A telescopic ladder is an extendable ladder that can be brought down to a much smaller size, which makes it handy in multiple settings. Telescopic ladders are distinct from stepladders in that they fall in on themselves vertically, like a telescope, retracting to have each step join together, and then lock back in to place when the ladder is re-extended. Because of this easy-to-use functionality, many tradespeople and domestic users swear by the telescopic ladder. And for the record, we think they’re pretty great too.
With an extensive range of telescopic ladders to choose from here at Brown ladders, we’ve chosen our 4 best telescopic ladders for 2022. Take a look to see one that suits you the most.
Xtend + Climb SuperPro Series 2.0
This sophisticated product is one of our single best selling telescopic ladders here at Browns, and considering its sturdy construction and array of advanced features, it’s no surprise why! Its matt-black finish is durable and easy to keep clean, even in the most punishing professional environments, and it’s fully compliant to EN131 Professional.
The Xtend+Climb SuperPro Series 2.0 has in fact been fully redesigned from the ground up; its new features include the lightning latch and auto-extending locking stabilising bar. Not only does this provide greater stability when working at height, but also makes it easier to retract the ladder too. Crucially, it retracts without shock or slamming, so that you don’t have to worry about catching your fingers in the mechanism. With all that in mind, it’s easy to see why this Xtend+Climb SuperPro has been described by one customer as “the last ladder you will ever buy”.
Zarges 2.9m Telescopic Ladder
Zarges is a brand that is known throughout the world for their quality and innovation in ladder technology. Highly regarded by tradespeople for reliability, we’d have been remiss not to mention an option from Zarges! But why the Zarges 2.9m telescopic ladder?
Well, we were drawn to it for its exceptional simplicity and reliability. The easy height adjustment and step locking mechanism make this trustworthy ladder idea for most domestic and trade work. And just as this ladder is easy to use, it’s just as easy to transport. Because of its retractable steps, it fits easily into any van or standard car boot. Perfect for those handyman jobs.
Hymer 1.22m Black Line Telescopic Combination Ladder
Hymer is a brand that has been operating across the globe for over 60 years. Trusted and utilised in many business sectors, the Hymer brand is a staple of any reliable ladder merchant. This Hymer 1.22m Black Line telescopic combination ladder is slightly different from the Zarges ladder above. Instead of retracting like a telescope, the black line combi folds down into smaller sides in 4 quarters. You simply adjust the height from stepladder size to roof size by clipping the strong and reliable hinge clamps in place at the size you require.
The versatile use is a real positive here, as the Hymer can be used at a basic stepladder or can be extended to be used as a lean ladder. And at this price, you can’t go wrong.
Youngman 3.2m Telescopic Extension Ladder
Founded in 1926 by Charles Youngman, Youngman Ladders have a reputation for safety, innovation, and quality, and that’s why we’ve made sure to include the Youngman 3.2m telescopic extension ladder in our 2021 roundup. One of our largest telescopic ladders, this is ideal for tradespeople who work at varying heights and want to be unrestricted by the jobs on taller buildings.
The single-handed locking mechanism is great for those used to multitasking, and the slip-resistant grip is an added safety feature that doesn’t come with all telescopic ladders. The extra height is a bonus, but the ladder itself comes with features perfect for casual users too.
These ladders may not be perfect for every job – but you can trust them to excel in any task that they’re designed for. Of course, they’re far from our only options here at Browns Ladders – we’ve got countless more options right here on our site.
