What we say:

Brand new to Browns The Lyte 5 Way Platform Ladder 3

We’ve tested the Lyte 5 Way Ladder out for ourselves and have been impressed with its performance. It’s a solid piece of equipment, ideal for jobs where a user person needs more time and freedom of movement.

The wide working surface area makes it extremely comfortable to work from too – in comparison to other ladders – and also offers a degree of safety and stability when working from a height.

Obviously, its versatility is a huge perk. The Lyte 5 Way Ladder certainly lives up to the other products in our combination and multiway ladder range. It can be used an 'A' frame ladder, single ladder, double extension ladder, a platform on stairs, and a work platform – so it’s suitable for a wide variety of trades.

Recommended trade use


As an ‘A’ frame ladder: ‘A’ frame ladders are useful for a multitude of uses and are especially useful for carrying out repairs in the home, or doing odd jobs. The frame also offers a safe and secure base too.

As an extension ladder: If your work involves working at a height and reaching high walls or roofs, extension ladders are a must. For jobs that require lower height access, a single ladder is the best choice.

As a work platform: If you’re going to be working from a fixed height, and want great comfort and stability, a work platform is essential. Work platforms come in useful for a variety of DIY jobs or odd jobs.

As a platform on stairs: The ability to turn the ladder into a sturdy work platform on stairs makes it the ideal for electricians fitting light fittings, painters working on staircases, and carpenters working on balustrades.
