I am going to share with you how to really choose a step ladder that is suitable for your needs, so that you, don’t end up buying the wrong type of step ladders. Honestly, most step ladders would be suitable for your general use, and usually, we would suggest people to buy higher step ladder than lower step ladders.

The worst thing that you want is to have a step ladder that is not tall enough, and you have to figure out where to store and keep the step ladder, which is going to end up not being used. And sooner or later, you will be giving it away to your friends or neighours who need it (or someone who can make use of it.

Let’s go!

What Kind of Work that You Intend to Use the Step Ladder For

This should be pretty obvious. Are you just looking for a step ladder to reach up the lights, just to change some bulbs? Or just to reach up to the ceiling fan or airconditioner to clean the dust off the fins? Or just to reach up and do some general works? Then buying an aluminium step ladder is good enough for your purpose.

But if you intend to use your step ladder to do some general electrical, DIY wiring works, then our selection of fiberglass ladders are suitable for you. Fiberglass are non-conductive, hence in the event you made a mistake while during the wiring works, you can be sure that your safety is not being compromised.

No one wants to be electrocuted, right?

It can be a good idea to really not use aluminium ladders for electric works. If you ever forgot to turn off or disconnect the power source while wiring the lights, you will see a spark and hear a loud exploding noise. The noise is loud ( in fact, there is no soft, electrical shorting noise, as the energy is great).

So, if you are going to use your step ladder for mostly electrical works, go for a fiberglass ladder. And if you intend to use it for some normal, general usage, then stick with aluminium ladders.

What is the Weight of the Person Using the Step Ladder

Next, consider the weight of the person who is going to use the climbing up and down.

Each step ladder is built using certain load and weight range. They are typically built to withstand the load of 90 kg and above. Some cheapo China-made ladders are not built to any standards of weights, and they can be risky trial and error.

If you are slim and petite girl, weighting less than 60 kg, there is no doubt that any light-weight step ladder is going to suit you just fine. Go with a minium 90kg load rated step ladder. That would give you a solid steps while you are doing your work at heights.
