Thinking of painting your home this year from an extension ladder? Take the easy option and work from a scaffold tower instead. At Ladders-Online we sell a great DIY aluminium scaffold tower that is ideal for a range of jobs around the house. It’s easier (and much safer) to work from a platform where you can paint, clear gutters, fix soffits, and more. Extension ladders are best suited for quick jobs, where you’re up a ladder drilling a hole for a satellite dish for example. Jobs that you plan to be doing for most of the day or the weekend, are best done from a platform, one like a scaffold tower – so your feet don’t get tired.

Our two videos were done in house by the Ladders-Online team. They show how to safely build each tower and show the base model unit, and the optional extension pack. No tools are needed, everything is supplied. The stabiliser bars need some assembly, but once built they remain on the tower sections and take up little storage space.
