Boraam Step Stools & Ladders

Climbing aids simplify household maintenance tasks, provide extra reach or make it easy to step into or out of tall vehicles. Brands such as Boraam, Rubbermaid and Little Giant offer a broad range of step stools and ladders designed to meet the needs of both home users and construction professionals. These products include easy-to-store folding stools, multi-position ladders and lightweight, single-step molded stools, making it easy to find a tool that provides the extra height you need.

Enjoy Extra Reach With a Step Stool
The primary function of these products is to extend your reach. Use one to access high shelves in kitchen cupboards, change overhead light fixtures or clean hard-to-reach locations. Users with impaired mobility can also use a climbing aid with a single step to get into or out of bed or climb down from a high vehicle such as an RV. Stools typically have one to four steps, and most feature skid-proof coatings that provide sure footing. Models with slip-resistant feet and tip-proof designs offer stable support when climbing.

A Step Stool is a Versatile Home Accessory
You can use many of these products as more than climbing aids. Wooden stools with fixed steps can double as multi-shelf side tables or backless chairs. Use a durable plastic model with a single step as a seat while gardening, or place one in a child's bathroom to provide kids with the extra height they need to brush their teeth or wash their hands. They can also double as a shoe rack in a closet or provide shelf space for potted plants next to a sunny window.

Should You Choose a Step Stool or Step Ladder?
Both these products extend your reach, but there are differences between them. Stools are typically less than 32 inches tall, and most are light and easy to move. Step ladders are usually between 6 and 20 feet long. They are heavier than stools, and longer models may require two people to move. They may also have a higher weight capacity than step stools. Be sure the climbing aid you choose puts the area you need to access within reach without stretching or leaning. It should also be rated to hold the weight of a climber, plus any tools or materials they may need.

What's the Difference Between a Molded and Folding Step Stool?
Molded stools are typically made of plastic and have a rigid shape. Most have one or two steps. Folding styles are often taller than molded products and made from heavier materials such as aluminum or wood. They're hinged and fold flat when they're not in use, making them easy to store. A molded stool may be a better choice for kids because they don't have hinges that can pinch small fingers.

Which Step Stool Material is Best?
Most stools feature wood, metal or plastic construction. Wood is an attractive choice for products you use as furniture or store in plain sight. Aluminum or steel climbing aids are often stronger than products made from other materials. Plastic combines lightness with strength. It's also impervious to moisture and easy to clean, making plastic stools ideal for outdoor or bathroom use.
