not in use.

How to order

1. Choose your hardware type

There are four different options to choose from depending on what your needs are.
1. Full rolling,
2. Hook rolling
3. Swivel rolling
4. Hook-over

2. Work out what you need

The most important thing to determine is the ladder height and the height at which you want to mount a rail onto your bookcase or cabinetry. Choose from a range of standard height ladders which have a predetermined height rail or opt for a custom height ladder.

See more information about ladder heights

*Don’t forget to add your ladder tread support rungs. These are metal rods that sit underneath each ladder tread giving your ladder strength and support.

3. Decide how long you want your rails

This is the side to side width that you want your ladder to roll or slide along. Choose from 6ft rails or 8ft rails which can be joined together using a joining kit to create longer rails, or cut them down on-site to the perfect size

4. Add your brackets and end caps

Once you have decided how many rails you want you will need to work out how many brackets you need to hold up your rail. There should be a gap between brackets of no more then 3ft (914mm). Finish off your rail exposed ends with an end cap kit.

5. Optional Accessories

Choose from some optional extras that will take your ladder to the next level. Add a wooden hand rail on both sides of your ladder or some grip treads to make your ladder steps non-slip.

Ladder Information

*Rail Mount Height – The height distance FFL to the centre of the rail.
*FFL – From floor level.

Ladder Heights

Work out which height ladder is best for your space. Choose from the standard height ladders using the listed rail height, FFL to the centre of the rail. If the standard height ladders won’t work for your needs let us know your rail mount height and we can make a custom height ladder for you.
