Design and size

We start to describe the ladder by its unique design and size measurement. The manufacturer designs this particular model in a multi-structure ladder but entitles it as a telescoping ladder.

The name somehow does not suit it. Because it looks like a step ladder but works like a multifunctional ladder.

By the way, the name does not matter what matters; it is an ideal device for your all job. However, it is coated with aluminum (silver color), and the full product dimension is 7.8 x 25 x 56.8 inches.

The overall weight of the device is 0.16 ounces. It is much lighter compared with other commercial-grade ladders.

The most curial part of any ladder is its stability and the security it offers to the user. In this case, we must have to admit this particular model won the battle. Yes, for extreme stability, the manufacturer adds slip-resistance feet so that they can be stable on any surface.

All this setting made the ladder stable and safe to climb and gave it long-lasting durability.

Load capacity
