Michigan Ladder Step Stools & Ladders
The Michigan Ladder Company has been in business for more than 100 years, manufacturing high-quality, over-engineered folding step ladders and extension ladders of several different lengths. The company's models are made from southern yellow pine, hemlock, fiberglass and aluminum, each with different qualities to meet the specific demands of both professionals and homeowners.
Choose Michigan Ladder for the Strength of Their Construction Each material that the company uses to construct its ladders is rugged and durable. Wood extension and folding ladders consist of four species of southern yellow pine, trees that provide the hardest and densest of all pine wood, grown throughout the Southern United States under rigorous forest conservation management. Michigan Ladder puts a proprietary silk finish on all wood ladders, greatly reducing splinters and chips.
The company's other models are fiberglass, a glass-reinforced plastic resin that is dent and warp-resistant, and aluminum, meeting or exceeding all OSHA and ANSI safety and product standards. Their fiberglass versions have oversize rivets and precision locking mechanisms, and their feet are clad in a proprietary Super Shoe that provides protection for the bottom and prevents slippage.
Match Your Needs to the Different Types The company labels its products according to ANSI duty-rating tests, ranging from Type III, II, 1 and 1A, or from light-duty household to medium-duty commercial, as well as heavy-duty to heavy duty industrial. Many of the company's models exceed maximum working loads for those categories, loads that also include tools, material and the persons themselves. Each type of material has its own benefits. Wood and fiberglass models do not conduct electricity when dry and clean, while aluminum is lightweight and weather resistant. Fiberglass is also long-lasting and corrosion- and weather-resistant.
How Tall are the Step Ladders? Michigan Ladder manufactures step versions from 3 feet to 16 feet of elevation, providing from 1 to over 13 feet of standing height. They come in 2 to 6-step models, all with secure, stable rungs that provide plenty of traction. The company uses industry-leading spreader braces and A and N-frame construction for enhanced strength and durability.
What Other Types Does Michigan Ladder Make? Besides extension and folding ladders, the company manufactures special-purpose models, as well as single long models without extensions. Other of the company's designs include platform folding ladders, with a wide step platform and work shelf for 180-degree movement, folding extension models with stand bases for storage and tree-surgery ladders. The company also manufactures aluminum extension planks for ladder jack setups.
What are Some Safety Tips? Whenever you use a folding ladder or stool, always make sure that it's open fully and that the spreader braces are snapped securely into place. When you climb it, always face forward to your work surface, and descend the same way. Stay in the middle of the rungs, and do not stand on the shelf or braces. Don't over reach -- be sure you're positioned within a comfortable arm's length of your work area. If you feel you're leaning to the side or backward, re-position the ladder.
