Scaffold Ladder Sections
Our scaffold ladders come in 6′ and 3′ sections and are secured to scaffolding frames with ladder brackets. The ladders are stacked on top of each other and may be stacked as high as need to access the scaffolding platform. OSHA requires that scaffold ladders extend to at least 3′ above the scaffolding platform you need to access. In the photo on the left, you will see we used a 3′ section at the top to extend a ladder beyond the platform level. You will also see in this photo how the brackets are used to attach the ladder to the scaffolding. Please note that OSHA requires the first ladder section (on the ground level) requires two brackets. Each additional ladder section requires one bracket per section, whether a 6′ section or 3′ section.
If you are considering ladders, you should also check out our stair sections.
Don’t know whether you need ladders or stairs? See our article on the pros and cons of each.
