Inspector Equipment - Ladders

Advice sought on recommended types of ladders used in inspections of apartments and small homes. Here in South Africa, most homes have ceiling heights of about 2.8 to 3.0metres. What are the ladders to access the ceiling hatchway? This is usually a removable section of the ceiling that fits into a recess. Any pros or cons ofExtended telescopic aluminium ladders.

I used a 22’ articulating Werner ladder.



I’m with Larry. Stay away from the extendable one. Just too unsafe in my humble opinion. Others will disagree but I have heard too many stories about those things collapsing while you are on it.

Hope this helps
