Why are fiberglass ladders better than metal aluminum ladders for electricians?The materials of ladders available in the market are divided into: aluminum alloy ladders, fiberglass (insulated) ladders, wooden ladders, and bamboo ladders. Electricians should use fiberglass ladders rather than metal ladders. Because aluminum ladders are metal ladders that can conduct electricity, they are not as safe as insulated or bamboo ladders, especially when used in high voltage environments. Fiberglass (insulated) ladders are safe and easy to pick up, so electricians generally don’t use aluminum ladders. At the end of the day, safety is the most important factor when choosing a ladder, and the specific ladder depends on its performance characteristics and how it will be used, which is why electricians use fiberglass ladders instead of aluminum ladders.
Why are fiberglass ladders more durable and safer?
We can compare ladders made of different materials. The following are the characteristics of iron, stainless steel, aluminum, wood, fiberglass ladders.
1. Iron material: It is made of ordinary iron, and the outer layer is painted, taking into account the characteristics of waterproof, anti-rust and solid.
2. Stainless steel material: stainless steel material, waterproof and anti-oxidation. There is no need to paint, and the weight is almost the same as that of ordinary iron ladders.
3. Made of aluminum: Aluminum ladders are waterproof, rust-proof, strong and light, but the price is slightly higher.
4. Wooden: Wooden ladders are heavier than aluminum ladders and are prone to aging and damage.
5. FRP material: FRP epoxy resin, full insulation, high temperature resistance, anti-aging, suitable for various live operations.
It can be seen that the mainstream ladder product materials are aluminum alloy, fiberglass and iron. The general working environment adopts aluminum alloy and iron materials. If insulation function is required, fiberglass ladders are preferred.
FRP electric ladderWhat are the advantages and disadvantages of ?
First of all, FRP is mainly from the top up, the glass glass material is a kind of inorganic inorganic non-non-material metal with excellent performance, excellent durability, mechanical, but brittle and wear-resistant , Abrasion resistance. In addition, the service life is as long as 15-20 years. The FRP ladder is made of high-quality pull FRP material. Good UV resistance.
