Extra Product Detail

The professional Henchman tripod ladder is the ideal replacement for a traditional stepladder. Safer, more durable and easier to transport, this tripod ladder keeps professionals safe when working at height on sloping and flat ground, both indoors and outdoors.

The professional ladder is built from thicker aluminium profiles, to make it stronger and more resistant to wear and tear from regular transportation and use.

The tripod design can be placed in any position safely. As long as all three feet are in contact with the ground, your professional ladder will not wobble. Each leg is adjustable to allow for sloping surfaces, making working on any kind of surface much safer. 

The ladder features a 7” / 18cm deep platform rung designed to make standing more comfortable while you work.

When standing on the platform, you can tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work.

The platform sits at the top 3ft / 0.9m of the ladder’s full height - no matter what size your ladder is. For example, if you have the 8ft / 2.4m ladder, the platform sits at 5ft / 1.5m high. This means when you’re standing on the platform, you’re standing 5ft / 1.5m above the ground.

When standing on the platform, the remaining 3ft / 0.9m of the ladder’s length is designed specifically to give your legs room to tuck into the frame. This provides you with more stability while working. This unique design also prevents you from bashing your shins on the rung above whilst working. 

Always be cautious of falling debris when using any ladder as impact may destabilise and/or damage the ladder.

What size do I need?

All sizes provided are with the extendable legs fully retracted.

To avoid ordering the wrong sized ladder, it’s important you know exactly how high you need to reach before you order.

For example, if you’re using your ladder to do landscape gardening, we suggest picking a ladder that’s more or less the same height as the highest area you need to reach. 

Measuring that height before you order will ensure you choose the right size ladder.

Heights are with extendable legs retracted, based on a 6ft / 1.8m person, and will vary depending on user and tools.

Working Height
(Based on the user being 6ft / 180cm)
Ladder Size Platform Height Hip Level Reaching Overhead
6ft / 1.8m 3ft / 0.9m 6ft / 1.8m 10ft / 3.0m
8ft / 2.4m 5ft / 1.5m 8ft / 2.4m 12ft / 3.6m
10ft / 3m 7ft / 2.1m 10ft / 3m 14ft / 4.2m
12ft / 3.6m 9ft / 2.7m 12ft / 3.6m 16ft / 4.8m


How our sizing works

The height of our ladders is the total height from the very bottom to the very top of the ladder with the legs fully retracted. This 12ft / 3.6m ladder measures 12ft / 3.6m tall.

The tripod ladder’s platform sits 3ft / 0.9cm from the top of the ladder. When standing on this, the top of your ladder will be in line with your waist. That means, this 12ft / 3.6m ladder, your waist will also be at 12ft / 3.6m. 

Your shoulders will be approximately 2ft/60cm higher than your waist. We always recommend working between your waist and shoulder height. This will give you a working height range of 12-14ft / 3.6-4.2m, waist to shoulder level. 

So, if you need to reach between 12-14ft / 3.6-4.2m, our 12ft / 3.6m will suit your needs perfectly.
