Base width will be wider
Single, extending and combination ladders that are higher than 3 meters will have a wider base width. This means that the bottom of the ladder should always be provided with a stability bar or bent beams. This gives you a more stable base and you can work more safely.
Ladder sections not removable
It is no longer allowed to disconnect the ladder section of ladders (of more than 3 meters). That means that, with to 2 and 3 piece ladders such as sliding and combination/extendible ladders, a ladder section can no longer be removed. This ensures that the ladder sections remain together and that you always work with a complete ladder.
With these changes, you will work even safer at heights. If you would like more information, please contact our consultants.
