The new version of standard EN 131-4 published in June stipulates that hinged ladders longer than three metres in extended state must be equipped with a wider base. The HYMER telescopic ladders 4142 and 8142 with their practical folding stabilisers are based on an innovative solution. Holzbau Prinz tested these products for us in everyday applications.
“Our daily work includes interior fitting, façade construction and timber frame work at height. Nothing goes without a ladder,” says Craig Goodman, carpenter and employee at Holzbau Prinz. Craig Goodman and his colleagues prefer telescopic ladders for their work. “We often work at different heights. We use them every day because you can easily adjust telescopic ladders to the height you need. They can be used as leaning ladders, free-standing step ladders or step ladders on stairways – in the end they are suitable for many different applications. And the practical folding stabilisers on the HYMER telescopic ladders 4142 and 8142 come with a load of special features.
- The folding stabilisers ensure an extremely safe and sturdy footing in any situation.
- The compact size of the ladders when folded and retracted means they can be easily stowed in fully packed company vans.
- Since the folding stabilisers on the ladders are adjustable to any application, they are especially flexible for use in confined spaces.
We have really grown to appreciate the versatility and high-quality workmanship of the ladders and other convincing arguments when it comes to safety and user friendliness. We would definitely recommend the HYMER telescopic ladders 4142 and 8142 to prospective users.”
