DAVIDSON LADDER, INC. Step Stools & Ladders

Davidson Ladder, Inc. is part of the Louisville Ladder company, a leading manufacturer of wood, metal and fiberglass step ladders and stools as well as scaffolds, planks and stages. The brand's product lineup includes a wide selection of high-quality industrial and domestic ladders.

Consider the Merits of Different Ladder Materials
Davidson and Louisville make ladders and stools from aluminum, steel and fiberglass. Each of these materials has its advantages and demerits. For example, aluminum is lightweight and does not corrode. It is lighter and resists rust better than steel. However, steel is stronger than aluminum and does not dent as easily when hit. Lastly, steel is a poor conductor of electricity while aluminum is an excellent conductor. Users should avoid using either type of ladders around electricity. When changing light bulbs or examining electrical fixtures, use a fiberglass ladder or stool. Fiberglass is safe to use near power lines and cables because it is a non-conductive material.

Choosing the Right Davidson Ladder - Step Ladder or Stool
Besides build material, other factors to consider includes size, style, load capacity and duty rating. While the brand's step ladders range from 2 to 20 feet in length, its step stools measure between 1 and 4 feet long. There are also multiple style options to choose from. These range from twin front step and platform ladders to folding and wheeled step stools. Load capacities and duty ratings are related. There are five grades available starting from light-duty ladders and stools with a maximum load capacity of 200 pounds to special duty ones that can take up to 375 pounds.

What is the Difference between a Step Ladder and a Step Stool?
A step stool is a type of ladder. It is typically a short step ladder. Generally, a step ladder can be as short as 3 feet which is the upper limit for a stool. For this brand, the smallest step ladder is 2 feet high, and it qualifies as a stool.

How Does a Step Ladder Differ from Other Types of Ladder?
Besides step ladders, the other major types of ladders are straight, extension and adjustable. While a step ladder has two pairs of legs and supports itself, straight and extension ladders only have one pair each and are not self-supporting. Therefore, you need to prop them against a wall or a roof. Extension ladders have sliding segments that can increase or reduce the lengths. Adjustable ladders also have movable sections. However, their appeal is the ability to transform between other types of ladders.

What Do Step Ladder Ratings Mean?
The five ladder ratings are 3, 2, 1, 1A and 1AA. A step ladder or stool with a duty rating of 3 is a meant for light-duty household tasks and has a weight capacity of 200 pounds. Grade 2 ladders are professional or medium-duty ladders that can take loads up to 225 pounds. Grade 1 ladders have a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds and are commercial or heavy-duty ladders. Extra heavy or industrial duty ladders can bear loads up to 300 pounds while special duty ladders will support up to 375 pounds.
