Industrial ladders are catered for usage in areas like warehouses or SOHOs.

Fiberglass ladders, as the name suggests, is made of fiberglass. Such ladders are particularly popular with buyers who require using a ladder in an environment that contains a lot of wiring and high voltage/current. This is due to the nature of fiberglass, which doesn’t conduct electricity. Hence, such ladders are suitable for use in industries like electrical works as it acts as an insulator.
Domestic ladders are mainly used inside the house for simple household maintenance and repair work. Such ladders usually come in shorter working heights since they are mostly used at homes. Ease of usage is an important feature in such ladders since in usual cases, family members are the ones that uses them to carry out maintenance in the house.
