Due to their non-conductibility with electricity and heat, fibreglass ladders provide a great option for electrical work or construction around live power sources. Their insulation between the user and the earth not only makes for safe applications near or around electrical hazards, but they offer your employees a stable and comfortable work tool to carry out everyday tasks with. At Team Systems, we have fibreglass platform ladders, fibreglass extension ladders, fibreglass step ladders and more available. Our warehouses are located in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane, making us reliable providers of industrial fibreglass ladders throughout Australia.
Given that fibreglass ladders have enhanced resistance to electricity and heat, they are commonly used in areas where electrical hazards may exist. That being said, you can also use them in warehouses, factories, construction sites, retail stores, laboratories, offices, schools and more. With our heavy-duty fibreglass ladders, you can increase the security and productivity of your workplace.
Our fibreglass ladders are available in varying dimensions and load capacities. As these impact how you use them, it is recommended that you ensure the ladder you select for your workplace has the right specifications for your intended application.
Bailey fibreglass platform ladders such as our Bailey 4 Step 150kg Fibreglass Platform Step Ladder are built for use on industrial work sites where greater strength and safety is required. With wide anti-slip 49cm x 40cm platforms and 90cm high handrails, these fibreglass ladders are ideal for a range of electrical applications in industrial environments. They also have anti-slip rubber boots for added safety and Punchlock® tread designs for torsional rigidity of the overall ladder frame. Additionally, they are made in 2 steps to 8 step forms, they have a multi-function handrail/accessories holder and they comply with Australian and New Zealand Standards 1892.3.
We also have our Bailey 6 Step 170kg Fibreglass Platform Ladder – JOB Station, which is fitted with optional ‘DropLok’ accessories that convert its handrail into a 15kg Job Station. Fibreglass ladders like these feature fully reinforced polypropylene platforms with metal inserts and trapezoidal tread designs that provide an incredibly strong tread to stile joint. They also come with convenient carry handles for versatile mobility and a fully integrated bracing and castor system with a patented industry-lead design. We supply these fibreglass ladders in 3 steps to 12 step forms.
The Indalex Pro Series of fibreglass platform ladders showcases ladders that are made to incorporate the best methods of joining the industrial grade structural components to prevent joints loosening, and are available in 2 steps to 12 step forms. For example, our Indalex 7 Step Pro Series Fibreglass Platform Ladder utilises a 3-piece rung joint system and has solid aluminium rivets to fasten its steps to the fibreglass pultruded side rails. Moreover, extra-strong spreader bars and foot covers help improve the life of this ladder, and it is supplied with a 5-year warranty for faulty materials or workmanship, enhanced by a 10-year warranty for all structural aluminium components. Additionally, it has a 150kg load rating and complies with Australian and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1892.3:1996.
Being extendable to reach greater heights, fibreglass extension ladders like our Indalex Fibreglass Extension Ladder – 5.2m to 8.9m incorporates a fully automatic latching system that ensures the upper section will not descend out of control. They have Level-Arc for use on sloping ground, while swivel feet mode is also an option. Furthermore, they are equipped with heavy-duty “I” beam stiles and a 3-piece rung joint system for durability during operation. Additionally, they are manufactured to Australian and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1892 and are supplied in many sizes.
When using your fibreglass ladder, it is important that you consider the following to preserve your employee’s safety. It is recommended that you always secure your ladder on a solid and stable surface so it can remain still during operation. You should also use your hands and feet to keep 3 points of contact with the fibreglass ladder at all times. Moreover, since fibreglass extension ladders are not inherently self-supporting, be sure that the footing and all locking ladder hooks are secure before operating them. Furthermore, you should wear appropriate clothing and non-slip footwear, and be sure to recheck your ladder if you have to leave it temporarily. Finally, once you have finished using your fibreglass ladder, prepare it for its next use by checking that there are no loose or damaged components, cleaning it (if necessary) and storing it in a covered location. By following these measures, you can provide a safe working environment for your workers.
