There’s no getting away from the fact that the traditional A-Frame ladder leaves quite a lot to be desired as far as stability and safety are concerned. The good news for anyone who has to work at height and doesn’t want to fall is that the adjustable ladder, in the shape of the Henchman 3 leg adjustable tripod ladder, offers a versatile and reliable solution.
The key to the stability of an adjustable ladder is that the three legs give it a large enough footprint to prevent the ladder shifting when the person using it is moving. The henchman adjustable ladder takes this principle a step further by offering either one leg or all three legs which can be altered by as much as 18”. Thanks to this, and wide feet which grip the ground, the 3 leg adjustable tripod ladder is equally stable on a sloped surface, a set of steps or in an unstable environment.
The adjustable ladder was originally developed with gardening jobs such as pruning trees or trimming hedges in mind, but it’s lightweight and versatile enough to work in any scenario – indoors or outdoors – in which the freedom to work without worrying that the ladder may slip or overbalance is of paramount importance.
