All you need to know about fibreglass access equipment
If you’re looking for access equipment that’s both durable and non-conductive, there’s no better material choice than fibreglass. Fibreglass access equipment is a great choice for all outdoor work and a must-have for any tradesperson working around live electricity. At Browns Ladders, you’ll find everything from fibreglass platform steps to fibreglass access towers. So whatever your trade, Browns Ladders has the perfect fibreglass access solution.
The perks of fibreglass
The obvious perk of fibreglass is its non-conductive properties. This makes fibreglass access equipment a great choice if you’re working around live sources of electricity. Furthermore, when compared to other non-conductive materials like wood, fibreglass is lighter, easier to transport and longer-lasting too.
Its strength is another benefit that fibreglass has over other materials. Strong and robust, you can expect years of use from any fibreglass product. Its properties also mean that fibreglass is highly resistant to denting and twisting.
Lastly, fibreglass is extremely resistant to weathering. Fibreglass access equipment can be used in the sun and harsh winter conditions and won’t corrode or rust. This makes fibreglass ideal for outdoor work and in trades like painting and decorating.
