Up on the roof

Don't be a fiddler on the roof who's up there day and night

When working with ladders, it’s important to choose one with the correct specifications for the job at hand. Action Handling carry a large range of ladders for use in a variety of circumstances, including two seemingly similar yet vastly different types of roof ladder, both specifically designed to reach the roof of any building from outside.


Our trade roof ladder is incredibly lightweight, yet combines the strength of a trade ladder with a heavy-duty ridge hook. Industrial-grade non-slip rungs and box section stiles allow for easy climbing, while rubber covered bearer bars distribute the user’s weight evenly when ascending, preventing damage to the roof. Our trade roof ladder is available in single and double sections (double sections fitted with safety catches).

This ladder is designed for trade use and manufactured to take more wear and tear than a domestic ladder. It is suitable for occasional to frequent use in trade environments, while the heavy-duty ridge hook allows more frequent use of the ladder in these situations.

For more demanding and extreme industrial environments, consider using our industrial roof ladder. Manufactured from industrial-grade aluminium, with oval section stiles and sturdy non-slip rungs, it also incorporates a heavy-duty ridge hook and is designed for heavy and frequent use. Rubber covered bearer bars distribute the user’s weight evenly to prevent damage to roof surface and the single section ladder can be extended to a variety of lengths with the addition of roof ladder extension pieces.
