Extension ladders are portable ladders that feature two or more sections that travel in guides or brackets, enabling them to be adjustable in length. As they are not self-supporting, they require a stable structure to be grounded on so that they can withstand the intended load. Accommodating a range of applications, extension ladders offer employees a safe and efficient way of carrying out everyday access tasks. At Team Systems, we have both aluminium extension ladders and fibreglass extension ladders, proving to be suitable for all kinds of industrial environments. With warehouses located in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane, we are dependable providers of heavy-duty extension ladders throughout Australia.

Aluminium Extension Ladders
Aluminium extension ladders like our Indalex Aluminium Extension Ladder – 3.2m to 5.3m are anodised for enhanced corrosion resistance and lower retention of dirt and grime. With anti-slip rungs and feet, an anti-twist 3-piece strong rung joint and an automatic ladder lock, these ladders are built for security in the workplace. Moreover, these ladders are also equipped with heavy-duty I-beam side rails and equal-width base and fly sections that stiffen the ladder and give you an equal standing area at all heights. Manufactured to Australian and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1892, these ladders come with a 3-year warranty for faulty materials or workmanship, along with a 10-year warranty for all structural aluminium components.
Fibreglass Extension Ladders
For extension ladders that are resistant to electricity and heat, look no further than our selection of fibreglass extension ladders. For example, our Indalex Fibreglass Extension Ladder – 4.9m to 8.2m utilises fibreglass side rails and structural grade anodised aluminium rungs for greater strength in areas where electrical hazards exist. This fibreglass extension ladder features a fully automatic latching system to ensure the upper section will not descend out of control, as well as anti-slip moulded rubber feet for added safety. It is additionally manufactured to Australian and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1892.3.1996 and has a V-bracket with a rubber pad for applications against poles.

Ensuring Your Safety with Our Extension Ladders
When using your extension ladder in the workplace, there are a few things to consider in order to best maintain your safety. For example, since extension ladders are not self-supporting, you should ground them on a firm and level surface so they can withstand the intended load. You should also check that all locking ladder hooks are secure before climbing your ladder, and be sure to wear appropriate clothing and non-slip footwear. Moreover, if you are working in an outdoor environment, steer clear of any power lines by at least 4 metres and try to be aware of your surroundings. Furthermore, refrain from leaving your extension ladder unattended and be careful when getting on and off your ladder so as to avoid tipping it or causing it to slide. Once you have finished using your extension ladder, prepare it for its next use by cleaning it (if necessary), storing it in a secure and covered location and checking that there are no loose or damaged components. By following these precautions, you can ensure maximum ladder safety regardless of the environment you work in.
