Japanese Tripod Ladder
The Japanese tripod ladder was the original design created to cope with the problem of working at height on sloping or uneven ground. As anyone who’s ever had to cut a high bush or trim the branches of a tree will know, the traditional A-Frame ladder struggles to cope with ground which isn’t completely flat, particularly if you’re moving to reach over more than arm’s length at the top.
Japanese tripod ladders were the innovative answer to this problem, utilising three legs to offer greater stability and a wider splayed base. What’s more, the single leg could be pushed close to the centre of an object such as a bush, allowing someone at the top of the ladder far greater access.
Although the Japanese tripod ladder was an excellent design in its own right, we felt it could be made even better, That’s why we improved it to come up with the Henchman Tripod, a product which offers such improved stability and security that it’s become the ladder of choice for organisations such as the NHS, the National Trust and councils, schools and colleges across the UK.
