Make sure your roof ladder has round serrated rungs!

As roof ladders are used at varying roof pitches we don’t recommend that square or D profile rungs be used. A round rung gives the user optimum grip and peace of mind whatever the angle of the ladder. A roof ladder with round serrated rungs has specific design features that can make it better suited for certain tasks, particularly when working on roofs or other elevated surfaces.

Here are some reasons why a roof ladder with round serrated rungs might be preferred:

  1. Enhanced Traction: The serrated rungs, with their jagged or textured surface, provide better traction for your feet when climbing or descending the ladder. This is especially important when working on roofs or other surfaces that may be slippery due to rain, snow, or debris.
  2. Reduced Slipping Risk: Round rungs, as opposed to flat ones, tend to prevent your feet from slipping to the side, reducing the risk of accidents. The serrations further enhance this anti-slip feature.
  3. Comfort and Safety: Round rungs are generally more comfortable to stand on for extended periods compared to flat rungs. This can be important when you’re working on a roof for an extended time, as it reduces foot fatigue.
  4. Versatility: Roof ladders with round serrated rungs are versatile and can be used on various roof types, including sloped roofs. The design allows for a secure grip regardless of the angle of the roof.
  5. Durability: The serrations on the rungs can provide extra durability by reducing wear and tear. This can be particularly important for ladders that are subjected to frequent use and exposure to harsh weather conditions.

It’s important to note that the choice of ladder design depends on the specific requirements of the task at hand. While roof ladders with round serrated rungs may be advantageous for some roofing and elevated work situations, other types of ladders may be more suitable for different tasks. Always prioritise safety and choose the right ladder for the job based on the specific conditions and requirements of your work.
