ALUMINIUM DUAL PURPOSE STEP & STRAIGHT LADDERS
Our Aluminium Dual-Purpose Step & Straight Ladder is a lightweight yet rigid step ladder designed for Australian professionals seeking the ultimate in height safety. Used as a step ladder, it extends in one motion to a straight ladder, with tapered rear section for increased stability.
One of the many reasons Ladamax is the preferred brand for tradies is thanks to our exclusive failsafe designs. Like all of our ladders, our Aluminium Dual-Purpose Step & Straight Ladder is equipped with our signature safety feature, ‘Swagelock’ which ensures 50% extra strength. The Swagelock method is different in that it does not require the use of ‘rivets’ when connecting step treads or rungs to the ladder side rails. Thanks to Swagelock, tortional rigidity is increased, twist is reduced and the risk of tread or rung collapse is eliminated, effectively reducing the risk of workplace accidents, as well as increasing the lifespan of your product. In the event of a huge overload, Ladamax step tread will only bend, unlike others which may collapse completely.
Other safety features include a stronger full gusset base brace system to ensure a solid foundation (“Gusset Gutz”), a stable tapered rear frame for added strength, a double hollow step tread processed and swaged through side rails for added strength, a failsafe step that can never shear under normal use, no rivets to shear or rust, no holes to elongate, large solid feet with strongest foot connection, plated for extra support, as well as stainless steel connectors.
Using a range of premium quality products, Ladamax ladders are lighter and more portable than our competitors, without sacrificing strength.
All of our ladders are stress tested to 150kg to ensure maximum safety for our users as per the AS 1892 safety standard which sets out the minimum recommended safe practices and requirements for the selection, use and maintenance of portable ladders.
