Finding that perfect ladder can be a real chore. You have to figure out exactly what types of projects you will need it for, how long it should be so that you can get the maximum versatility out of it and how much space you have in your garage or your home to store it. When it all comes down to it, you may find a great ladder that can reach the places you need it to, but when it is collapsed down to as small of a size as it can be it simply will not fit in your home. However, all hope is not lost, as you can now find an amazing ladder that will not only allow you to reach great heights and carry several hundred pounds of weight with you but will also collapse down to a size that you can easily store in just about any place. Known as the telescopic ladder, this invention is perfect for people who need to reach places that other ladders cannot take them and stash into a very small space when they are finished.
The telescopic ladder is a fairly recent invention that has come about thanks to the amazing strength of aluminum. Simply put, the ladder can expand and contract much like an old-time telescope and most can easily reach a height of at least twelve feet. When contracted, even the longest of telescopic ladders can fit neatly into a space that is only around fifty inches high, meaning that you can slip it into just about any spot in your garage when you are not using it. There is no need to purchase an extra ladder hanger if you own a telescopic ladder, as hanging it on the wall in order to conserve space is simply not necessary. However, the only shortcoming of a telescopic ladder is that you must lean it against a wall, as there are currently no reliable freestanding telescopic ladder models on the market that can provide you with the same amount of safety and security as a ladder made from traditional A-frame construction.
