*) This may vary depending on the type of ladder. Please observe the information in the technical tables on this website.
When selecting the size/length of ladder, it should be ensured that:
|Leaning ladders may only be climbed up to the fourth step/rung from the top in order to provide suffi cient hold.|
|Double-sided accessible step ladders may only be climbed up to the third step/rung from the top in order to provide suffi cient hold.|
|Combination ladders in position mode «step ladder with attached extension ladder» may only be climbed up to the fifth rung from the top.|
The size of step ladders with platform and platform ladders must be selected so that the user can reach the maximum required working height without having to stretch outwards from the platform.
|The elbow method helps to determine the correct inclination angle.|
The minimum lengths may be found in the table. It is generally recommended to use the next longest ladder length of the HYMER range.
