The ability to safely prop this ladder from Chubb against external corners is one of a range of safety features.

A ladder for engineers visiting sites combines a number of safety features. These lightweight ladders from Chubb can easily be transported on roof racks, with all safety features permanently attached.

Safety features include wheels at the top for easy extension of the ladder, a levelling system for use on uneven surfaces, a ‘multi-stopper’ design to prevent slipping and a V-shaped section in the centre of the wheel unit so the ladder can be used against a pole or on an external corner. There is also a rope and cleat to tie the ladder if required.
